More About A Song of Shadows by John Connolly
 
 
 
Overview
Still recovering from his life-threatening wounds, private detective Charlie Parker investigates a case that has its origins in a Nazi concentration camp during the Second World War.
Parker has retreated to the small Maine town of Boreas to regain his strength. There he befriends a widow named Ruth Winter and her young daughter, Amanda. But Ruth has her secrets. Old atrocities are about to be unearthed, and old sinners will kill to hide their sins. Now Parker is about to risk his life to defend a woman he barely knows, one who fears him almost as much as she fears those who are coming for her.
His enemies believe him to be vulnerable. Fearful. Solitary.
But they are wrong. Parker is far from afraid, and far from alone.
For something is emerging from the shadows . . .

In Connolly’s gripping 13th Charlie Parker thriller (after 2014’s The Wolf in Winter), the normally peaceful town of Boreas, Maine, where the PI has retreated, is suddenly hit with several murders in rapid succession. First, four members of a family—the parents and two teenage daughters—are shot dead in their house. Then a body washes ashore not far from the home of Ruth Winter, a single mother with a daughter who’s nine, about the same age as Charlie’s. While visiting Ruth, Charlie notices that she has removed the mezuzah from her front door, is unusually apprehensive about something, and refuses, despite Charlie’s urging, to reveal what she knows about the drowned man found on the beach. Cory Bloom, Boreas’s chief of police, and Gordon Walsh, a Maine State Police detective, feed Charlie information as he doggedly pursues the killer, in the process offering himself as bait. The fast-paced action builds to a shocking ending. Agent: Darley Anderson, Darley Anderson Literary. (Sept.)
