The Killing Kind: A Charlie Parker Thriller: 3 by John Connolly

Did Grace Peltier commit suicide? When a mass grave in northern Maine reveals the final resting place of a religious community that disappeared almost forty years earlier, private detective Charlie Parker, hired to investigate the circumstances of her death, realises that their deaths and the violent passing of Grace Peltier are part of the same mystery, one that has its roots in her family history and in the origins of the shadowy organisation known as the Fellowship.

The Killing Kind Reviews

'The unrivalled master of Maine noir. Menace has never been so seductive.' -- Maxim Jakubowski, Guardian 'As John Connolly plunges ever deeper into the underworld of the damned, the reader, with eyes of slits, must cling on for this brilliantly terrifying ride.' -- Irish Times 'What makes Parker intriguing is precisely that, though a crusader against evil, he has a dark side: he is haunted by the past, his capacity for violence and guilt.' -- Telegraph Magazine 'Connolly's achievement is a literary thriller, charged with menace from beginning to end, taut as it is terrifying.' -- Live Wire 'John Connolly knows how to get you to check the lock on your door before you put the lights out and again before you get into bed.' -- ri-ra 'Arachnophobes should give this novel a wide berth' -- Evening Standard 'Connolly has become the leading commentator on Maine's morbidity' -- Times Play 'Connolly's characters have substance beyond vehicles for horror, and this is what puts him ahead in a crowded genre race' -- What's On (Amazon Books) 'As the body count increases, Connolly introduces a chilling new villain and an age-old legend. Together they'll keep you on the edge of your seat. Don't read it alone! -- Books 'Elias Pudd makes Hannibal Lecter seem like Little Lord Fauntleroy. Gripping, intricately plotted, this is no ordinary thriller... Also becoming more apparent are the depths of this author's psychological acumen, literary skills and prodigious creativity.' -- Publishers Weekly 'Connolly's reflections on evil, the past, and reparation are lyrical and affecting, and his grim fundamentalists send off frissons.' -- Kirkus Reviews 20020602
