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.

4 out of 5 stars
By Cathy E. Howe on 12-21-17

The scariest book of the series, for me.

I re-read the series every year, and I hear different things every time. This one is something I cannot read at night. Too much of my least favorite thing! So glad John Connolly finally got this book on Audible.

Anyone who is not a resident of Maine will probably not be bothered by the faults in narration. However, I would like to offer my free expert advice to all narrators who are giving voice to books set in Maine. As a life long resident, I could tell you that "Calais" is, in Maine, pronounced like "callous", not "cal-ay" like the French, or how "Machias" is pronounced. That kind of thing is the only reason this book did not get a full five stars. Most of the narrators make these mistakes, even while they capture our Downeast accent, and use it for all of us, although there are at least 4 distinct regional accents

Other than that, you will enjoy this book!.
