When Charlie Parker was still a boy, his father, a NYPD cop, killed a young couple, a boy and a girl barely older than his son, and then took his own life. There was no explanation for his actions. Now Parker is working on his most personal case yet: an investigation into his own origins and the circumstances surrounding the death of his father. The investigation will reveal a life haunted by lies, by secrets kept and loyalties compromised. And by two figures in the shadows, a man and a woman, with only one purpose: to bring an end to Charlie Parker's existence....

The story line finally became good....but took a long time getting there !
Change title situation a little....If I were his publisher, I would have cautioned against publishing..no offence John !
But I absolutely LOVE this series! If you think of "living" dead people more as spirits or entities then use your credits on this series starting at number 1 and know that you've got a whole load of great listening and fabulous narration. After all, if it's not your "thing" then you can always return it 😊
I bought this title on the basis of its star rating and description, mistakenly thinking that this was a crime thriller. I haven't previously read anything by this author. The first half of the book was suitably thrilling and interesting, but once the supernatural references started to appear, and it became apparent that the mystery was based in supernatural circumstances I couldn't have been more disappointed if vampires or zombies had been introduced. Just not my genre; it it's yours you will doubtless enjoy it as it was unquestionably well-written and well-read.
