A Game of Ghosts (Charlie Parker #15) Reviews
This is the 15th Charlie Parker thriller and the books get better each time. I’ve been a rabid fan of Parker’s strange cases since the first book, Every Dead Thing which means I have been reading the author for more than 15 years. That gave me quite a chill. Anyway, I thought A Game of Ghosts was amazing. This book deals with a lot of repercussions of the novel, A Time of Torment especially in relation to Parker’s relationship with his daughter Sam and his ...more
Another exceptional entry in the Charlie Parker series with Charlie investigating the disappearance of a private investigator at the request of the FBI man Ross, with a mysterious group known as The Brethren working its way into the mystery. All of the familiar characters are present in this one and the story contains some surprising developments for important characters. Further proof as to why this is the best series out there and Connolly is the best thriller writer alive, bar none. If you're ...more
At some point, the screaming will end . . .
Strangeness abides within these pages. A series of hauntings, those who wander the paths of the dead, and others who stagger under the gravity of grief. The Brethren, watching and waiting. The Hollow Men, with their crispy whispers and voracious appetites. And Mother.
Crochety comment time. Someone had a picnic in this book, and it was not any of the characters inside. I borrowed this from the public library, and the pages were full of smears and ...more
I received an advance copy of this novel from the publisher through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
One of my favorite mystery series with a supernatural element that started out low key in earlier installments and has come more and more to the forefront. Clearly, we are building toward a big confrontation with a barely described demonic entity and stage is being set for the showdown.
In A Game of Ghosts Charlie Parker, Louis, and Angel have been hired to locate a missing private inves ...more
I read a lot of books, but if I had to pick just let's say five books to read during one year would the latest Charlie Parker book be among them. It strange to think back to the first time I read a Charlie Parker book (not from the beginning) and how I liked the book, but never thought that one day would come when it would be like Christmas every time a new book would be released.
So, how was A Game of Ghosts? Well, let me put it this way. This is a series that keep on being great, this is the fi ...more
After taking a backseat for much of the prior book's narrative, PI Charlie Parker returns as the central focus to A Game of Ghosts. Escaping into the works of John Connolly is always a welcome retreat for me, although this fifteenth entry into this author's eponymous detective series fell a bit flat for me.
Still recovering, and likely permanently diminished, from the attempt on his life a few books back, Parker is back in action and tasked with locating a missing private eye, Jaykob Ecklund. Thi ...more
This time around Charlie Parker is hired to look into the disappearance of Jaycob Eklund. Jaycob is a P.I. that has mysteriously vanished while investigating the history of a group named The Brethren. Louis and Angel get involved and the Collector and his aging father do as well. What FUN!
FBI Agent Edgar Ross is the man who hires Charlie and I still don't trust him or his motives. He won't even tell Charlie why he's searching for Eklund. I'm not sure where Mr. Connolly is going with ...more
Game of Ghosts is the fifteenth book in a series featuring private investigator Charlie Parker. Parker’s bloodstained past has turned him into a man for whom evil is not just a philosophical concept, but a palpable presence. At this point in time, Parker is working off the books for FBI Agent Edgar Ross. He's never quite sure what Ross' agenda is, but it pays well and he hasn't been asked to do anything illegal. Ross asks him to find a man named Jaycob Eklund, another off the books investigator ...more
