New York Times best-selling author John Connolly writes a lyrical, haunting tale that turns to private investigator Charlie Parker's hidden past... and a search that forces him to investigate all that he has ever believed true about his beloved parents - and himself.
Stripped of his license, Parker takes a job in a Portland bar. Alone and directionless, he faces at last a shadow he has lived with since his childhood: what made his father, a respected police officer, apparently shoot dead two unarmed teens and then commit suicide. His quest leads him back to the little New York town where he grew up, to the mysterious history of the NYPD, and to the existence of secret friends and hidden enemies. And waiting in the shadows, as they have been throughout Charlie’s life, are a man and a woman with only one purpose: to bring an end to his very existence.

It's Lou-ee, not Lou-iss
The story, as in all of Connolly's books, is captivating, funny, spooky, gritty, dark, hopeful, and just plain good.
My issue was with the narrator, or more specifically the director, who failed to know that the name of one of the characters is pronounced in a different way than a native English speaker might expect. It's rough to see that whoever directed this didn't even bother to read the other novels in the series or do some research on it. What's worse, though, 8s that the narrator pronounced the name correctly in the book before this one in the series, after having pronounced it incorrectly in the one before that.
It just feels a bit shoddy to me.
Still, great book, and good performance.
