Description

It is 1997, and someone is slaughtering young black women in Burdon County, Arkansas.

But no one wants to admit it, not in the Dirty South.

In an Arkansas jail cell sits a former NYPD detective, stricken by grief. He is mourning the death of his wife and child, and searching in vain for their killer. He cares only for his own lost family.

But that is about to change . . .

Witness the becoming of Charlie Parker.

Publisher Review

Praise for A BOOK OF BONES: This is a weighty epic, full of cunningly knotted plot strands - Mail on Sunday This epic tale deserves all the praise that is coming its way. Phenomenal. - Sun This is a five-star novel. How can Connolly possibly surpass it? I can't wait to find out. - Shots magazine Essential reading for any Charlie Parker fan, and a masterclass in juggling multiple styles. 10/10 - SciFi Bulletin Connolly's potent, turbulent blend of crime and supernatural fiction is on full display, and there is a new stylistic ease . . . A Book of Bones is a rich mix . . . infused with English folk mythology and an uncanny feel for landscape and setting, with a delirious, propulsive plot - Irish Times This could be Connolly's masterpiece, but who knows what might appear in the future - Buzzmag
