Prosperous, and the secret that it hides beneath its ruins...
The community of Prosperous, Maine has always thrived when others have suffered. Its inhabitants are wealthy, its children's future secure. It shuns outsiders. It guards its own. And at the heart of Prosperous lie the ruins of an ancient church, transported stone by stone from England centuries earlier by the founders of the town... But the death of a homeless man and the disappearance of his daughter draw the haunted, lethal private investigator Charlie Parker to Prosperous.
Parker is a dangerous man, driven by compassion, by rage, and by the desire for vengeance. In him the town and its protectors sense a threat graver than any they have faced in their long history, and in the comfortable, sheltered inhabitants of a small Maine town, Parker will encounter his most vicious opponents yet. Charlie Parker has been marked to die so that Prosperous may survive.

I'm not familiar with this author so didn't know what to expect, although the preview sounded interesting.
The story is weird, borders on science-fi and refers to characters in previous books. I won't be seeking them out.
Jeff Harding does his usual excellent narration and full marks for not snorting in derision at some of the daftest sections of this very forgettable tale.
"excellent as usual"
another great parker book they just keep coming keep them up john just do more
I like John Connolly's 'Charlie Parker' books. Have read his books over the years and must say this is one of his best. Loved the story line, with a very good narrator to make it enjoyable to listen to.
"Chillingly good read - as always!"
Jeff Harding brings the characters and story to life. I am ever a fan of Charlie Parker and his friends
