Publisher's Summary

The Black Angel is not an object. The Black Angel is not a myth. The Black Angel lives. A young woman goes missing from the streets of New York. Those who have taken her believe that nobody cares about her, and that no one will come looking for her. They are wrong. She is 'blood' to the killer Louis, the man who stands at the right hand of private detective Charlie Parker, and Louis will tear apart anyone who stands in the way of his attempts to find her. But as Louis's violent search progresses, Parker comes to realize that the disappearance is part of an older mystery, one that is linked to an ornate church of bones in Eastern Europe, to the slaughter at a French monastery in 1944, and to the quest for a mythical prize that has been sought for centuries by evil men: the Black Angel.
Yet the Black Angel is more than a myth. It is conscious. It dreams. It is alive. And men are not the only creatures that seek it…

Lecter eats Langdon in Marlowes office.

I have not read this particular genre before but it was a cracking first read of a John Connolly book. Part serial killer thriller, part detective noir and part supernatural mystery but with just the right touch of humour and a freshness to the prose to keep you listening. Imagine Silence of the lambs meets the Da Vinci code with the mystery untangled by Raymond Chandler after a night watching the Omen.
Not only does John Connollys story entertain but Jeff Harding as the narrator does an excellent job. I feel he struggled in one or two places with pronunciation but overall he brought the book to life.

Probably my favourite Charlie Parker novel. A fine selection of characters, humour, rich language with the recurring undercurrent becoming more clear. I love the hints of the eternal struggle between good and evil manifested in the corporeal plane.

The disintegration of Charlie's marriage at first seems a little cliched but as things develop cliched is not what it is.

Once against wonderfully read by Jeff Harding. Thanks Jeff
