Publisher's Summary

The new thrilling instalment of John Connolly's popular Charlie Parker series.

It is spring, and the mummified 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....

Loved it!

My favourite author by far.
I loved the humour tucked neatly amongst the action, and always Louis and Angel. A great story with great characters and all the twists and turns you come to expect from this series.

Another great audio book

Interesting yarn that leaves you wanting more, the reader took a chapter or two to get into stride after that flawless effort

Well worth the wait!

Listening to Jeff Harding narrate a John Connolly’s books is time spent in the company of masters of their crafts. How long do I have to wait for the next instalment?

Left wanting more

Another great story by John Connolly. Love Charlie Parker, but so many questions remain unanswered, hoping there will be another book to answer them all.

Connolly's done it again.

Yet another awesome installment in the Charlie Parker story. I dont know where to begin, or where to end in my review. Just know, it kept me awake, and it was almost impossible to find a suitable place to pause the book. You've been warned...

The Woman in the Woods also shows a unexpected 'human' side to Louis, including a few 'lump in the throat' moments. (Perhaps almost a tear.)

As expected, a fantastic performance by Jeff Harding. I'm so impatient and want for the next book already!

Another fantastic book

John Connolly is one of my all time favourite authors, and although the description of this book didn’t quite appeal, I eventually decided to purchase it anyway, because of my enjoyment of Connolly’s previous books. This didn’t disappoint...gripping, multi-layered and with the addition of the unique mysticism which sets Connolly’s books apart from the rest. Thoroughly recommended...
