A Book of Bones: A Thriller
A woman’s corpse is found in a refrigerator in the unforgiving deserts of southern Arizona. The body bears striking resemblance to a murderer sought by the FBI and other authorities. Enter Charlie Parker. Parker is currently serving as a witness against two pederasts in Houston when the Feds beckon him to the Mexican border. Parker assists in the questioning of potential witnesses and soon learns the body is a decoy. The suspect, named Mors, and her boss/associate Quayle have fled the country. But the danger they represent to Parker and others has not abated. Quayle is hunting for the elusive pages of an Atlas, a book of religious bearing, verging on apocalyptic. Quayle will stop at nothing to obtain the lost pages while ordering murders that will bring forth armageddon. Dueling killers are operating in London, their victims left with a clue that points to hate crimes. Parker and his loyal friends seek to foil Quayle and Mors and end their reign of terror. But have they met their match?
A Book of Bones may be John Connolly’s finest work yet in his Charlie Parker saga. His latest work is composed of a multi-pronged narrative culling together diverse characters and their journeys, inevitably meeting at a fiery ground zero. Connolly weaves a rich tapestry of beauty in painting the scenery while waiting to spring the inevitable horror he has become known for. A+
