Publisher's Summary

Jerome Burnel was once a hero. He intervened to prevent multiple killings and in doing so damned himself. His life was torn apart. He was imprisoned, brutalized.
But in his final days, with the hunters circling, he tells his story to private detective Charlie Parker. He speaks of the girl who was marked for death but was saved; of the ones who tormented him and an entity that hides in a ruined stockade.
Parker is not like other men. He died and was reborn. He is ready to wage war. Now he will descend upon a strange, isolated community called the Cut and face down a force of men who rule by terror, intimidation and murder. All in the name of the being they serve. All in the name of the Dead King.

John Connolly at his best

I have been a fan of John Connolly since I read his first book. His Charlie Parker novels never fail to keep your interest with interesting plots, believable characters and fascinating background information. They are crime fiction at its best and I love the darker elements which are strung through the plots. This latest book does not disappoint and upholds the tradition of the series. I would recommend this book to anyone (along with the rest of the series) who likes a good well thought out and well written book, which keeps you on the edge of your seat, and just when you think you have things sorted, twists and gets you going again. This is an exceptional book, in an exceptional series.
