Publisher's Summary

Irish author John Connolly delivers the third novel in his best-selling, critically acclaimed series featuring troubled ex-cop turned detective Charlie Parker.
John Connolly takes battered ex-cop Charlie Parker on his third outing after Every Dead Thing and Dark Hollow. Still struggling with the horrific ghosts of his past, Parker is now a disillusioned private eye hired to investigate the circumstances surrounding the death of Grace Peltier - which neither her father nor a former US senator believes was suicide. The trail leads to a mass grave in Northern Maine where a Baptist community disappeared 40 years earlier. The deaths of the Baptists and Grace are connected and point in the direction of a shadowy organization known as the Fellowship. With the assistance of some idiosyncratic and murderous acolytes, Parker soon confronts the Fellowship's demonic leader and finds himself caught in a situation more gruesome than even he could ever have imagined.

Needs a different narrator

I might have enjoyed this story better had it been narrated by someone else.
It was so hard to care about the story (and I'm a JC fan) that I was continually thinking that our ceiling needs painting.
Jeff Harding and George Guidall (previous narrators) do Charlie Parker so well. They have the gravitas to actually sound like a former cop whose wife and daughter had been brutally murdered.
By comparison, Holter Graham sounds like a puppy.
I imagine he'd do well narrating other books. His diction is good and his voice is (too) pleasant. Here he just sounds glib, like a candidate for Student Council president.
Too bad.

Book Obliterated By Narrator (sic)

I like Connolly's work, complex and silly as it is.
But he made a HUGE mistake using Holter (?) Graham to read it. If one has prefaced this book by absorbing the preceding issues read by Jeff Harding and others with real talent at this job, one of immediately put off by the high-pitched, nasal screech of this imposter. I came to think of him as 'helium boy' and see him with a clothes pin clamped down on his proboscis. No differentiation between otherwise distinctly individual characters, misplaced emphasis, etc. etc. It was so distracting, I barely remember the plot. I think there may have been references to spiders in there somewhere.
Connolly owes me $10 or so to reimburse me for this travesty.
