REVEW: The Unquiet by John Connolly

This is the best novel I’ve read so far in 2008. It is unlike the vast majority of mysteries written today and unlike anything else I’ve ever read. While P.I. Charlie Parker is a likable, but flawed character, it was the plot, which was most memorable and unique. Connolly’s use of Frank Merrick as a character is also nothing short of genius. A self-described killer, Merrick keeps crossing Parker’s path in his search for his missing daughter. While Parker is looking into the disappearance of Dr. Daniel Clay, Merrick’s appearances are intense and unpredictable. At times, the subject of child abuse is hard to read and yet it was also educational. Connolly takes you into a world where evil exists, but there are other forces at work and you have no idea which side they’re on. Highly Recommended! *****
