Publisher's summary

Private investigator Charlie Parker returns in this heart-pounding thriller, with Angel and Louis taking centre stage, following from events in A Book of Bones, from the internationally best-selling author of the acclaimed Charlie Parker novels.

In Amsterdam, three people are butchered in a canal house, their remains arranged around the crucified form of their patriarch, De Jaager: fixer, go-between and confidante of the assassin named Louis. The men responsible for the murders are Serbian war criminals. They believe they can escape retribution by retreating to their homeland. 

They are wrong. 

For Louis has come to Europe to hunt them down: five killers to be found and punished before they can vanish into the east.  

There is only one problem.

The sixth.

Best one in a long Time

I really enjoyed this book, as a big van of John Connolly i was disappointed at the previous couple but i feel like he is back in his grove on this one.

Not much about Charlie Parker

I liked the fact Charlie eventually got it on with the police woman. Finally. But stuff about Serbian crime gangs became ever so boring. Bring back Maine and Charlie as the prime story lines. You almost lost me on this one.

Another great book

I have read every book in this series and loved them all. Even with just a passing cameo role of Parker this time around, the author has still captured the magic with Angel and Louis. Great narration. When is the next book out !

the nameless ones

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, just as I've enjoyed all John Connolly books. Angel and Louis play the main characters with Charlie Parker playing the small part. This in no way spoils the book as Charlie Parker books need Angel and Louis. I was hooked on this book and didn't want it to end.

Not enough Charlie Parker

Love this series of books but I have to say I missed having Parker as the main character!

I didn't think I could love Louis more...

...but apparently I can! I think is one of the best of the Charlie Parker series, and even though Parker makes few appearances, the depth of his attachment to Angel and Louis shines through with absolute clarity. It makes such a glorious change to read - or listen to! - a book where make friendship is so clearly apparent without the writing feeling laboured in any way.

This book was an absolute joy and of course that's in no small part due to my absolute devotion to Louis and his wicked sharp tongue. Bravo, Mr Connolly!

Awful

Badly performed, the content is gratuitously sadistic and horribly misogynistic. I had to clean out my ears after I heard the first hour of this dreadful book. Will not, cannot listen to the remainder.

I'd like more Charlie Parker

Whilst this is part of the series I did not enjoy this as much as the earlier books. This is about Angel and Louie and their revenge . I re listened to this as the latest in the series is due out in days and I wanted to remind myself where the story is up to. If you are following this series you might feel you should listen to this as I did however as I said not the one I enjoyed it like the other earlier ones. Jeff Harding reads it perfectly so a 5 star for him.

Purchased despite dismal last two books

This is significantly more enjoyable than the last two books, but suffers because it's far too long. None of the characters other than Charlie, (who makes a fleeting appearance) and Louis and Angel, are just not interesting even as supposed super baddies. The series does not appear to be going anywhere, It's tired, formulaic, repetitious and not within shouting distance of the earlier Charlie Parker books which were magnificent. Jeff Harding is again up to his spectacular best form.
