Publisher's Summary

Internationally best-selling author John Connolly returns with another "superb fusion of noir and the supernatural" (My Bookish Ways) in this latest thriller in his gripping Charlie Parker series.
It is deep winter, and the darkness is unending. A private detective named Jaycob Eklund has vanished, and Charlie Parker is assigned to track him down. Parker's employer, Edgar Ross, an agent of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, has his own reasons for wanting Eklund found. Eklund is no ordinary investigator - he is obsessively tracking a series of homicides and disappearances, each linked to reports of hauntings. Now Parker is drawn into Eklund's world: a realm in which the monstrous Mother rules a crumbling criminal empire, in which men strike bargains with angels, and in which the innocent and guilty alike are pawns in a game of ghosts....

Disappointed overall...

Having enjoyed some 13 or 14 Charlie Parker thrillers, part of the excitement is the building tension from a macro perspective, story on story. (The waaiting is the hardest paart.) A Game of Ghosts was mostly an overly complicated story and as such difficult to build excitement throughout. Seemed it had too many characters, scenes, subtexts, and Sally's, to really cohere or grip one like Charlie Parker stories heretofore. It's a necessary read for faithful followers, but overall it was somewhat bland.

Very dark but captivating

Hard to understand all the moving parts but it does come together in the end. Worth the struggle
