Chaos and murder arrive in Charlie Parker’s hometown of Portland, Maine, with two connected crimes in the latest novel in #1 nationally bestselling author John Connolly’s “flawless and highly suspenseful” (PopSugar) series.
New York Times bestselling author John Connolly pits Parker against two separate—but vitally connected—investigations, which prove to be among the most complicated of his entire career in this “must-read for the author’s fans and a good introduction to the series for newbie” (Booklist).
In The Sisters Strange, criminal Raum Buker arrives in Portland, only for a shocking act of theft to threaten not only his own existence but those of his former lovers—the enigmatic sisters Strange.
And in the title novel, The Furies, Parker must protect two women under threat as Portland shuts down in the face of a global pandemic. But it may be that those clients are more capable of taking care of themselves than anyone could have imagined.
John Connolly is the author of the #1 internationally bestselling Charlie Parker thrillers series, the supernatural collection Nocturnes, the Samuel Johnson Trilogy for younger readers, and (with Jennifer Ridyard) the Chronicles of the Invaders series. He lives in Dublin, Ireland. For more information, see his website at JohnConnollyBooks.com, or follow him on Twitter @JConnollyBooks.
"Jeff Harding clearly shows the passion he has for narration with this production, which includes two novels. In Portland, Maine, private investigator Charlie Parker is surrounded by criminals and supernatural forces. The plots are separate, though several of the characters are in both storylines. The first work centers around stolen coins, while the second revolves around a pair of criminals who are extorting a woman whose young daughter has died. The characters invite intriguing personalities, and Harding delivers with unique voices. It seems like most of the folks in both stories are evil, and Harding shapes them with the demonic, harsh, or impatient voices they deserve. This is for those who like their thrillers with a dose of noir and/or the supernatural."
