I purchased and read Connolly's The Book of Lost Things first, and though I had rather high expectations for his debut novel, despite the difference in genre, I was not at all disappointed. While the mystery was not impossible to figure out, the tension and suspense remained throughout the novel, so that I was curious to see how it all played out.
The book (obviously) was vastly different, but still highly enjoyable. The writing was strong, and the book was utterly absorbing, nearly impossible to put down. I can't believe how quickly Connolly has jumped into being one of my favorite authors, and definitely my best discovery of 2008. All in all, I loved reading this book.

This author is not for me, when you get to 100 pages and it is still just getting started and you are bored with all the description, etc. then it is time to move on.

I enjoyed this book from the start. It is a bit wordy, but you can really see every thing from the author's point of view. I did not figure out who the killer was till the end, I was very suprised. This story made me want to visit New Orleans.

John Connolly superbly taps into the tortured mind and gritty world of former NYPD dective Charlie "Bird" Parker, tormented by the brutal, unsolved murders of his wife and young daughter. Driven by visions of the dead, Parker tracks a serial killer from New York City to the American South, and finds his buried instincts - for love, survival, and, ultimately, for killing - awakening as he confronts a monster beyond imagining...
