Publisher's Summary

“One of the best thriller writers we have.” (Harlan Coben, number one New York Times best-selling author)

From the international and instant New York Times best-selling author of The Dirty South, the white-knuckled Charlie Parker series returns with this heart-pounding race to hunt down the deadliest of war criminals.

In Amsterdam, four bodies, violently butchered, are discovered in a canal house, the remains of friends and confidantes of the assassin known only as 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 thin air.

There is just one problem.

The sixth. 

With John Connolly’s trademark “dark, haunting, and beautifully told” (Booklist) prose and breathless twists and turns, The Nameless Ones is an unputdownable thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Not up to the usual standard

I have been a fan of the Charlie Parker series and have listened to each book via Audible. This one isn’t up the the usual standard of suspense. I gave up at chapter 13 to escape the boredom.

Somehow I finished this…

Not one of my Favorites. Not sure if it was the setting, Russia and surrounding countries which required strange names and locations or if it was the narrator the came off like a college professor in a lecture hall. Either way, I found it confusing and torture to finished. Never figured out who the good guys were supposed to be.

Excellent Story

This is an excellent novel, well plotted and filled with interesting characters and locales. It is an international crime novel with a hint of the supernatural unlike anything I had read (listened too) before. I recommend it.

not as good as the others

I love John Connolly's writing, but this one wasn't as entertaining as most of his stuff. I won't spoil anything, but the ratio of actual story to explaining a bunch of the behind the scenes technical workings of European corruption and their motivations due to some history or another was way off balanced. I found myself losing track of the story because my mind was drifting from boredom. but when I'd go back to listen to what I missed, I only found that it didn't really matter in the first place. I don't regret purchasing, but I wouldn't have missed out on anything in the overall storyline if I hadn't.

Amazing! I love stories about the reapers

As we approach the possible end of the Serie, because our beloved characters are aging. I enjoyed this continued pause on the main story to close ends and to see or read more about the enigmatic Loui and Angel.

Very boring and convoluted

I usually enjoy John Connolly’s books, but this was a real exception. There were so many characters that I felt I would have to sit and diagram them to keep track, which defeats the purpose of an audiobook. A convoluted plot with excessive details, that went everywhere, and made me zone out a lot. Too bad, because I was looking forward to an adventure starring Louis and Angel, my 2 faves in the series.

a good addition

I enjoyed the story, as Louis and Angel are always entertaining to hear about. I wish there had been more specifics about their escapades or how they hunted. Would have liked more of the supernatural tint as well. overall, a good listen .

If you love the Parker series, stop reading reviews and get started on this one

This is the 19th book in the Parker series, so I really don’t understand the need for reviews around the content. If you have read the first 18, then you are an obsessed fan (like me) and you will love this one. If you have not read the previous 18 entries, then you certainly don’t want to start here. However — this is a Louis-centric story involving horrific villains, and we get to continue to associate with Parker (although briefly), Ross, Angel, The Great Lost Bear, and other key pieces of the Parker Saga. If you are a fan and if you have read all of the previous Parker novels, you should stop reading reviews and listen now!
