Lecter eats Langdon in Marlowes office.
I have not read this particular genre before but it was a cracking first read of a John Connolly book. Part serial killer thriller, part detective noir and part supernatural mystery but with just the right touch of humour and a freshness to the prose to keep you listening. Imagine Silence of the lambs meets the Da Vinci code with the mystery untangled by Raymond Chandler after a night watching the Omen.
Not only does John Connollys story entertain but Jeff Harding as the narrator does an excellent job. I feel he struggled in one or two places with pronunciation but overall he brought the book to life.

Probably my favourite Charlie Parker novel. A fine selection of characters, humour, rich language with the recurring undercurrent becoming more clear. I love the hints of the eternal struggle between good and evil manifested in the corporeal plane.
The disintegration of Charlie's marriage at first seems a little cliched but as things develop cliched is not what it is.
Once against wonderfully read by Jeff Harding. Thanks Jeff
