Apparently, after I took that Ambien and went to bed, I got up in the middle of the night and not only ate a bag of chocolate chips, I also logged on to Amazon, read the exhuberant testimonials about this book, navigated my bumbling self over to Audible, and downloaded this gem about some detective named Charlie Parker -- whom, in this 11th adventure, takes on the armies of the Fallen Angels..... (I vaguely remember the chocolate chips).
I wasn't going to admit to this book--but, it has sat in my library with a reminder to write a review, like a scarlet reminder of my folly--I have to get it off my chest (and the melted chocolate chips). My apologies to Parker fans, but wwhhhaaattt a weiner. Maybe the other 10 volumes about this Parker guy are incredibly good, but this 11th Mystery reminded me of a decent book I read by Jim Butcher--except Butcher acknowledged his detective worked both sides of reality. Connolly was trying to sell me that these heavenly rejects were working this world--the whole legion going about their evil-for-what-purpose?? ways under the radar, with the lone wunder detective taking them on. Mind you, I was now awake and conscious listening to this sh-tuff. There were more knots and twists and supernatural characters than a drug-induced nightmare. With only about 1 1/2 hours to go to find out whether the world survives...I decided to call it quits, take an Ambien and go to bed (hide the keyboard and chocolate). Sorry Parker fans (don't hate--maybe suggest a better Parker read). And to those of you that likewise depend on chemical aid to fight bouts of insomnia...stay off the computer and out of the kitchen! If the FDA gets wind of this, forgive me for adding ammunition to their fight to lower your Ambien prescription.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
yes I enjoyed it. The pacing was great. I would certainly forewarn that at times Parker can be a bit gruesome but it is a demon/ghost story
