Publisher's Summary

Dangerous and driven private investigator Charlie Parker returns in the latest gripping thriller of internationally best-selling author John Connolly's series, in which ungodly fears haunt a strange and isolated community.
Jerome Burnel was once a hero. He intervened to prevent multiple killings and in doing so destroyed himself. His life was torn apart. He was imprisoned, brutalized.
But in his final days, with the hunters circling, he tells his story to private detective Charlie Parker. He speaks of the girl who was marked for death but was saved, of the ones who tormented him and of an entity that hides in a ruined stockade.
Parker is not like other men. He died and was reborn. He is ready to wage war.
Now he will descend upon a strange, isolated community called the Cut and face down a force of men who rule by terror, intimidation, and murder.
All in the name of the being they serve. All in the name of the Dead King.

Read this book!

I downloaded this book the day it was released but before listening, I went back and listened to the previous 2 books (definitely recommend it). I finished 'A Time of Torment' yesterday and it's really been playing on my mind, which is a good thing.

I loved this and didn't want it to end. This is not a fast paced book; the story unwinds slowly and in great detail and no scene is wasted. The writing is very descriptive; The Cut gave me the heebie jeebies in the same way that Caleb Kyle in 'Dark Hollow' did (Parker certainly knows how to find isolated, corrupt communities and/or weirdos) and Paige's story gave me a lump in my throat. Parker's deadliness has been nicely built up in the previous books but until now, it's been more subtle. In this book, it's on full display; even the mention of his name is enough to send folks running for cover. Parker's relationship with The Collector just keeps getting better. Angel & Louis... I know they kill people and all but I just love them. And Sam... she's scarier than all of the characters put together.

This book has reminded me why I loved this series in the first place. I think I'm going to have to go back and listen to some of the earlier books to keep me busy until the next in the series comes out.

Excellent narration by Jeff Harding.

Not his best. Feels like a place holder

I love this series and have been looking forward to a new Parker book. This one left me cold. A rehash of old plot points and lays the groundwork for evolving the series. All good but the storyline here feels lazy and predictable. Guess it is time for some fresh direction and hopefully the next entry into the series will return to form. If you are not a real Parker fan you can skip this one.
