Happy pub day to John Connolly’s new book 𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐅𝐮𝐫𝐢𝐞𝐬, the latest addition to his long running Charlie Parker series. Thank you Simon & Schuster for the gifted copy 

This book is really two interconnected novellas. Even though this is the 20th book in the series featuring Portland, Maine PI Charlie Parker, it’s the first one I’ve read. I’ve know about the series but always shied away because the books have a supernatural component. And usually I like my thrillers paranormal-free. I decided to give this one a try and was intrigued when the first story opened with a brutal crime committed in Athens, PA - a location not too far from me. That certainly grabbed my interest. The story soon shifted to Portland, where the return of Raum Buker, a nasty criminal, puts the lives of two sisters in jeopardy. In the second story, Charlie must protect two women who face different threats as Covid becomes a global pandemic. 

Both stories did have a paranormal element and I ended up enjoying them. I had no trouble jumping into the series at book 20. There was enough backstory info to give me a sense of the kind of guy Charlie is and the kinds of cases he takes on. Narrator Jeff Harding did a fantastic job. His narration reminded me of a hard boiled detective from a 1940s noir movie. It’s just the right tone for this atmospheric thriller. I really enjoyed this one and it’s perfect if you’re in the mood for a supernatural thriller this spooky season. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

QOTD: how’s the weather in your corner of the world? It’s a beautiful warm and sunny day here and I’m loving it.
