“ A ook of Bones ” Written by John Connolly is book seventeen about the exploits of Charlie Parker, a ‘ righter ’ of wrongs, fighting for the better side of good and always battling against evil often with his protectors Angel and Louis.

Quayle believing he had got hold of the complete version of a ook of unspeakable evil called ‘ The Fractured Atlas ’, which would alter the world itself ( not in a bad way).

Read a wonderful review from GR reviewer Char of that particular book here: htt: //www.goodreads.com/review/show ... This giant 707 page hardcover book is the UK edition and the official publishing date is 18 Apr 2019.The book arrived with a book/tote bag displaying " Parker Private Investigations " and picturing an angel conquering a demon on one side and a human holding the skin sack of a vanquished opponent on the other.

Quayle and Mors have been torturing and killing people to locate the Atlas 's missing pages, and have even arranged for unrelated murders to throw the police off their trail.Parker, who 's a consultant for the BI, is on the rail of the evil duo with his colleagues Louis and Angel.

A ifficult ook to review this, even if I hadn ’ t said pretty much every good word available in previous reviews of the series- because there is a thin of end game for a uniqu story arc here that I need to be careful not to spoil- whilst also getting across how utterly brilliant A Book Of Bones is.

Having said that, this novel is my least favorite that I have read in this series.

I know I am in the minority on this one, but I found it to be extremely slow in parts and I wanted to have more scenes with my favorite thing- Parker, Louis and Angel.

Those who have read the book know who and what I am talking about.

Because if Connolly keeps writing, I will keep reading.

I checked out my review for his second ook, and came up empty.

Then I started reading this one, and remembered why I could n't review his last ook.

Man, I 've read flat outright horror, but nothing came close to Mors.

Those deaths were the most harsh and despicable things I 've ever read.

Events from the revious book result in Parker, with Louis and Angel in tow, traveling to London to stop Quayle from putting the final pag of the atlas together.

I was fascinated by Mors and Quayle and the history of the atlas, but could have done without the perspectives from the police -- I was bored with their chapters.

This is John Connolly we are talking about after all.As usual the book is ark, edgy and involves the supernatural.

In A Novel of Bones he is totally unperturbed by the supernatural, disposes of demons with one small action and has Jennifer at his back with information from the differen side.

I will never look at stained glass the same ay again.
