The Black Angel is not an object. The Black Angel is not a myth. The Black Angel lives. A young woman goes missing from the streets of New York. Those who have taken her believe that nobody cares about her, and that no one will come looking for her. They are wrong. She is 'blood' to the killer Louis, the man who stands at the right hand of private detective Charlie Parker, and Louis will tear apart anyone who stands in the way of his attempts to find her. But as Louis's violent search progresses, Parker comes to realize that the disappearance is part of an older mystery, one that is linked to an ornate church of bones in Eastern Europe, to the slaughter at a French monastery in 1944, and to the quest for a mythical prize that has been sought for centuries by evil men: the Black Angel. Yet the Black Angel is more than a myth. It is conscious. It dreams. It is alive. And men are not the only creatures that seek it . . .… (mere)

I am really enjoying this series. I think that Connolly bit off a bit too much with this one, however. It read to me more like a Preston/Child supernatural thriller than an installment in this gritty noir series.

That isn’t a bad thing really but it made this book feel different to me that than the ones in the series. In The Black Angel, Mr. Connolly provides a history of the source of evil that has permeated the first two books and fills out a mythology of sorts to explain it all. In the first four books we are certainly aware of another plane of existence that keeps bleeding into the real world or at least Charlie Parker’s real world, but the style was mainly gritty noir. The supernatural elements were given a lesser stage as mainly it was the unavenged dead that sought him out and plead to him to bring justice to their killers. Later, once he learns of and starts to travel The White Road creatures less (or more?) than human noticed him and began to seek him out. Well, in this installment they find him and he realizes that his mission might be much bigger than he thought.

I am not sure what this means for the rest of the series. I have no intention of stopping, that is for sure.

Thought it went into dark areas not usually visited by John. Well conceived & delivered. ( )

This was another great installment in the series. The story took a different stance on the whole murderer/paranormal story. Parker isn’t the main focus in the story and it’s a refreshing break. Louis’s backstory is fleshed out more and Parker’s supernatural elements are becoming more pronounced. Looking forward to reading the next novel in the series. ( )

Mystery, thriller, suspense with hints of the supernatural (or super disturbed,) The "Black Angel" will lure you into a world where evil brushes casually by on busy city streets, and it will keep you there way past your bedtime. I enjoyed this book a great deal, and would recommend it generally, with the proviso that it's VERY,VERRY strong in terms of horror and suffering.
