The Reapers - John Connolly
peripherally a Charlie Parker story, this is more about Louis and Angel; mostly about Louis and his past and what happens when that catches up with them both.

A wealthy recluse sends Louis and Angel on a mission to a town where things aren't as they seem and where they find themselves in serious danger. Charlie Parker has to come to their rescue but things are quite perilous and survival won't be easy. This will make and break relationships.

Not so much of the supernatural but a lot of assassins and killers being brutal to each other. I liked Willie, the mechanic and his story drew me in (as I'm sure the author intended).

There was a great piece: "When the three men had gone, Brooker sat silently at his kitchen table while his wife rolled dough behind him, and tried to ignore the waves of disapproval that were breaking upon his back." (p. 336 in my edition) I liked the imagery.

There were some very gory parts to this... not for the squeamish, the relish some of the characters had for killing was chilling. ( )

This was a great read. Finally we find out a bit more about Louis and Angels backstory. The book really belongs to them but Parker is there for them at the end. In a way the story is a sad one as you get to see the fallout of Louis’s, Angels and Parker’s actions on those who come in contact with them. Friend and foe alike. ( )

When I started reading this book, after a few pages I wanted to give it up. It was simply not the kind of a book I would enjoy. However, there was something in the Connolly's writing that kept me reading one more page and then another and suddenly I was hooked. I do admit that even after I finished it I had my doubts about the story. I didn't like the brutality, so many people killed in such an easy fashion. But I loved the author's style. He is simply a great narrative who knows how to describe his characters. I particularly liked how he spent so much time describing minor characters who only a few sentences later ended up dead. And there was this brilliant subtle humour which made the otherwise brutal story seem human. At the end I actually trully enjoyed reading this book. ( )

It is beautifully written as always. There is no supernatural this time around, simply high-octane suspense. The narrative presents many characters, all of them interesting, all of them crucial to the plot. I love the way that John Connolly presents every character as if he was the lead of the story. Within a few pages, we know the back story of every major and secondary characters, which in turns makes us feel a part of the story. It's not simply a kill in the end when someone dies. Some might feel as though these descriptions are too much, filler, but they serve their purpose. Every character becomes known to us which, in turns, makes their eventual doom more striking. Although the book is short (especially compared to Connolly's other books) this is one of his best. It was great to learn Angel and Louis's past and to see them take the lead for once. The sections of the novel that gives us Louis's past are written in a very cinematic way. But the real pleasure was the last 50 pages or so. The finale is so intense, so well plotted that it will leave you feeling breathless. ( )

I have read a few John Connolly, in the Charlie Parker series, I liked that this one dwelved into the past of Lewis, and that Charlie Parker only had a side role. It was interesting to see how he had become who he is and also how he might ran his business. A very entertaining book, a fast read. ( )
