The Woman in the Woods (Charlie Parker #16) Reviews
After a year of anticipation the book did arrive and it took me some willpower to not drop everything I was doing and reading to start reading the new installment of this Charlie Parker novel. Which is quite a compliment if the 16th book in a series is that good and does not disappoint and actually makes you want to read the next book.
John Connolly has written & created an interesting series starring PI Charlie Parker whose daughters look after him, not unlike his friends Louis & Angel a ...more

Enjoyed this with some Irish pancakes on Shrove Tuesday and it was all the topping and filing I needed!
John's writing is short sharp and you can imagine he flicks his pen off to the side when he writes some of these sentences - such is the effect they have on the reader like me. I gasped, cheered and high fived ( as the grave of the women is revealed in very short chapters) before settling in again for the next chapter.
Some darn fine plot and twists here. Fr ...more
When a tree falls in the Great North Woods, revealing the mummified body of a woman who apparently died in childbirth, it does more than make a sound.....it tolls a death knell whose echoes reach far beyond the poor soul nestled in it's roots.
The discovery of the body moves lawyer Moxie Castin to an act of decency...hiring Charlie Parker to discover who this woman was, and to find her child.
Not the simplest of assignments, but Charlie could use something to occupy his mind, as Angel lies fightin ...more
"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..."
I'm grateful to the publisher for an advance copy of The Woman in the Woods.
I'm a latecomer to Connolly's Charlie Parker thrillers, having read my first, A Game of Ghosts, last year, and thoroughly enjoyed it. I discovered that there's a good back catalogue of these books which - for now - I'm saving ...more
Hi guys hope you are all well.
Having followed Charlie and associates throughout each and every escapade, I must admit to being in disagreement with a number of the 5* reviews. the previous two books appeared to be leading towards Charlie’s demise and his daughter Sam taking the family mantle of otherworldly champion of the lost.
Don’t get me wrong I’m so pleased Charlie has re-established himself within this volume but where are the other characters we know and love Angel (cancer issues have him ...more
Surely this is one of the best crime series in existence. I've been a fan for too long to be able to think objectively about the Charlie Parker books, so four stars, brilliant as usual.
Jamas me habia sentido tan decepcionado con un libro, será porque es mi querido y entrañable amigo el autor? enserio no puedo. Un libro largo, absurdo, aguado, enserio perdí la fe.
Book 16, and to be honest, not the best of the series.
A woman’s body has been found in the woods, and it appears that she died during child birth. There's no body of a child though. What there is though, is a carving of a star of David on a nearby tree. That’s enough to get Moxie involved who hires Charlie to look into it.
While there’s a fair amount of actual detective work in it, you know there’s going to be some weird stuff going on. The child is getting tracked by a mysterious Englishman, Q ...more
