Publisher's Summary

John Connolly's originality and talent for storytelling have quickly made him one of today's preeminent thriller writers. Now, in The Unquiet, private detective Charlie Parker returns to untangle a horrifying story of betrayal, unclean desires, and murder - a story of never-ending evil whose conclusion is still unknown.

Daniel Clay, a once-respected psychiatrist, has gone missing. His daughter insists that he killed himself after allegations surfaced that he had betrayed his patients - but when a killer obsessed with uncovering the truth behind his own daughter's disappearance comes seeking revenge, long-forgotten secrets begin to emerge.

Hired by Dr. Clay's daughter to protect her from the predator on the loose, tortured and ingenious private detective Charlie Parker finds himself trapped between those who want the truth to be revealed and those who will go to any length to keep it hidden.

John Connolly masterfully intertwines secret lives and secret sins with the violence that so often lies beneath the surface of the honeycomb world in this gripping narrative. Fast-paced, hypnotic, and elegantly told, The Unquiet is John Connolly at his chilling best.

More mayhem? Listen to another Charlie Parker mystery.

    Story
    "Child Abuse?"

    This is a story about sexually abused children and a group of men who abused them. It was not entertaining to me. Sorry, just not my type of story line.

    Story
    "Another excellent Charlie Parker Mystery."

    I read other reviews of this book but I was not bothered at all by the narration, nor the story. I have enjoyed other narrators but I couldn't find any flaws at all in Guidall's telling of the story. Yes, the book is about a sensitive subject but it wasn't like it was full of court testimony. I think you need to "read" as many Charlie Parker books as possible to understand the character and this was just one in the fabric of him.

    Story
    "Good, but . . ."
    What did you like best about The Unquiet? What did you like least?

    I like all of Connolly's books. The least thing that I liked was the Narrator. To me, Bird is 40'ish and Mr. Guidall makes him sound like an elderly gentleman. Voice just does not go with my vision of Charlie Parker.


    Would you recommend The Unquiet to your friends? Why or why not?

    I would recommend to most friends. The friends who balk at graphic writing would need to pass on Connolly books in this series.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of George Guidall?

    Someone with younger voice.

    "I don't want to look up who did this to me..."

    Either Harlan Coben or Michael Connelly recommended this guy/book. I don't want to go see who did it because it's the only bad thing either of those two would have done to me. I was on the bubble from the description and when I saw George Guidall as reader I went ahead. If it were any other reader I'd have just quit. I can only believe George was relieved as all get out to be done with this too. I can get away from reality with Hecht and Peter Abrahams a bit but this book is just plain boring. It's full of characters that are hard to care about and silly spooky ghosties. I am not a whiner. I do write about things I like as well and I try to rate all my books. This is just not good. 1.5 of the 2 stars are for George just for finishing. I have one hour left on this. I may just bag it because I got Robert B's. final Spenser and John Sandford's Buried Prey in the queue with Andrew Peterson's second Nathan novel. This goes in the bottom ten (of 474 in my library) with another fairly recent review.
