The only downside is that this is my first John Connolly and I struggled with his recurring characters aside from detective Charlie Parker. Louis and Angel are Parker’s close friends and allies in combat.

But that is the nature of revenge. The only downside is that this is my first John Connolly and I struggled with his recurring characters aside from detective Charlie Parker. They are an unlikely couple whose quibbles and good humor are sometimes the source of comic relief.

All John Connolly fans know to expect the unexpected. High in his attic bedroom, twelve-year-old David mourns the death of his mother, with only the books on his shelf for company

All John Connolly fans know to expect the unexpected. He is a master of the supernatural, the dark twist, the creak of a door in the dark, of all creatures sinister. Connolly’s novels have been bestsellers world-wide. High in his attic bedroom, twelve-year-old David mourns the death of his mother, with only the books on his shelf for company. But those books have begun to whisper to him in the darkness. Angry and alone, he takes refuge in his imagination and soon finds that reality and fantasy have begun to meld.

But that is the nature of revenge. It escalates. It cannot be controlled. One hurt invites another, on and on until the original injury is all but forgotten in the chaos of what follows.

John Connolly's originality and talent for storytelling have quickly made him one of today's preeminent thriller writers. Now, in The Unquiet, private detective Charlie Parker returns to untangle a horrifying story of betrayal, unclean desires, and murder -- a story of never-ending evil whose conclusion is not yet written.

Daniel Clay, a once-respected psychiatrist, has gone missing. His daughter insists that he killed himself after allegations surfaced that he had betrayed his patients to foul and evil men -- but when a killer obsessed with uncovering the truth behind his own daughter's disappearance comes seeking revenge, long-forgotten secrets begin to emerge. Hired by Dr. Clay's daughter to protect her from the predator on the loose, tortured and ingenious private detective Charlie Parker finds himself trapped between those who want the truth to be revealed and those who will go to any length to keep it hidden.

John Connolly masterfully intertwines secret lives and secret sins with the violence that so often lies beneath the surface of the honeycomb world in this gripping page-turner. Fast-paced, hypnotic, and elegantly written, The Unquiet is John Connolly at his chilling best.

In The Unquiet, private detective Charlie Parker is retained by Rebecca Clay to scare off a mysterious stalker asking questions about the whereabouts of Rebecca's father, Daniel Clay, who disappeared in disgrace after a child sex abuse scandal some years earlier. Parker takes the job only to find himself immersed in a world of violence, deceit, and a conspiracy known as "The Project" that has been ongoing for decades. Parker's own torment over the loss of his wife and daughter once again play a large role in the book, and there is a significant supernatural thread woven throughout. Connolly's prose is, as always, mesmerizing, and lends itself well to audio -- particularly as read by narrator George Guidall, who captures Parker's melancholy and dry wit well.

Though the novel held my attention throughout and Connolly stands head and shoulders above most mystery/thriller writers out there today, there were definitely times when it felt as though the author had taken on a bit too much with this plot. The haunting story of Gilead, Maine, would have made for a compelling enough backdrop without bringing in supernatural shadow figures or, particularly, the Russian mob... Parker's own tormented ruminations about his family combined with the inherent darkness of the plot itself make this a weighty read that ultimately isn't my favorite in the series. All that said, however, Connolly remains a favorite author of mine, and a less-than-par novel by him is still, in this reviewer's opinion, far superior to the majority of bestselling thrillers on the market today.

If you've never read a Charlie Parker novel, I urge you to quickly open up a search page for Amazon (or run to your fave bookstore, whichever is your preference) and begin reading. I read many books each year, but few stand out in my memory like the Parker novels.

That said, I must admit that the last one seemed a bit of departure to me, with its much broader scope and its heavy-duty philosophical and historical bent. I enjoyed it tremendously, but I enjoyed this one even more because it's much more like the earlier ones I loved so much.

We begin this book with Parker separated from Rachel and Sam, a separation that seems to be inching towards permanence, and one that causes Parker great pain but about which he feels relatively powerless, I think. What separates him from Rachel is something that he can't immediately control or maybe even fully understand because doing so would involve digging very deeply into his own psyche.

In this novel, Parker's forced to confront that psyche, the way his own decisions have led to his isolation from some of the people he loves best, from sanity, even. The ghosts of his dead first wife and daughter continue to haunt him, but his understanding of that haunting changes. I won't give away any major plot points here, but I will tell you that it's good to see Parker becoming more self-aware, not just in the sense that he knows he's flawed but in the sense that he has some control over how his experiences shape him and follow him into his future.

Angel and Louis show up, which is a good thing, as I like them both as characters. They're funny even in their cold-blooded murderous moments. But they're also human, and it's good to see them covering Parker's back as they always do.

The Collector returns, and I must admit to being enthralled by this character as well. He serves both as a catalyst for Parker's increased self-awareness and for Parker's self-doubts and even self-loathing. He also helps move the plot along in a logical and compelling way.

Other characters continue to guide the reader over complex psychological terrain. If you thought Louis and Angel were studies in contrasts and grey areas, wait until you encounter Merrick here. This man, a killer who carries with him the reek of the abattoir, has a moral code that makes it hard to consider him the bad guy that he is. So, too, the Collector. You want to run screaming in the opposite direction at the same time that you are thinking, "dammit, I kind of. . .GET where he's coming from."

The themes of child sexual abuse and adults' inability to confront the damage they inflict on children in order to serve their own twisted agendas are as compelling as always, especially when Mr. Connolly weaves in history and the backgrounds of his characters to make more powerful and intriguing connections.

I've been told that consistently rating Mr. Connolly's work with 5 stars may look as though I can't rate very objectively, but here's the thing: Mr. Connolly's writing, in particular the Parker series, is some of the best I've ever read, and so far there's been not one major misstep on the writer's part. I continue to enjoy reading about Charlie, laughing at his wit, learning more about his circle of friends and defenders, and witnessing his struggle to achieve some lasting level of happiness. Perhaps it's that last one most of all that always makes me wait with great anticipation for the next book in the series.

And again John Connolly delivers a masterpiece. I am not very partial to supernatural books, but there is an exception for everything. His books are above all beautifully written with sharp plots and comfortable mixture of poetry and smart wit. Reading his novels is never just a pastime. These marvelous books touch you in unexpected ways, scare you, make you laugh, and frankly quite often you find yourself brushing surprising tear from your cheek. Perhaps these broken people remind you of your own dents and bruises. Such master, such an artist.
