#SRC2017 Book Spotlight: A Game of Ghosts by John Connolly

Title: A Game of Ghosts
Author: John Connolly
Series: Charlie Parker, #15
Published: July 2017, Atria/Emily Bestler Books
Format: Hardcover, 464 books
Internationally bestselling author John Connolly returns with another “superb fusion of noir and the supernatural” (My Bookish Ways) in this latest thriller in his gripping Charlie Parker series.

It is deep winter and the darkness is unending. A private detective named Jaycob Eklund has vanished and Charlie Parker is assigned 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 is 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...

What readers are saying: 

"Connolly creates complicated plots that never unravel. He's just that good."--Kirkus Reviews

"Terrifying."--Publishers Weekly

"Leave it to No. 1 internationally bestselling author John Connolly to deliver a flawless and highly suspenseful cocktail of FBI investigations, mysterious disappearances, and a dark ghost-ridden empire."--Popsugar

“There are a few authors whose novels are my own personal equivalent to comfort food. Stephen King is one; John Connolly is another.”--Michael Patrick Hicks Reviews

"The beauty of John Connolly's Charlie Parker novels is how the characters continue to evolve."--The Jacksonville Times

"The Charlie Parker series is my favorite series of all time. In any genre. Perhaps because it doesn't fit neatly into any one genre. It's gritty crime novels with supernatural elements and a mystery that spans across the entire series."--Cynthia's On Pens and Needles
