I found "Dark Hollow" filled with suspense and hard to put down. The author, John Connolly, really has 2 stories going on in this book. There's mystery, suspense, well rounded characters, a twisting plot and a likable main character. Charlie Parker is a somewhat psychic private detective who manages to pursue cases of some of the most wicked characters in literature. The wicked person here is Caleb Kyle, a scary sadist whose eyes are filled with evil. The plot is intricate but not too much. Enough to enjoy the surprises along the way as Charlie and friends, Angel and Louis, battle the mob, ignorant rednecks and assassins.

Really enjoyed this book - a former police detective, now a PI in Maine, becomes involved in a twisted set of crimes in far northern Maine -the Dark Hollow of the title. He is a person haunted by a number of ghosts - that of his murdered wife and child as well as others from the past and present, and that drives the plot. The writing grabbed me right from the beginning, and the constant plot turns kept me reading eagerly. I could really "see" the action as if it were a movie. In fact, I think this would make a fine movie! The only reason I did not give it 5 stars was that the characters' spoken dialog was a tiny bit trite.

Not bad. A little predictable, though.
