The Lovers
The Lovers | John Connolly
10 posts | 7 read | 10 to read
When Charlie Parker was still a boy, his father, a NYPD cop, killed a young couple, a boy and a girl barely older than his son, then took his own life. There was no explanation for his actions. Stripped of his private investigator's license, and watched by the police, Parker is working in a Portland bar, holding down a job and staying out of trouble. But in the background, he is working on his most personal case yet, an investigation into his own origins and the circumstances surrounding the death of his father, Will. It is an investigation that will reveal a life haunted by lies, by his mother's loss and his father's betrayal, by secrets kept and loyalties compromised. And by two figures in the shadows, a man and a woman, with only one purpose: to bring an end to Charlie Parker's existence . . .

Excellent as always. Loved that it provided a lot of the background info on Charlie‘s early years. Great series 👍🏻

JanuarieTimewalker13 Can you read this one first? Or do they have to be read in publication order? 3mo
TrishB @JanuarieTimewalker13 I think these definitely need to be read in order, there is so much personal and back story in them. 3mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 Ok, thank you!! 3mo

TrishB @erzascarletbookgasm @Leftcoastzen @Balibee146 @BarbaraBB @Cathythoughts it was absolutely amazing, best one in a good few years. Leeds 02 Academy a cracking venue, unlike Liverpool 02 Academy which is dire! 3mo
BarbaraBB So cool!! 3mo
TrishB @Addison_Reads I‘m reading through the series slowly- rationing then! They are so good. 3mo

Really enjoyed this novel. It‘s a good companion to the Reapers as we learn more of Parker‘s past in this one. The writing as usual is superb. Parker and Gang are easily my favorite characters right now.

'The Lovers' which is a dark Charlie Parker book, framed romantically by my star-crossed lovers, the predators. I enjoyed this very much. Supernatural and dark, with hints of mysticism

Between.the.lines Love this pic :) 3y
