First let me say, I have NEVER read a "gum-shoe" novel although I love good TV murder mysteries (True Detective, The Bridge and the Fargo series are some recent favorites.) I chose to read these because a goodreads friend mentioned a strong supernatural element.

Charlie Parker sees the ghosts of those who have been victims of injustice, always involving a truly grotesque serial killer. The prose that the author surrounds these grisly events make it more than the usual, wise cracking PI dialogue.

The best thing i liked from Connoly, his writing skill. How he describes every dead people perfectly. About their skin, bout the lost baby from their mother. And he make a story line that make you always curious.

but its all Phillip Margollins' fault. He already write something that make me , have a right shot, who is the cold killer. And i already know from the page 179 (in indonesian book) that someone who really closer to Jim, he did it.

I read all of these books individually and not in the box set, and I fell in love with Connolly's style. I was always aware of the King connection and having read King post Connolly, I am inclined to prefer latter. His style is so gripping and his narratives include many supra-sensible themes including reincarnation and the possessions of human beings. A great writer, very skilled.

Hang on tight

This is a wild and surprising ride! I couldn't put this book down, and now I have done nothing but read for two days.

A collection of dark and mysterious characters which make for a thrilling but chilling read. Enjoyed every one but left with an unease about the world inhabited by the characters.
Not for the lighthearted.
I will wait with baited breath for the next Charlie Parker mystery.
