The Whisperers: A Charlie Parker Thriller | John Connolly

Oh, little one, he whispered, as he gently stroked her cheek, the first time he had touched her in fifteen years. What have they done to you? What have they done to us all? In his latest dark and chilling Charlie Parker thriller, New York Times bestselling author John Connolly takes us to the border between Maine and Canada. It is there, in the vast and porous Great North Woods, that a dangerous smuggling operation is taking place, run by a group of disenchanted former soldiers, newly returned from Iraq. Illicit goodsdrugs, cash, weapons, even peopleare changing hands. And something else has changed hands. Something ancient and powerful and evil. The authorities suspect something is amiss, but what they cant know is that it is infinitely stranger and more terrifying than anyone can imagine. Anyone, that is, except private detective Charlie Parker, who has his own intimate knowledge of the darkness in mens hearts. As the smugglers begin to die one after another in apparent suicides, Parker is called in to stop the bloodletting. The soldiers actions and the objects they have smuggled have attracted the attention of the reclusive Herod, a man with a taste for the strange. And where Herod goes, so too does the shadowy figure that he calls the Captain. To defeat them, Parker must form an uneasy alliance with a man he fears more than any other, the killer known as the Collector. . . .

This one is a bit slow going, but I'm anxious to see how Parker learns and adapts. I'm going to take a break after this one and cheat with another author. 😁


This is one of the Parker novels which deals with real ongoing issues and is a dark novel because of it. It illuminates current reality and adds a hint of the supernatural to it. For me it highlighted the plight of the war veteran. Someone who has sacrificed for their country and been given the shaft by their commanding officers and those in the higher echelons of the war department. An engrossing read.

#Aprilamazingreads Charlie Parker with Angel and Louis, of John Connolly's great series has my heart when it comes to #fantasticcharacters ❤️📚

TrishB I see another series going on the list.....never read any of these. 3y
DeborahSmall @TrishB he's a fantastic author. The books are very dark. For thrillers the prose is beautiful. Charlie is an ex nypd cop that suffered a great tragedy. He turns PI in Maine. His unlikely friends and sidekicks in many investigations are Angel and Louis, a real mismatched couple. Both add great needed comic relief. Start with 3y
TrishB The first 4 books were available for 9.99 on kindle for all 4, so I may have just brought them 😀 3y

DeborahSmall @TrishB Fab! You'll fall in love. It's breaking my heart that John Connolly is currently speaking about 5 mile away at the Ulster Museum. With everything going on I forgot to get a ticket and when I emailed at the weekend they told me it's sold out. I'm distraught 😭 it's the release of his latest Charlie Parker 3y
TrishB Oh no 😱 that sucks x 3y
lute Love love love the Charlie Parker novels!!! 3y
