The Reapers Summary


The Reapers: A Charlie Parker Thriller: 7 by John Connolly

They are the Reapers, the elite among killers. Men so terrifying that their names are mentioned only in whispers. The assassin Louis is one of them. But now Louis, and his partner, Angel, are themselves targets. And there is no shortage of suspects. A wealthy recluse sends them north to a town that no longer exists on a map. A town ruled by a man with very personal reasons for wanting Louis' blood spilt. There they find themselves trapped, isolated, and at the mercy of a killer feared above all others: the assassin of assassins, Bliss. Thanks to former detective Charlie Parker, help is on its way. But can Angel and Louis stay alive long enough for it to reach them?

The Reapers Reviews


"* Charlie Parker is back, and on the trail of the assassin of assassins in 'the most purely entertaining novel Connolly has ever written' Irish Times * 'This man's so good, it's terrifying' Marcel Berlins, The Times * John Connolly is the creator of a unique blend of thriller and horror which receives rave reviews every time for his 'lyrical, almost poetic language' Sunday Telegraph * 'Connolly's is a unique talent' - Susanna Yager, Sunday Telegraph * 'It's a must-read for fans of Connolly, offering a rare insight into the background of the slightly dark and dangerous duo who have featured in this series, where death and demons go hand-in-hand.' - Evening Telegraph * 'As ever with Connolly, the macabre narrative is couched in prose that is often allusive and poetic... Refreshingly, Connolly has always resisted repeating himself, and the plot trajectory is strikingly innovative. The Reapers affords unusually bracing doses of Stygian delights.' - Barry Forshaw, Independent * 'Utterly compelling tale of mystery and imagination... A supernatural western set among an elite cadre of samurai-style contract killers and the most purely entertaining novel Connolly has written.' - Irish Times * 'This painstaking recreation of realistic settings sets the former journalist's works of fiction apart from many of his contemporaries.' - Evening Herald * 'Fans of Connolly's work will be aware of Angel and Louis, two shadowy assassins, and this new Charlie Parker novel explores their back-story, set against their encounter with Bliss, the killer of killers.'"
