'What's the worst thing you've ever done?' The thrilling new Charlie Parker novel from bestselling author John Connolly.
John Connolly was born in Dublin in 1968. His debut - EVERY DEAD THING - swiftly launched him right into the front rank of thriller writers, and all his subsequent novels have been Sunday Timesbestsellers. He is the first non-American writer to win the US Shamus award.
'Connolly's imagination like that of C.S.Lewis, serves a moral code.' - Sydney Morning Herald This master Irish storyteller...so poetically frames the uncanny and disturbing within reasonable, believable events that take place within the context of the hard-boiled thriller. And who writes such gorgeous set-piece scenes expressing sorrow for that which is irrecoverably gone; the way unresolved issues, hurts, betrayals and sometimes people, by accident or design, find a way to break through the layers and confront us from the past... For anyone who loves the resonances and allusions of good writing, as well as the juxtaposition of seemingly incompatible literary forms, Connolly's your guy. But expect to hear the shadows whisper in the room where you read. - Weekend Australian'He can turn even the most innocuous of descriptions into emotive works of art.' - Herald Sun John Connolly is the new Stephen King. The ma can really write, he understands how ordinary people go bad, and he s a master of that brand of deliciously suspenseful horror that thrills with every turn of the page. - The Age'Connolly [has] fine gifts for evocative descriptions, memorable characters and superb spooky moments. The writing is almost lyrical at times and Connolly generates a sense of foreboding in even the simplest descriptions.' - Canberra TimesPraise for THE WHISPERERS:'This is one of Connolly's darker, scarier novels, all the more effective for the way the supernatural elements arise organically out of the realistic detail' - GuardianConnolly subtly combines the supernatural with the traditional crime story to superb effect. And in Herod . . . he may have created his creepiest villain yet. - SunAnother creepy thriller from a modern master - Daily Mirror
