Pressestimmen

The finest crime series currently in existence Independent on Sunday [What] is so impressive [is] the fact that he's able to work poetic language into the thriller format ... You may think at times you are reading a literary novel but then Connolly will remind you he's just as adept at the violent strategies of the thriller. Either way you will be left shaken by the experience. Daily Express Skilful at humour and building suspense, Connolly's writing is also poignant and at times downright beautiful Sunday Business Post Connolly's writing is poetic, mystical - and almost impossible to put down Woman & Home

Format: Kindle Edition
... One of the most irritating statements of this new - the 12th - thriller featuring the more than disturbing figure of Private Eye Charlie "Bird" Parker.
Who is one of the most complicated heroes in the story of modern crime. In previous books the ambiguity of his "being" has been more and more expanded into the enormous ground of the eternal fight between The Good and The Evil.
Author John Connelly leaves the reader with doubts and hopes about The Sein of the character of this oh so troubled example of a human being.
But - is he even a Human being?
I personnaly have my doubts about this. There are players in the Cosmic Game who do NOT hazard to touch The Detective. Even the Avenger aka The Collector who has a huge cat to skin with "Bird" and his close friends Louis and Angel, is frightened - yes frightened to take his life.
And that fact is a more than disturbing one!
Because The Collector doesn't own a conscience - he IS The Conscience.
Of Good and Bad, the impersonated standard of jury, judge and executioner in personal union - a Three-in-One, You might say.
Which in itself instills a great respect into his motives and means and morals. Morals he absolutely does NOT possess.
A contradiction in itself, You might say.
But there are a lot of those around when it comes to Charlie "Bird" Parker...
Who is on his deadliest mission ever. And a mission it is, because The Detective is driven NOT by filthy lucre but by HIS personal sense of justice.
Justice for the Dead.
And he will face The Grim Reaper himself this time ...

The community of Prosperous/Maine has always thrived when others have suffered. >>The inhabitants are wealthy, and their children's future secure. It doesn't like outsiders. It guards its own.

Die Bücher von John Connollz sind immer sehr spannend und The Wolf in Winter macht da keine ausnahme. Wieder ist der Karakter Charlie Parker unwiederstehlich und bringt das beste aus einer geschichte heraus. Ich watr jetzt schon auf das nächste Buch.

The Best series out there. No doubt. 10. April 2014
Von Liz Wilkins - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Thank you kindly to Ellie Cheele for arranging the copy via Netgalley. You are now one of my favourite people!

The community of Prosperous, Maine has always thrived when others have suffered. Its inhabitants are wealthy, its children’s future secure. It shuns outsiders. It guards its own. And at the heart of the Prosperous lie the ruins of an ancient church, transported stone by stone from England centuries earlier by the founders of the town . . .
Charlie Parker has been marked to die so that Prosperous may survive.

First things first – if you have not yet started this series then LOOK AWAY NOW there may be minor spoilers ahead for previous novels (very minor but still!) and also – on top of that – if you HAVENT read them then why the heck not? Off you go. Every Dead Thing is where you start..

So we come to “The Wolf in Winter”. At the end of the previous book the murky relationship between Charlie and The Collector hit dangerous territory..and life for all my favourite characters was about to get more interesting. And deadly. As we open, the aftershocks of previous events resonate and thats before our Mr Parker comes to the notice of the inhabitants of a town called Prosperous…

I find these books quite difficult to review if I’m honest. When I review Stephen King I often want to shout “JUST READ IT its brilliant what else do you need to know?” And I could easily apply that to all the works of Mr Connolly, most especially this particular series. And this instalment has left me traumatised, desperate for more, completely out of breath and absolutely in awe. Of the writing, of the depth of the mythology he has created here, at the sheer stunning emotional resonance of the people that inhabit that world. I have rarely come across such depth of character – so deep that you really do feel you know them all. I often have the feeling, that should somebody evil do something nasty to me, that Charlie, Louis and Angel would track them to the ends of the earth. That is how real they become during the reading…

Prosperous is a scary place indeed. And once more Charlie and co will encounter the worst that the world has to offer and will not look away. It may be my favourite one yet for pure adrenalin rush – but to get into the plot too deeply is to spoil it indeed and I’m not going to do that. And some of you have a long way to go before you get here..

The supernatural elements aside, there is always more to these than meets the eye, they are terrifically well constructed novels that MUST be read in order to fully appreciate the Russian Doll quality of the the progression…one piece of information leading to the next, past acts echoing through present events..and always right at the heart and soul of it sits Private Detective Charlie Parker. Both his light and his darkness, his morality and his struggle with it. A truly amazing creation surrounded by other truly amazing creations, all making up a truly magnificent reading experience.

