NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR JOHN CONNOLLY WRITES A LYRICAL, HAUNTING TALE THAT TURNS TO PRIVATE INVESTIGATOR CHARLIE PARKER'S HIDDEN PAST . . . AND A SEARCH THAT FORCES HIM TO INVESTIGATE ALL THAT HE HAS EVER BELIEVED TRUE ABOUT HIS BELOVED PARENTS--AND HIMSELF.

Stripped of his license, Charlie Parker takes a job in a Portland bar. Alone and directionless, he faces at last a shadow he has lived with since his childhood: what made his father, a respected police officer, apparently shoot dead two unarmed teens and then commit suicide. His quest leads him back to the little New York town where he grew up, to the mysterious history of the NYPD, and to the existence of secret friends and hidden enemies.

And waiting in the shadows, as they have been throughout Charlie's life, are a man and a woman with only one purpose: to bring an end to his very existence. . . .

Always entertaining and dark. Focus on Charlie Parker's past and the evil beings that preceded his birth and want to destroy him and those close to him. Strongly recommend you read all 15 books (to 2017). I hope Connolly keeps on writing them.

My first time reading about Charlie Parker. The book was excellently written, but I was disappointed in the supernatural element since I haven't read a book since the end of last year and was looking for more a conventional suspense/thriller book. I do recommend reading John Connolly; he is an excellent writer.

Awsome, as always. Can't wait to read more Charlie Parker.

Another Charlie Parker suspense novel with some new twists and turns, but never going too far from his built up reputation of the hero of the story.
