The Wrath of Angels: A Charlie Parker Thriller Audiobook

The Wrath of Angels: A Charlie Parker Thriller

Author: John Connolly Narrator: Jay Snyder Release Date: January 2013

In the depths of the Maine woods, the wreckage of a plane is discovered. There are no bodies, and no such plane has ever been reported missing, but men both good and evil have been seeking it for a long, long time. What the wreckage conceals is more important than money. It is power: a list of names, a record of those who have struck a deal with the devil. Now a battle is about to commence between those who want the list to remain secret and those for whom it represents a crucial weapon in the struggle against the forces of darkness. The race to secure the prize draws in private detective Charlie Parker, a man who knows more than most about the nature of the terrible evil that seeks to impose itself on the world, and who fears that his own name may be on the list. It lures others, too: a beautiful, scarred woman with a taste for killing; a silent child who remembers his own death; and a serial killer known as the Collector, who sees in the list new lambs for his slaughter. But as the rival forces descend

The White Road: A Thriller

Author: John Connolly Narrator: Paul Birchard Release Date: December 2014

In South Carolina, a young black man faces the death penalty for the rape and murder of Marianne Larousse, daughter of one of the wealthiest men in the state. It's a case that nobody wants to touch, a case with its roots in old evil, and old evil is private detective Charlie Parker's speciality. But Parker is about to enter a living nightmare, a red dreamscape haunted by the murderous spectre of a hooded woman, by a black car waiting for a passenger that never comes, and by the complicity of both friends and enemies in the events surrounding Marianne Larousse's death. This is not an investigation. This is a descent into the abyss, a confrontation with dark forces that threaten all that Parker holds dear: his lover, his unborn child, even his soul... For in a prison cell far to the north, an old adversary is about to take his revenge on Charlie Parker, its instruments the very men that Parker is hunting, and a strange, hunched creature that keeps its own secrets buried by a riverbank: the undiscovered killer Cyrus Nairn. Soon, all of these figures will face a final reckoning in southern swamps and northern forests, in distant locations linked by a single thread, a place where the paths of the living and the dead converge. A place known only as the White Road.

The Infernals: A Novel Audiobook

The Infernals: A Novel

Author: John Connolly Narrator: Tim Gerard Reynolds Release Date: October 2011

From New York Times bestselling author John Connolly, a wonderfully strange and brilliant novel about a boy, his dog, and their struggle to escape the wrath of demons. Young Samuel Johnson is in trouble. Not only is his eyesight so poor that he mistakenly asks out a letter box on a date, but an angry demon is seeking revenge for Samuel's part in foiling the invasion of Earth by the forces of evil. It wants to get its claws on Samuel, and when Samuel and his faithful dachshund, Boswell, are pulled through a portal into the dark realm, the home of the Infernals, it gets its chance. But catching Samuel is not going to be easy, for the Infernals have not reckoned on the bravery and cleverness of a boy and his dog, or the loyalty of Samuel's friend, the hapless demon Nurd, or the presence of two clueless policemen and the unlucky, if cheerfully optimistic, driver of an ice-cream van. Most of all, no one has planned on the intervention of an unexpected band of little men, for Samuel and Boswell are not the only inhabitants of Earth who have found themselves in the underworld. If you thought demons were frightening, just wait until you meet Mr. Merryweather's Elves. . . .

The Gates Audiobook

The Gates

Author: John Connolly Narrator: Jonathan Cake Release Date: October 2009

Young Samuel Johnson and his dachshund Boswell are trying to show initiative by trick-or-treating a full three days before Halloween. Which is how they come to witness strange goings-on at 666 Crowley Avenue. The Abernathys don't mean any harm by their flirtation with the underworld. But when they unknowingly call forth Satan himself, they create a gap in the universe. A gap which holds a pair of enormous gates-the gates to Hell. And there are some pretty terrifying beings just itching to get out...  Can one small boy defeat evil? Can he harness the power of science, faith and love to save the world as we know it?  Bursting with imagination and impossible to put down, The Gates is about the pull between good and evil, physics and fantasy. It is about a quirky and eccentric boy who is impossible not to love, and the unlikely cast of characters who give him the strength to stand up to a demonic power. Like Mark Haddon's The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, The Gates manages to recreate for grownups that magical and scary world of childhood that we've all left behind but so love to visit.

The Creeps: A Samuel Johnson Tale Audiobook

The Creeps: A Samuel Johnson Tale

Author: John Connolly Narrator: Tim Reynolds Release Date: October 2013

In this clever and quirky follow-up to THE GATES and THE INFERNALS, Samuel's life seems to have finally settled—after all, he’s still got the company of his faithful dachshund Boswell and bumbling demon friend Nurd, has foiled the forces of hell not once, but twice, and he’s finally gone on a date with the lovely Lucy Highmore, to boot. But things in Biddlecombe rarely run smoothly for long. Certain scientists’ experiments have captured the attention of dark forces even more threatening than the Great Malevolence, and they seem to be converging on Samuel’s small town. When a new toy shop’s opening goes terrifyingly awry, one young boy must join his ragtag band of friends to face down the hordes of darkness, the numbers of which include: an optimistic and rather gelatinous messenger of doom, a girl with an unnatural fondness for spiders, highly flammable unfriendly elves, and eyes that follow you around the room…literally. The final installment of John Connolly’s wholly original and creepily imaginative Samuel Johnson Tales, THE CREEPS is humorous horror for anyone who enjoys fiction at its best.
