The thrilling new dark supernatural Charlie Parker novel, 11th in the series, from bestselling author John Connolly. For fans of the series the dark shadowy 'Collector' introduced in Nocturnes (book 5 in the series) also makes a reappearance as good and evil battle over a list of names of people who have struck a deal with the devil!

The Wrath of Angels Synopsis

In the depths of the Maine woods, the wreckage of an aeroplane is discovered. There are no bodies. No such plane has ever been reported missing, but men both good and evil have been seeking it for a long, long time. Hidden in the plane is 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 who believe that 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. But as the rival forces descend upon this northern state, the woods prepare to meet them, for the forest depths hide other secrets. Someone has survived the crash. Some thing has survived the crash. And it is waiting ...

The Wrath of Angels Press Reviews

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

 

'Haunting, scary and addictive ... the finest crime series currently in existence. As always, the plot marries an ingenious, if recognisable, detective story with something wicked and otherwordly.' -- Independent on Sunday

 

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

 

'Connolly has always managed to deftly juggle the essential elements of genre fiction with his own supernatural flavour and WRATH is no exception ... Connolly has crafted [Parker] so expertly.' -- Hot Press Ireland

 

'With Connolly, good and evil are always too close for comfort' -- Daily Mirror

 

'Connolly returns to page-turning form with his depiction of a moral world at the mercy of epic conspiracy and remorseless, primordial evil' -- The Irish Times

 

'[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

 

'This thriller might just have you grasping for your childhood teddy.' -- Loaded

 

'His latest plot is a clever mixture of quest and chase ... rarely fails to sing' -- Observer

 

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

 

'Ingenious, seriously scary and plausible ... Excellent' -- Sun
