My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is my first book by John Connolly and it certainly won't be my last. It took me a little bit to keep track of who we were reading about as it jumped from character to character. It was easier than many books I have read that used this method to tell their story. This was since it isn't written in first person. This book is very well-written and typo free.
I liked the paranormal aspect of the story. Since I hadn't read any of the other books in this series I expected a straight detective//P.I./mystery story. Instead I found a book that included FBI, local police, supernatural beings masquerading as human, true evil and those who battled it. I found the style of writing as well as the subject matter to be similar to the writing of Stephen King or Peter Straub. This book clearly shows a battle between good and evil. Evil is destroyed or atleast believed to be. Charlie isn't all good but he uses everything he has to battle against those who do evil.
I would recommend this book to anyone liking mysteries and the supernatural. I received this book free from netgalley.com in exchange for a fair and honest review.
