Format: Hardcover
Connolly's Charlie Parker is but one compelling and dark character in this ongoing series. Perhaps the darkest is his imaginings of Maine and other parts of New England. He has created a shadow world that provides an amazing backdrop for the unfortunate events in which Parker perpetually finds himself. It is interesting that a former Irish journalist picked this particular part of the world and pulls it off like a local. I have read the whole series which has been strong throughout. The Burning Soul was the first I encountered that may signal tiredness and repetition. All elements are there but this one dragged and was predictable in resolution because Connolly has created a now familiar pattern. I will hang in there for the next as he is talented and should be able to rejuvenate. As a side note, I thought the State of Maine Tourism Department should set up Connolly and Stephen King themed tours...then I Googled that idea for fun and discovered there are private narrated tours of the Stephen King sites in and around the Bangor, Maine area!

When he's not bogged down in the supernatural, John Connolly can write a pretty good crime novel, although not quite in the same class as the four "C's", Connelly, Coben, Crais and Child.

In this one there is just a bit about TV's going on and off in the night and dead children writing on windows and knocking on doors; rather it is a fairly straightforward story, based in part on real life gangsters who once operated in the Boston area.

In order to make the novel more interesting, Google "Whitey Bulger" and read his biography on Wickopedia; this is the same guy upon whom the TV series "The Brotherhood" and the Scorsese movie "The Departed" was based.

Connolly mentions Bulger in the acknowledgements and hopefully will continue to stick to crime and leave the ghosts to someone else.

I have not read very many of John Connolly's books, but the ones I have read have held my interest from the beginning. This is a well written story and will be well received by Charlie Parker fans. I was thoroughly captured by the story and read every line on every page. I hope others will find the book as good as I did.
