Haunted by the murder of his wife and daughter, former New York police detective Charlie Parker retreats home to Scarborough, Maine, to rebuild his shattered life. But his return awakens old ghosts, drawing him into the manhunt for the killer of yet another mother and child. The obvious suspect is the young woman's violent ex-husband. But there is another possibility -- a mythical figure who lurks deep in the dark hollow of Parker's own past, a figure that has haunted his family for generations: the monster known as Caleb Kyle....

Oh Charlie Parker how I adore you and your view of the world. 💜

I just finished up the second book in this series and yet again we find the main character, who is still tormented by his family's murder, striving to do something good in the world around him. Parker is on the search for another sadistic serial killer only this one has link to his own childhood.

Time to watch a childhood favorite while I start the second Charlie Parker book.

Anyone else remember this movie?

#screamathon @4thhouseontheleft

4thhouseontheleft I forgot all about that movie! 3mo
flying_monkeys Love this! I immediately think of the scene/montage where they're putting cat food in the sandwich and replacing apple juice with, err, not apple juice 😂 3mo

I'm so bad about not reading the synopsis on the back of books. @lute I wasn't disappointed in this book. But, bc I didn't read anything about it, I was expecting it to be more like The Book of Lost Things. I'm definitely getting the next in the series bc I like Charlie Parker, Angel and Louis and want to see how I feel about the Charlie Parker series unfettered by assumptions. ⭐⭐⭐.5

lute I believe my first Connelly book was the one you mentioned. The reviews in that book referred to his Parker series. Then I found The Lovers in a discount bin and bought it even though I did not think I'd like it from the synopsis on the cover. I ended up loving it and then started reading the entire series in order. Parker's become one of my favorite protagonists. Angel and Louis add so much. In addition, I love me some good vs. evil action.😁 1y
WhatThePuck I love the 3 main characters! That's why I want to give him another chance. Reading other reviews, I've heard a lot about The Lovers book and hear this series only gets better. I just had a few issues. Lol. Like his old flame. And non consequential characters he discarded haphazardly bc he didn't want to take the time to write them out. "I'll just kill them." Lol. 1y

The first book in the Charlie parker series was so good that i just had to pick this up from the library and it was a corker, a thrill right to the very last page and with this edition including a summary of the future books in the series I'll definitely be reading the next soon.

Cathythoughts Really want to read this author & have that beer ! Summer is coming.... cold beer 2y
andrew61 @Cathythoughts yes i was aware of him but then saw lots of positive feedback on litsy 🍻 2y

This is the second in the Charlie Parker series and just as good as the first. The range of opponents are fairly wide in this, the mafia, two weird dudes Abel and Stritch, a murder and a thief. Louis and Angel appear again and we learn a bit more about their backgrounds including Parker‘s himself. The paranormal element of the story is still there and I like how it contrasts to the events going on. Again the detail is great in this novel.

I spoke to a woman at the pool yesterday who was reading this book from the Charlie Parker series. What do you think about him? I'm always looking for a good mystery/suspense series but wasn't sure if this was too dark and gritty.
