Book Description

“Connolly again displays his mastery at combining the hard-boiled with the supernatural.” —Publishers Weekly (starred and boxed review)

Dangerous and driven private investigator Charlie Parker returns in the latest gripping thriller of internationally bestselling author John Connolly’s series, in which ungodly fears haunt a strange and isolated community.

Jerome Burnel was once a hero. He intervened to prevent multiple killings, and in doing so destroyed himself. His life was torn apart. He was imprisoned, brutalized.

But in his final days, with the hunters circling, he tells his story to private detective Charlie Parker. He speaks of the girl who was marked for death, but was saved; of the ones who tormented him, and an entity that hides in a ruined stockade.

Parker is not like other men. He died, and was reborn. He is ready to wage war.

Now he will descend upon a strange, isolated community called the Cut, and face down a force of men who rule by terror, intimidation, and murder.

All in the name of the being they serve. All in the name of the Dead King.

My Thoughts
My first John Connolly book and I liked it. Now I know there are more books in the Charlie Parker Series  and I will eventually read more. For now, I can say I liked the book, the story, and I think the writing is fantastic. The Author has the ability to capture the reader's attention through his writing, the way the story is told. A fast paced read for me and one that I couldn't put down.

Thank you Atria and Netgalley for the copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
