The Wolf in Winter Synopsis

The community of Prosperous, Maine, has always thrived when others have suffered. Its inhabitants are wealthy, its children's future secure. It shuns outsiders. It guards its own. The death of a homeless man and the disappearance of his daughter draw the haunted, lethal private investigator Charlie Parker to Prosperous. Parker is a dangerous man, driven by compassion, by rage, and by the desire for vengeance. In him the town and its protectors sense a threat graver than any they have faced in their long history, and in the comfortable, sheltered inhabitants of a small Maine town, Parker will encounter his most vicious opponents yet. Charlie Parker has been marked to die so that Prosperous may survive.

The Good Book Guide Review

This is typically irresistible, Connolly tackling customary themes of redemption and a bitter clash between good and evil. As ever, he proves totally adept at creating American locales with the skill of a native writer, and his best writing concerning his central character is always conjured when Charlie Parker is at the end of his tether – very much the case here. As the lies and betrayal are stripped away in a dangerous community called ‘Prosperous’, the reader is taken into a grim but exhilarating nightmare world.

The Wolf in Winter Press Reviews

'The finest crime series currently in existence' Independent on Sunday

 

'Superb ... this thriller underlines just how fine a writer Connolly has become' Daily Mail

 

'[What] is so impressive [is] the fact that he's able to work poetic language into the thriller format ... You may think at times you are reading a literary novel but then Connolly will remind you he's just as adept at the violent strategies of the thriller. Either way you will be left shaken by the experience.' Daily Express

 

'Connolly's writing is poetic, mystical - and almost impossible to put down' Woman & Home

 

'Skilful at humour and building suspense, Connolly's writing is also poignant and at times downright beautiful' Sunday Business Post

 

'Few thriller writers can create a sense of menace and evil as deftly as Connolly does. Compelling.' Irish Independent
