Where is it?
"Complex, pulse-pounding...Connolly's nuanced characterizations and facility at creating spooky atmospherics make it easy to suspend disbelief about the threat of cosmic horror from other dimensions."-- Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Private Investigator Charlie Parker returns in this heart-pounding thriller as he seeks revenge against the darkest forces in the world, from the internationally bestselling author of the acclaimed The Woman in the Woods .

He is our best hope.

He is our last hope.

On a lonely moor in northern England, the body of a young woman is discovered. In the south, a girl lies buried beneath a Saxon mound. To the southeast, the ruins of a priory hide a human skull.

Each is a sacrifice, a summons. And something in the darkness has heard the call.

Charlie Parker has also heard it and from the forests of Maine to the deserts of the Mexican border, from the canals of Amsterdam to the streets of London, he will track those who would cast the world into darkness.

Parker fears no evil--but evil fears him.

With John Connolly's signature "blend of crime and supernatural horror" ( Crime Reads ), A Book of Bones is a terrifying and suspenseful thrill ride that will keep you guessing until the very last page.

Booklist Review
Continuing the story left unfinished at the end of The Woman in the Woods (2018), Connolly pits private eye Charlie Parker against two of the most intriguing villains he's created, the serial killer Pallida Mors and the British lawyer Quayle, who is so convinced of his own unwanted immortality that he believes his only hope for eternal peace is to bring the world to an apocalyptic end. This is the seventeenth book in the Parker series, and it's as fresh and surprising as the first, Every Dead Thing (1999). The key to the series' success is the way the author approaches the stories: although these are mysteries with supernatural elements, Connolly writes them as though they were traditional thrillers, with completely believable plots and real-world characters (even the otherworldly ones). Series fans will be thrilled, and, since the author provides a goodly amount of background to the current story, newcomers can jump right in.--David Pitt Copyright 2010 Booklist
