Connolly's pacing is excellent as usual--this seemed an issue in the last mystery/thriller book I read, when the ending came from . . . nowhere, left field. It wasn't so much a twisted ended as it was a subplot that had never been developed. But not this book, not the Whisperers. Charlie Parker is a most unusual detective; he's a good man with a few good friends, who draws in the shadow world around him, and this time, it involves a museum of antiquities in Iraq, its destruction and looting during the second Iraq War, which most of us watched on television. I always look forward to the next book. Connolly can totally creep me out, and this one had its horrors, but there is also new information about Parker and the Collector. This is still an interesting read if you have not followed this series.
