In the depths of the Maine woods, the wreckage of an aeroplane is discovered. There are no bodies, and no such plane has ever been reported missing, but men both good and evil have been seeking it for a long, long time. What the wreckage conceals is more important than money: it is power. Hidden in the plane is a list of names, a record of those who have struck a deal with the Devil. Now a battle is about to commence between those who want the list to remain secret and those who believe that it represents a crucial weapon in the struggle against the forces of darkness.

The race to secure the prize draws in private detective Charlie Parker, a man who knows more than most about the nature of the terrible evil that seeks to impose itself on the world and who fears that his own name may be on the list. It lures others too: a beautiful, scarred woman with a taste for killing; a silent child who remembers his own death; and the serial killer known as the Collector, who sees in the list new lambs for his slaughter. But as the rival forces descend upon this northern state, the woods prepare to meet them, for the forest depths hide other secrets.

Someone has survived the crash.

Something has survived the crash—and it is waiting.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Strongly recommended for plot, characterization, authenticity, angels…horror, humor, and humanity.” 

    Library Journal

  • “This story inspires both a shudder or twenty and the vaguely realized idea that as far out as Connolly’s stories can sometimes be, there is always the possibility that he could be onto something.” 

    Kirkus Reviews

Listener Opinions

    " Briliant love Charlie Parker, Angel and Louis "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John McKenna | 2/9/2014

    " This novel is fast-pacede, action-packed and relentlessly addictive. The characters will stay with you a long while. John Connolly is an Irish wordsmith with a growing reputation on both sides of the Atlantic. His writing is dramatic, compelling and seamless. If you are looking for something out of the ordinary, don't miss this young author. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary Grace Walsh | 2/5/2014

    " Charlie Parker's dark world. This is the eleventh novel in this series. John Connolly is a fine writer. The fallen angels are here as are the Collector and the Hollow Men. Charlie's pals Angel and Louis are in on the action as usual. If you've not read one then I'd say try the first one and see if they are for you. These stories are not for all, but they are very good stories. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Zogman | 1/26/2014

    " After the previous Connolly book, this one was a refreshing change. Charlie Parker was back to (almost) full strength. Angel and Louis have fully fleshed out parts, not the short cameos in the previous book. I felt it kind of lost its way in the middle, but there is lots of action all through the book. Well worth taking the time for. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gary Murphy | 1/22/2014

Not a bad read but I still prefer his earlier books they r darker but still wort a read "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brian | 1/20/2014

    " I am a friend and fan. Thrilled to get an advance copy and dive right in. Great so far. Once again, Connolly and Parker do not disappoint. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Darren Hosken | 1/9/2014

    " His latest plot is a clever mixture of quest and chase, producing a excellent thriller with dark undertones and believable characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lesley Miller | 1/6/2014

    " I love the Charlie Parker books, that is all I need to say.. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cheyenne Hornburg | 1/1/2014

    " I love the Charlie Parker series! Connolly always leaves me wanting more. For those unfamiliar, this is a crime series with a spiritual, other-worldly twist. You could really pick up any book in the series but you'll want--need--to read them all. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brian MacLearn | 12/4/2013

    " The Wrath was more of a drama. I love the Charlie Parker series, but this one seemed to drag. It had its moments and it did explain a little more of the fallen angel history. The core plot line was very interesting, but took too long to resolve. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jim Graham | 12/4/2013

    " If you're expecting a mystery-thriller - no. This is about the paranormal; but it doesn't have a clear perspective of what it intends to present to the reader. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Helena | 12/1/2013

    " Exciting but descriptive fantasy-crime, can't wait to read the rest "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Adrielle Pottle | 9/26/2013

    " Pure brilliance 4.5 stars "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joanna (J.F.Penn) | 8/30/2013

    " I love the Charlie Parker books and this was another great one. A plane goes down in the forest and dangerous people are searching for what it contained. The body count piles up and Parker must confront old enemies and clear suspicions of his own nature. Suitably creepy and macabre. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth | 6/9/2013

    " I love these books and these characters. Always solid, creepy thrills to be had. There's a reason I don't go camping! "

    " Okay, I admit that I'm a huge fan of John Connolly's Charlie Parker books and the concept of ancient evil and fallen angels. So I was more than ready to read and like this and I did. "
