Grievously wounded private detective Charlie Parker investigates a case that has its origins in a Nazi concentration camp during the Second World War.

Broken, but undeterred, private detective Charlie Parker faces the darkest of dark forces in a case with its roots in the second world war, and a concentration camp unlike any other . . .

Recovering from a near-fatal shooting and tormented by memories of a world beyond this one, Parker has retreated to the small Maine town of Boreas to recover. There he befriends a widow named Ruth Winter and her young daughter, Amanda. But Ruth has her secrets. She is hiding from the past, and the forces that threaten her have their origins in the Second World War, in a town called Lubko and a concentration camp unlike any other. Old atrocities are about to be unearthed, and old sinners will kill to hide their sins. Now Parker is about to risk his life to defend a woman he barely knows, one who fears him almost as much as she fears those who are coming for her.

His enemies believe him to be vulnerable. Fearful. Solitary.

But they are wrong. Parker is far from afraid, and far from alone.

For something is emerging from the shadows . . .

MEDIA REVIEWS
Connolly's writing moves at a gallop, and the uncanny touches to this story can raise the hairs on the back of your neck. Technically it's a thriller but actually it does more. * The Times *
Connolly's writing moves at a gallop, and the uncanny touches to this story can raise the hairs on the back of your neck. Technically it's a thriller but actually it does more. * The Times *
A Song of Shadows has it all - poetic writing, dark humour, a dash of the supernatural and a thoroughly chilling plot. Connolly is pure class. * Crime Review *

“Parker Still Packs A Punch!”

This series just goes from strength to strength and if Connolly really was planning for Charlie Parker to still be around as the last battle before the larger war starts it is something special.

“loved this book”

I have been waiting for this to come out in paperback so I could get my hands on it and I wasn't disappointed. There is a different tone to this from the last book, less full on action and more atmosphere which I... More
