Publisher Description

The Number One bestseller.

It is spring, and the semi-preserved body of a young Jewish woman is discovered buried in the Maine woods. It is clear that she gave birth shortly before her death.

But there is no sign of a baby.

Private detective Charlie Parker is engaged by the lawyer Moxie Castin to shadow the police investigation and find the infant, but Parker is not the only searcher. Someone else is following the trail left by the woman, someone with an interest in more than a missing child, someone prepared to leave bodies in his wake.

And in a house by the woods, a toy telephone begins to ring.

For a young boy is about to receive a call from a dead woman . . .

The woman in the woods

I have been waiting patiently and excitedly for the release of this latest Charlie Parker instalment and I must say it did not disappoint. I’ve read every thrilling instalment of the John Connolly series and feel like I know the main characters personally now. You get sucked into the stories and find yourself trying to solve the mysteries before the last chapter. It’s easy to see that each book is leading the readers towards what will be the most dramatic finale. And Ross who is he really ?? Absolutely brilliant book like all the rest of the Charlie Parker books (whom I must say I’m a little in love with) I cant wait for the next one
