Publisher's Summary

Daniel Clay, a once-respected psychiatrist, has been missing for years following revelations about harm done to the children in his care. Believing him dead, his daughter Rebecca has tried to come to terms with her father's legacy, but her fragile peace is about to be shattered. Someone is asking questions about Daniel Clay, someone who does not believe that he is dead: the revenger Merrick, a father and a killer obsessed with discovering the truth about his own daughter's disappearance. Private detective Charlie Parker is hired to make Merrick go away, but Merrick will not be stopped. Soon Parker finds himself trapped between those who want the truth about Daniel Clay to be revealed, and those who want it to remain hidden at all costs.

But there are other forces at work here. Someone is funding Merrick's hunt, a ghost from Parker's past. And Merrick's actions have drawn others from the shadows, half-glimpsed figures intent upon their own form of revenge, pale wraiths drifting through the ranks of the unquiet dead. The Hollow Men have come….

    Story
    "Classic Parker"
    What made the experience of listening to The Unquiet the most enjoyable?

    This was a classic Parker novel featuring Angel and Louis and a bit of The Collector. A great story, the writing of wrongs and the usual deceptions and half truths.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Parker takes it closely followed by Angel the Louis. Why? Because he's Parker, abrasive, irritating and antagonist. Marvelous.


    What about Jeff Harding’s performance did you like?

    First class, totally inseparable with Connolly/Parker now.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    No one tells the truth all the time.

    "Painfully slow and dull."

    Another tale of of the American detective Charlie Parker. This time he is hired by the daughter of a prominent psychiatrist that has been missing for years, after he was linked to a child abuse scandal. To further complicate matters the daughter is being stalked by a menacing killer who is also searching for information on the psychatrists whereabouts...and so the story continues from here. I thought it would have a similar pace and supernatural backdrop to "Black Angel", which I enjoyed immensley, but I was sadly dissappointed.

    The pace is painfully slow and the plot is tinged with overtones of a bad "Sam Spade" detective novel. Apologies to John Connolly fans. This is only the 2nd John Connolly novel I have purchased. I'm sad to say it may well be the last. I found the story lacked true suspense. At times the level of irrelevant detail blocked the story instead of enhancing it and bringing it to life.

    I'm not a fan of American narrators either. However I fully appreciate that you need the right voice for the right story. Plumby vowels really wouldn't work on this plotline. I think Jeff Harding does good job with variery of voices and trying to make each character different and unique. Which can't be an easy task for an audio book.

    Sorry Audible but I'm really sad to say that this little audio book adventure left me disappointed and bored.
