The new thrilling instalment of John Connolly's popular Charlie Parker series.
It is spring, and the mummified body of a young Jewish woman is discovered buried in the Maine woods. It is clear that she gave birth shortly before her death.
But there is no sign of a baby.
Private detective Charlie Parker is engaged by the lawyer Moxie Castin to shadow the police investigation and find the infant, but Parker is not the only searcher. Someone else is following the trail left by the woman, someone with an interest in more than a missing child, someone prepared to leave bodies in his wake.
And in a house by the woods, a toy telephone begins to ring.
For a young boy is about to receive a call from a dead woman....

As one who can't bear fantasy and sci-fi I found the supernatural element to the story really irritating and unnecessary. I wish it had been mentioned in the blurb for the book as then I wouldn't have bought it. Also as another reviewer mentioned, the idea that Louis would burn a vehicle because of a Confederate flag is ridiculous. Otherwise, a good story overall, and as usual, superbly read by Jeff Harding.
