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.

Charlie Parker survives another incredible

Charlie Parker survives another incredible investigation. John Connolly and narrator Jeff Harding go hand in glove and together they produce genuine page turners. An excellent series belonging in the top tier.

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.

Excellent

The writing is as good as it gets, as is the narration. Best to start at the first book for the background of this series

Gripping read and the story comes alive by the excellent delivery by Jeff Harding!

I love Charlie Parker and his friends. The description of the spider attack’s were so detailed that I couldn’t listen and forwarded until it was safe to listen again.
I hate spiders so at times my flesh was actually crawling and made me shiver in fear. Bloody excellent story made real by the way it was read.
Highly recommend!

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.
