The White Road | [John Connolly]

The White Road

In South Carolina, a young black man faces the death penalty for the rape and murder of Marianne Larousse, daughter of one of the wealthiest men in the state. It's a case that nobody wants to touch, a case with its roots in old evil, and old evil is private detective Charlie Parker's speciality. But Parker is about to make a descent into the abyss, a confrontation with dark forces that threaten all that Parker holds dear: his lover, his unborn child, even his soul.

Publisher's Summary

In South Carolina, a young black man faces the death penalty for the rape and murder of Marianne Larousse, daughter of one of the wealthiest men in the state. It's a case that nobody wants to touch, a case with its roots in old evil, and old evil is private detective Charlie Parker's speciality. But Parker is about to make a descent into the abyss, a confrontation with dark forces that threaten all that Parker holds dear: his lover, his unborn child, even his soul. . .

For in a prison cell, a fanatical preacher is about to take his revenge on Charlie Parker, its instruments the very men that Parker is hunting, and a strange, hunched creature that keeps its own secrets buried by a riverbank: the undiscovered killer Cyrus Nairn. Soon, all of these figures will face a final reckoning in southern swamps and northern forests, in distant locations linked by a single thread, a place where the paths of the living and the dead converge. A place known only as the White Road.

    "Alonzo"

    I think I have read all of John Connollys ' books ,and have never been disapointed. The White Road is excellent and in keeping with this authors best. His use of the language is first class, his characters whilst complex are interesting, his plots are perhaps deep, but very compete, The Narrator added to the books enjoyment I look forward to further novels

    Story
    "Slightly supernatural, slightly slow!"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    This is a looooooong book that at times feels to be going at a good pace, and sometimes it's incredibly detailed and slightly slow. The plot is good enough, but it could've been told in a much punchier way.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Good fast paced ending that wove the many strands of this story together.


    What does Paul Birchard bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    I enjoyed his accent, brought a real authenticity to the book and its location within the story, although I possibly wouldn't choose the same voice for other stories not set in America.


    Was The White Road worth the listening time?

    Hmmmmm, yes and no. This is the first time I have chosen this author and I'm used to punchier books although I did appreciate his descriptive style more once I had got used to it. I would try the author again, and then discard if it was more of the same.


    Any additional comments?

    This is slightly supernatural but only a teeny tiny hint, so don't base your choice on it, it's 99.9% detective with just a tiny bit of hocus-pocus!