I have always said that Stephen King is the best writer out there (for me) and I tag myself as a SK fanatic. Because I am. The Wolf in Winter however means that I am now, officially, a John Connolly fanatic also. No doubt. Does he have an end game in mind for Mr Parker? I don’t want to know lest it destroy me…

Read it. Live it. Love it.

>>The community of Prosperous/Maine has always thrived when others have suffered. The inhabitants are wealthy, and their children's future secure. It doesn't like outsiders. It guards its own. And at the heart of Prosperous lie the ruins of an ancient church, transported stone by stone from England centuries earlier by the founders of the town . . .<<
But after the death of a homeless man and the disappearance of his daughter the haunted and absolutely lethal private investigator Charlie "Bird" Parker makes his appearance at the quiet and somehow isolated town that is Prosperous. With his tenacious efforts and indomitable will, The Detective is a menace to the village, and so Mr Parker has been marked to die - so that Prosperous may survive.
A cult surviving from times when the Earth was young and sacrifices common, will target our hero who has to make a very but very very hard decision in the very very end.

A book that is absolutely worth reading.
Because author John Connolly has a long time ago overstepped the boundaries from common-or-garden crime to The Literature. Where he rightfully belongs.
Enjoy the read!

The 12th Charlie Parker novel (4.5 stars) 10. November 2014
Von TChris - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
A girl named Annie is being held captive in an unfriendly town called Prosperous. Suspecting that his daughter is in trouble but finding himself unwelcome in Prosperous, Annie's homeless father hopes to get help from Charlie Parker. The father is found swinging from a rope before they have a chance to talk.

Prosperous, notable for its old English church that once hosted a now defunct religion, is one of the creepy, incestuous towns that writers of horror and crime novels like to create. The residents of Prosperous share a secret and are hostile to outsiders who might learn its dirty business. John Connolly provides enough background to the town and its people to make it believable but not so much as to slow the story with needless detail.

Connolly weaves the history of the mystic religious sect into a plot that takes Parker to Prosperous as he follows the trail of the homeless man's missing daughter. About halfway into the novel, the story takes a supernatural turn, as Parker novels usually do. The supernatural elements are the least interesting aspect of the story but The Wolf in Winter does have the creepy feeling of a good X-Files episode.

An extended section of the book takes place while Parker is out of action, giving series regulars Ronald Straydeer and the killer couple Louis and Angel a chance to be in the limelight. They are strong characters who easily carry the story. The Collector, a recurring villain in the series, makes an appearance, advancing an ongoing subplot while altering the mission that has recently motivated Louis and Angel.

Connolly writes with unusual sensitivity and compassion about the homeless. They are, in fact, some of the best characters in the book. The bad guys are also described in convincing detail. Some residents of Prosperous are just playing the hands they were dealt while the town's rulers are the embodiment of evil when they aren't behaving like ordinary folk.

Connolly's commentary adds personality to the characters and amusement to the story. A character's reference to readers who take "reading books very seriously without ever understanding how the act could be enjoyable as well" and his flaming condemnation of Look Homeward, Angel were among my favorites. I take reading seriously but if I'm not enjoying a book, I don't finish it. The Wolf in Winter was easy to finish. If I could, I would give it 4 1/2 stars.

As advertised 16. Juni 2014
Von Mark Fitzgerald - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Being a fan of the Charlie Parker series I always expected to enjoy this and wasn't let down. Connolly's writing style has improved with each novel and this is a slick confident offering from an author comfortable with his genre & characters. As a standalone novel TWIW is nothing exceptional and doesn't particularly progress the background story that frame all the Parker novels but it gives just enough hints and glimpses of future storylines to have us counting the days to the next installment.

Downright creepy 28. Oktober 2014
Von Steve White - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I will admit to being a little disappointed in this one. But first, the good stuff..

This is a most excellently written novel. The voices used complement the story without confusion or complexity.
The historical background and references are top notch and give this story just the mysticism that it needs.

Having been the first book that involves this character, I did feel a little behind the curve on some background and character information. Not enough that it made this book hard to decipher but enough that it slowed me down some and perhaps I missed out on some nuances.

Through whatever magic Mr. Connolly has at his disposal, he gave more life into these characters than most fiction stories I have read. I truly felt for these characters and had a sense that their own ideas were actually driving their decisions.

The creepiness factor of this town is palpable. It's almost as creepy as Wayward Pines in those Blake Crouch novels.

So that is a lot of good stuff, now the knock I have against it. The ending of this story really takes a turn, and it doesn't feel right for the rest of the story or the characters either.

I highly recommend you read it yourself. Maybe we'll draw the same conclusion but either way, you'll have read a great story.
