  1. The Book of Lost Things

    Posted Mar 11th 2012, 12:00am

    ... James Kidd The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly (read by Nick Rawlinson) Hodder and Stoughton (audiobook) John Connolly's Charlie Parker mysteries are as good as crime fiction gets right now. But I had not read his 2006 story for younger readers until this newly released audiobook download. The story is set in the second world war, and follows 12-year-old ...

  2. The Burning Soul

    Posted Oct 09th 2011, 12:00am

    ... James Kidd The Burning Soul by John Connolly Hodder and Stoughton (e-book) I've said it once, and I'll say it again: John Connolly's series of crime novels starring Charlie Parker is simply the best. Mixing lyrical prose, complex plots, well-formed characters and a whiff of something other-worldly, the stories are by turns addictive, funny, and scary, and getting ...

  3. The Whisperers

    Posted Jan 09th 2011, 12:00am by James Kidd

    ... James Kidd The Whisperers by John Connolly Hodder and Stoughton, HK$104 After nine novels, John Connolly's Charlie Parker mysteries get better and better. Mixing clever thrillers with splashes of other-worldly horror, the plots are grounded in reality but always have somewhere dark and weird to go.

    ... James Kidd The Reapers by John Connolly Hodder & Stoughton, HK$57 John Connolly's crime novels starring Maine private detective Charlie Parker are quite possibly the best crime novels in the world. Scary, moving and addictive, they are distinguished by the atmospheric prose and the depth of the characterisations. Increasingly, this has extended to bit-part players ...

  5. The Unquiet

    Posted Jan 20th 2008, 12:00am by James Kidd

    ... James Kidd The Unquiet by John Connolly Hodder & Stoughton, HK$115 The Unquiet is the sixth instalment in Irish writer John Connolly's increasingly impressive and unsettling series of crime novels. The term 'crime novel' hardly does justice to the heady brew of genres Connolly serves. While each episode centres on Maine private eye Charlie Parker, his ...

  6. The Reapers

    Posted May 18th 2008, 12:00am by James Kidd

    ... James Kidd The Reapers by John Connolly Hodder & Stoughton, HK$240 Spin-offs tend to have a bad name in popular culture. For every Frasier, there's a corresponding Joey. For every Angel, there's The Michael Richards Show. Michael Richards had a show? Precisely my point. So John Connolly's decision to interrupt his superb series of Charlie Parker horror-detective ...

    ... Nick Ryan The Unquiet by John Connolly Hodder & Stoughton, HK$247 An Irishman through and through, John Connolly sets almost all his novels in rural Maine, in northeastern America.
