"Internationally bestselling author John Connolly returns with another "superb fusion of noir and the supernatural" (My Bookish Ways) in this latest thriller in his gripping Charlie Parker series. It is deep winter and the darkness is unending. A private detective named Jaycob Eklund has vanished and Charlie Parker is assigned to track him down. Parker's employer, Edgar Ross, an agent of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, has his own reasons for wanting Eklund found. Eklund is no ordinary investigator--he is obsessively tracking a series of homicides and disappearances, each linked to reports of hauntings. Now Parker is drawn into Eklund's world: a realm in which the monstrous Mother rules a crumbling criminal empire, in which men strike bargains with angels, and in which the innocent and guilty alike are pawns in a game of ghosts."-- Provided by publisher.

Very interesting novel. Lots of spookiness and world building and things lurking beyond mortal sight... perhaps a little too much. There were quite a few plot threads and they didn't all quite connect up. However, I read this in consideration for a book list and it because I'd read the rest of the series. It would probably have felt more coherent if I had all the backstory of fourteen other books! I do plan to to go back and read them. So, in the end, a good story with a standalone mystery in it, but perhaps more satisfying if read as part of the larger series.

The basic storyline was too much of a stretch for me! Not one of his better novels.

Normally I do not like books about the supernatural or spirits. I read this one because I liked another book he had written. While the subject matter of this novel was not in the genre I normally read, I did finish the book. Did not get the pleasure or entertainment I normally get from reading. Just ok will not recommend this book to friends.
