Publisher's Summary

Did Grace Peltier commit suicide?

When a mass grave in northern Maine reveals the final resting place of a religious community that disappeared almost 40 years earlier, private detective Charlie Parker, hired to investigate the circumstances of her death, realises that their deaths and the violent passing of Grace Peltier are part of the same mystery, one that has its roots in her family history and in the origins of the shadowy organisation known as the Fellowship.

Aided by the genial killers Angel and Louis, Parker must descend into the depths of a honeycomb world populated by dark angels and lost souls, a world where the ghosts of the dead wait for justice and the unwary are prey for the worst kind of creatures: the killing kind.

I just love these books!

I'm going through all 12 (now 13) sequentially with no break! I have read about half but they are superb in as audible.

incredible!!

I read this several years ago and got hooked on John Connelly and the Charlie Parker series. this stands up there as one of the best crime, action, thrillers out there!

the narrator however turns this from an excellent book into an incredible experience. his portrayal of Charlie Parker is exactly how I pictured it and his characters and inflection bring life to the bit parts, the side kicks and the sinister evil villains

If you come across this book and your tempted to try something new you cannot go wrong!!

unless your afraid of spiders that is!

Arachnophobs Beware!

Should have a warning on this book. Had I not have Arachnophobia, I would have enjoyed this story much more. If you are not bothered about spiders, then you will love it!

Repellent

The narrator was excellent but the story was so-so; usual sort of PI stuff but repugnant.

Dark and evil with humorous wisecracks

The frankly patchy quality of the writing in the Charlie Parker series starts to come together into a great crime series. The characterisation and dialogue is excellent and the darkness of the plot vivid.

Great story

The characters are of the old era the dialog it reminds me of the 1950's detective with the smart answers and Jeff Harding tells it wonderfully
