The Woman in the Woods - Charlie Parker Thriller (Hardback)John Connolly (author)
A dead woman and a missing baby put iconic detective Charlie Parker in the path of a relentless killer in this latest nailbiting series novel from the masterful pen of John Connolly.
It is spring, and the semi-preserved body of a young Jewish woman is discovered buried in the Maine woods. It is clear that she gave birth shortly before her death.
But there is no sign of a baby.
Private detective Charlie Parker is engaged by the lawyer Moxie Castin to shadow the police investigation and find the infant, but Parker is not the only searcher. Someone else is following the trail left by the woman, someone with an interest in more than a missing child, someone prepared to leave bodies in his wake...The Charlie Parker series debuted in 2009 with Every Dead Thing and has subsequently proved a real staple with our crime-buying customers. Across the novels that have followed, Connolly has dug ever-deeper into Parker’s psyche, creating a truly rounded, sympathetic anti-hero, battling an increasingly dark and complex world.
