A Time of Torment by John Connolly

untitled

When private investigator Charlie Parker is contacted by recently released hero-turned-inmate, Jerome Burnel, he hears a story that he’s not sure he believes. According to Burnel, he was set up by someone and is still being tormented and hunted by them. When Burnel disappears, Parker dives into the investigation, uncovering strange links to an area in West Virginia known as the Cut. The further he delves, the weirder things get, and the more certain he is that there is something more than just a close-knit family living in the Cut.

John Connolly’s A Time of Torment (Charlie Parker #14) is an intense, sinister ride. This is the first Charlie Parker Thriller that I have read, but I find myself wanting to start the series from the beginning now. Connolly seems to have a unique insight into the mind of a psychotic killer – I don’t know if that is a good thing or not. I really do wonder what he eats before bed to give him the nightmares he must have to come up with some of this stuff! Maybe he should consider changing his diet. Or maybe not, since it does make for a seriously creepy and super interesting story.

If you like your stories weird and wild, grab a copy of A Time of Torment. But be prepared to climb into the mind of some seriously whacked-out characters…

Many thanks to Atria Books and NetGalley for the free copy of this ebook for review purposes. I was not required to give a positive review. All opinions are my very own! 🙂
