THE WOLF IN WINTER (Charlie Parker #12)
The next pulse-pounding thriller in John Connolly's internationally bestselling Charlie Parker series.
The community of Prosperous, Maine has always thrived when others have suffered. Its inhabitants are wealthy, its children’s future secure. It shuns outsiders. It guards its own. And at the heart of Prosperous lie the ruins of an ancient church, transported stone by stone from England centuries earlier by the founders of the town…
But the death of a homeless man and the disappearance of his daughter draw the haunted, lethal private investigator Charlie Parker to Prosperous. Parker is a dangerous man, driven by compassion, by rage, and by the desire for vengeance. In him the town and its protectors sense a threat graver than any they have faced in their long history, and in the comfortable, sheltered inhabitants of a small Maine town, Parker will encounter his most vicious opponents yet.
Charlie Parker has been marked to die so that Prosperous may survive.
Prosperous, and the secret that it hides beneath its ruins…
I am getting to this book late along with the review. I always want to read the next Charlie Parker book but there is a part of me that does not. Though the stories can and do have a dark side to them. I found this book to be a fast paced read and though it had a dark and sinister feel the story line stayed with this one book. It begins with a homeless man looking for his daughter, and you do find out why he is homeless and what is going on with his daughter. He ends up in a town in Maine but is sent away twice and after the second time told not to come back. The man keeps searching and reaches out to Charlie. By the time Charlie gets the message and looks for him he finds that he is dead. Now after asking around he is not going to let it go and is going to look for his daughter. This leads him back to the same town, and the leaders of this town want him gone. He is asking too many questions. The leaders of this town want him taken out but the sheriff is telling them to let him go. When you get to the end of this fast paced story you will find out you was right. An excellent book. I got this book from netgalley. I gave it 5 stars. Follow us at www.1rad-readerreviews.com
