Dark Hollowby John Connolly
Synopses & Reviews
Internationally acclaimed author John Connolly thrilled readers with his debut bestseller, Every Dead Thing. Now he gives a new name to fear with this atmospheric, spine-tingling page-turner.
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 reawakens 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 killer who lurks deep in the dark hollow of Parker's own past...
"[J]ust as grim, hard-edged and compulsively readable as [Connolly's] debut....
"Connolly's honest but brutal characterizations leave the reader with wounds that need stitching. Long, but a strong stride forward." Kirkus Reviews
A masterful second novel from a young Irish writer whose storytelling skills have established him as the strongest new thriller writer since Thomas Harris. Building on the rich imagery, complex plotting, and remarkable characters of Every Dead Thing, Connolly has constructed a tale more menacing and memorable than the last.
Haunted by the murders of his wife and daughter, former NYPD detective Charlie "Bird" Parker returns to his native Maine. But peace is elusive for Charlie as the killings of another mother and child put him on the trail of a murderer with connections deep in Charlie's own past and new evidence arises in the long-ago deaths of his father and grandfather.
