The Woman in the Woods (Charlie Parker #16) Reviews
Surely this is one of the best crime series in existence. I've been a fan for too long to be able to think objectively about the Charlie Parker books, so four stars, brilliant as usual.
Many readers typically discuss the darker, arcane side of John Connolly’s Charlie Parker series but – as the 16th book brilliantly demonstrates – there’s a solid private detective story at the core of this convoluted story. So while a dark cabal plots the end of everything and the rise of apocalyptic gods, social issues and the practical plight of credible people form the book’s main focus.
Charlie has been hired to find a lost child, and what follows is a good old fashioned gumshoe investigation ...more
Review: THE WOMAN IN THE WOODS by John Connolly (Charlie Parker #16)
The inimitable private detective Charlie Parker never disappoints, nor does his creator, John Connolly. Every adventure of Parker's is riveting, raising further the veil hiding the Other Side. In this novel, Charlie Parker becomes if possible more philosophical, more metaphysical, even more attuned to the supernatural, preternatural, the otherworldly. His deep and abiding capacity for self-analysis put me in mind of St. Teresa o ...more
Another masterpiece by John Connolly
Charlie Parker is a desirable and must read. A read too hard to put down. Looking forward to the next chapter .
Wow. Another fantastic entry in the Charlie Parker series that drops some significant (and worrying) clues as to where the series is heading, while also working as a gripping standalone thriller in its own right.
I'm a long-term fan, full disclosure here, but unlike many of my old favourites, Connolly just seems to go from strength to strength. In this book, his astonishing creativity and his gift for weaving words together in ways that remind you of why you used to read poetry are perfectly har ...more
The Woman in the Woods is the sixteenth book in Connolly’s long-running Charlie Parker series yet it somehow feels just as fresh as the first. It’s hard to dive deep into the plot without potentially giving away some light spoilers from prior books, so if you want to remain a virgin to the series, maybe skip this review and go pick up Every Dead Thing already.
The remains of a woman are discovered partially buried in the forest. Evidence suggests that she had given birth shortly before her death ...more
"It is spring, and the semi-preserved body of a young Jewish woman is discovered buried in the Maine woods. It is clear that she gave birth shortly before her death.
But there is no sign of a baby..."
I'm grateful to the publisher for an advance copy of The Woman in the Woods.
I'm a latecomer to Connolly's Charlie Parker thrillers, having read my first, A Game of Ghosts, last year, and thoroughly enjoyed it. I discovered that there's a good back catalogue of these books which - for now - I'm saving ...more
The Woman in the Woods is the latest Charlie Parker novel. Although I am not generally a fan of horror, the Charlie Parker novels combine excellent writing, compelling characters, suspenseful mystery, and the supernatural in an unusual amalgamation that makes me hold my breath each time.
Always: a battle of good vs evil with collateral damage on both sides, the loss of good people, characters that you come to love despite their decidedly criminal backgrounds, a creep factor that chills down to th ...more
