I have read all the "Charlie Parker" books. I enjoyed them all, so it was a win already for me buying this book. This was not the best of them but was still a thoroughly enjoyable read. Mr. Connollys foray through a combined detective and horror series of novels works well for me. He is also a wonderful writer at times, A bonus for the bibliophile like me. But the most important thing is the story, and it is told wonderfully.
It is rare that he has erred from a marvelous tale and this novel is no exception. For those of you that love "detective" novels and those who enjoy "horror" tales you are in for a treat.
