Publisher's Summary

In the depths of the Maine woods, the wreckage of a plane is discovered. There are no bodies, and no such plane has ever been reported missing, but men both good and evil have been seeking it for a long, long time. What the wreckage conceals is more important than money. It is power: a list of names, a record of those who have struck a deal with the devil. Now a battle is about to commence between those who want the list to remain secret and those for whom it represents a crucial weapon in the struggle against the forces of darkness.

The race to secure the prize draws in private detective Charlie Parker, a man who knows more than most about the nature of the terrible evil that seeks to impose itself on the world, and who fears that his own name may be on the list. It lures others, too: a beautiful, scarred woman with a taste for killing; a silent child who remembers his own death; and a serial killer known as the Collector, who sees in the list new lambs for his slaughter. But as the rival forces descend upon this northern state, the woods prepare to meet them, for the forest depths hide other secrets. Someone has survived the crash. Something has survived the crash.

And it is waiting....

Demons, missing airplanes and hauntings oh my

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

yes I enjoyed it. The pacing was great. I would certainly forewarn that at times Parker can be a bit gruesome but it is a demon/ghost story

Excellent Book - Great Characters

John Connolly’s “Charlie Parker” series is a winner. This is the second book I’ve read, and the combination of hard-boiled private eye combined with slightly paranormal tendencies makes for a fast-paced, page turner that keeps you engaged to the end. The private detective, Charlie Parker, is a detective with jazz in his soul. His dry manner and the calm way he deals with fantastic events is what makes his character so likable. The secondary characters are equally well developed. I’ve never read any of Connolly’s fiction before this, but now I’m definitely hooked, and looking forward to another installment.

A paper list?

Ok so the use of the list felt out of place and unbelievable, like the backers are so powerful and have so much money but they keep a paper list with the names of the people who are in debt or working with them... Really!?

Other than that this was great, feel bad for some characters that met their end, and every time the girl was on I was literally scared I couldn't listen to those parts alone or at night.

I'm in love with this series and I look forward for the next book.

Another Case Against Am*B*N...

Apparently, after I took that Ambien and went to bed, I got up in the middle of the night and not only ate a bag of chocolate chips, I also logged on to Amazon, read the exhuberant testimonials about this book, navigated my bumbling self over to Audible, and downloaded this gem about some detective named Charlie Parker -- whom, in this 11th adventure, takes on the armies of the Fallen Angels..... (I vaguely remember the chocolate chips).

I wasn't going to admit to this book--but, it has sat in my library with a reminder to write a review, like a scarlet reminder of my folly--I have to get it off my chest (and the melted chocolate chips). My apologies to Parker fans, but wwhhhaaattt a weiner. Maybe the other 10 volumes about this Parker guy are incredibly good, but this 11th Mystery reminded me of a decent book I read by Jim Butcher--except Butcher acknowledged his detective worked both sides of reality. Connolly was trying to sell me that these heavenly rejects were working this world--the whole legion going about their evil-for-what-purpose?? ways under the radar, with the lone wunder detective taking them on. Mind you, I was now awake and conscious listening to this sh-tuff. There were more knots and twists and supernatural characters than a drug-induced nightmare. With only about 1 1/2 hours to go to find out whether the world survives...I decided to call it quits, take an Ambien and go to bed (hide the keyboard and chocolate). Sorry Parker fans (don't hate--maybe suggest a better Parker read). And to those of you that likewise depend on chemical aid to fight bouts of insomnia...stay off the computer and out of the kitchen! If the FDA gets wind of this, forgive me for adding ammunition to their fight to lower your Ambien prescription.

Don’t use him again

I’m liking audible but this guy falls short
After you hear the Author himself nothing else will do
You feel cheated when it’s someone else’s
Especially Angel’s voice

Read Dirty South instead

This can’t possibly be the same John Connolly who authored Dirty South. That was a good book.

Bad Narration

If you are a fan of John Connolly books, this narrator may make it difficult to finish this book. Otherwise, it’s another great Parker, Luis and Angel story.

Don’t waste your time!

Slow and boring with lots of politics and stereotyping.

I couldn’t finish it after repeated attempts.

Another great Charlie Parker story

A little darker than some of the stories, but entertaining till the end. Thank you John Connolly!
