Inhaltsangabe

The Black Angel is not an object. The Black Angel is not a myth. The Black Angel lives. A young woman goes missing from the streets of New York. Those who have taken her believe that nobody cares about her, and that no one will come looking for her. They are wrong. She is 'blood' to the killer Louis, the man who stands at the right hand of private detective Charlie Parker, and Louis will tear apart anyone who stands in the way of his attempts to find her. But as Louis's violent search progresses, Parker comes to realize that the disappearance is part of an older mystery, one that is linked to an ornate church of bones in Eastern Europe, to the slaughter at a French monastery in 1944, and to the quest for a mythical prize that has been sought for centuries by evil men: the Black Angel.

Yet the Black Angel is more than a myth. It is conscious. It dreams. It is alive. And men are not the only creatures that seek it…

What's the story? Couldn't tell ya

I like the Charlie Parker series, I really do. I've read several books in the series, and I usually appreciate its supernatural / metaphysical touches - it gives the detective stories a darker edge.

The Black Angel, however, gives an Old Testament / Occult Tale a detective edge. It starts out with the search for a missing prostitute and veers off into the Old Testament, WWII, medieval history, endless facts about the Sedlec Ossuary, cults, Nazis, etc. until I was so disinterested that I skipped the final 4 hours.

I wanted a Charlie Parker installment and got an Umberto Ecco tribute.

Jeff Harding reads well. He has to impersonate a large cast of characters, so it's probably unavoidable that some of them 'sound' a little annoying.
