Publisher's Summary

In South Carolina, a young black man faces the death penalty for the rape and murder of Marianne Larousse, daughter of one of the wealthiest men in the state. It's a case that nobody wants to touch, a case with its roots in old evil, and old evil is private detective Charlie Parker's speciality. But Parker is about to make a descent into the abyss, a confrontation with dark forces that threaten all that Parker holds dear: his lover, his unborn child, even his soul. . .
For in a prison cell, a fanatical preacher is about to take his revenge on Charlie Parker, its instruments the very men that Parker is hunting, and a strange, hunched creature that keeps its own secrets buried by a riverbank: the undiscovered killer Cyrus Nairn. Soon, all of these figures will face a final reckoning in southern swamps and northern forests, in distant locations linked by a single thread, a place where the paths of the living and the dead converge. A place known only as the White Road.

Change in narrator is off putting

The story is good, my favorite in the series so far, but the change or narrated, and thus voices as a result, throws you off at first.

I'll give Paul that he is a good voice actor, but the voices for Charlie, Angel, and Louis were just off. would have given him a higher rating though if he had pronounced Louis correctly though

I think I have read all of John Connollys ' books ,and have never been disapointed. The White Road is excellent and in keeping with this authors best. His use of the language is first class, his characters whilst complex are interesting, his plots are perhaps deep, but very compete, The Narrator added to the books enjoyment I look forward to further novels

sorry Paul Birchard, bring back Jeff Harding

Would you consider the audio edition of The White Road to be better than the print version?

no, not even slightly better, and I love the John Connolly tales on audio

What did you like best about this story?

it's yet another excellent John Connolly, and a great story about Louis' background, but I only know that because I've read the print version

How could the performance have been better?

Something about Paul Birchard's voice just didn't sit with me, I'm pleased he only narrated one of the Charlie Parker books!

Any additional comments?

I'll keep the book just so I have the full set, but I really can't listen to the narrator, he's stopped me listening to the books until I re-read the print version!

Slightly disappointed !

The overall story is a good crime fiction but I found the paranormal element a touch unbelievable and this reduced the grittiness of the storyline for me. I marked the narrator down although he was very good. He wasn't the same narrator as in the previous books in this series and his accent changed the dynamics of the characters. Also it took me a while to realise that Lewis (Louis)was the same person as Looey in the previous books.
