A Game of Ghosts Synopsis

It is deep winter. The darkness is unending. The private detective named Jaycob Eklund has vanished, and Charlie Parker is dispatched to track him down. Parker's employer, Edgar Ross, an agent of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, has his own reasons for wanting Eklund found. Eklund is no ordinary investigator. He is obsessively tracking a series of homicides and disappearances, each linked to reports of hauntings. Now Parker will be drawn into Eklund's world, a realm in which the monstrous Mother rules a crumbling criminal empire, in which men strike bargains with angels, and in which the innocent and guilty alike are pawns in a game of ghosts ...

John Connolly Press Reviews

'Another chapter in the life of Charlie Parker and another fascinating read from the pen of the great John Connolly. Here is an author that seems to be totally in control of his writing and at the top of his game.' Shots

'Once you start this book, make sure you've not got anything else important to do for the next few hours ... The Charlie Parkerbooks have always been a gripping and enthralling read, but this latest one simply won't let you go.' ScifiBulletin

Praise for A TIME OF TORMENT:

'A TIME OF TORMENT is one of the writer's finest achievements ... If you are a John Connolly or Charlie Parker fan, a recommendation for this one is unnecessary - you will be adding it to your bedside table. But, as the saying goes: new readers - start here.' -- Barry Forshaw Independent

'In a consistently excellent series, A TIME OF TORMENT may be the best yet ... a dizzying, yet assured, ride to hell and back ... It is a testimony to Connolly's brilliance. Sunday Herald Connolly provides plenty of tension and a genuinely creepy atmosphere that keeps you turning the page to find out what happens next.' Crime Scene

'Connolly's prose is hypnotic and never lets you go. I am saddened that I will have to wait a while for the next book as Connolly is at the top of his form and has me completely hooked. An absolute must-read.' Shots
