Dark Hollow Summary


Dark Hollow: A Charlie Parker Thriller: 2 by John Connolly

Still raw from the brutal slayings of his wife and daughter, and the events surrounding the capture of their killer, the travelling man, Charlie Parker retreats to the wintry Maine landscape of his childhood. By following in the steps of his beloved grandfather, Parker hopes to heal his spirit and get through the bitter anniversary of Jennifer and Susan's murder. But the echoes of the past that await him are not all benign. In a gruesome re-enactment of Bird's own nightmares, another young woman is killed with her child and his brief involvement in their lives impels Parker to hunt their vicious murderer. As the death toll mounts, Parker comes to realise that the true answer to the puzzle lies thirty years in the past, in a tree with strange fruit, in his own grandfather's history, and in the perverted desires of a monster incarnate - Caleb Kyle.

Dark Hollow Reviews


'Classic American detective fiction ... and of a very high order' -- Bernard Cornwell, Mail on Sunday 'Connolly's evocative prose and sharp one-liners make it oddly akin to poetry' -- Independent 'Despite the gore, this second novel is subtler and more complex than the best-selling EVERY DEAD THING. Connolly's lyrical language and occasional mystical passages are reminiscent of James Lee Burke. His hero ... is developing into a credible and sympathetic personality' -- Sunday Telegraph '... a dark sense of foreboding from the opening pages should will and chill Connolly's considerable fan-base through this second novel at great pace... Killer imagery is his secret weapon' -- Sunday Business Post, Dublin 'DARK HOLLOW is a frightening, disturbing and brutal tale interspersed with great moments of dark humour' -- Yorkshire Evening Press 'Connolly is not an easy author to pigeonhole. He is his own man: an original and exuberant story-teller, as he proves once more with this enjoyable book' -- Scotland on Sunday 'Atmospheric, compulsive and deeply upsetting, [DARK HOLLOW] mark(s) the appearance of a writer whose star is most definitely in the ascendancy' -- Manchester Metro
