Synopses & Reviews
Former NYPD detective Charlie Parker, tormented by the brutal, unsolved murders of his wife and young daughter and driven by visions of the dead, tracks a serial killer from New York City to the American South. There, in the dark streets of New Orleans and the deadly moonlit bayous, Charlie finds his buried instincts -- for love, survival, and, ultimately, for killing -- reawakening as he confronts a monster beyond all imagining.
[A] darkly ingenious debut novel.
The Saturday Times
Every Dead Thing is intelligent, deep, and literate, and it is difficult to believe that this is John Connolly's first novel, so confident is the writing...Buy it and be scared.
San Francisco Examiner
A stunner...as riveting and chilling as The Silence of the Lambs.
Driven by visions of the dead, former NYPD detective Charlie Bird Parker tracks a serial killer from New York City to the American South--and confronts a monster beyond his imagining. Reissue.
