The Wrath of Angels

In the depths of the Maine woods, the wreckage of an aeroplane is discovered. There are no bodies, and no such plane has ever been reported missing, but men both good and evil have been seeking it for a long, long time. What the wreckage conceals is more important than money: it is power. Hidden in the plane is a list of names, a record of those who have struck a deal with the Devil.

Publisher's Summary

In the depths of the Maine woods, the wreckage of an aeroplane is discovered. There are no bodies, and no such plane has ever been reported missing, but men both good and evil have been seeking it for a long, long time. What the wreckage conceals is more important than money: it is power. Hidden in the plane is a list of names, a record of those who have struck a deal with the Devil. Now a battle is about to commence between those who want the list to remain secret and those who believe that it represents a crucial weapon in the struggle against the forces of darkness.

The race to secure the prize draws in private detective Charlie Parker, a man who knows more than most about the nature of the terrible evil that seeks to impose itself on the world, and who fears that his own name may be on the list. It lures others too: a beautiful, scarred woman with a taste for killing; a silent child who remembers his own death; and the serial killer known as the Collector, who sees in the list new lambs for his slaughter. But as the rival forces descend upon this northern state, the woods prepare to meet them, for the forest depths hide other secrets. Someone has survived the crash.

Something has survived the crash. And it is waiting.

    "Confusing if you've not read the rest"

    There were a lot of references back to the previous books in the series, and my memory is so rubbish I couldn't remember them all; so this may not interest newcomers to the series until they read them all.

    Parker is asked to help look for a downed plane, but lots of folk are after it for various reasons. Who will get there first?

    "Master of suspense"

    I love all of John Connellys books with Charlie and Angel and Louie, you can imagine doing the same things when the bad guys come creeping out of the woodwork. I sometimes wish they were not so good, It's like they are family and you just hate it when things don't go quite right for them, I just wish I such goods friends who are always there for you when you need them. I hope you keep going with them for a long time to come John. Can't wait for the next new one

    "Good...but"

    This book was narrated by an American which Sorry to Americans but I dont really like

    However this gentleman was rather good and he did a wide range of different characters that I found very believeable. The story was good,it did however jump between the first and third persons speaking which didnt bother me but I know some people dislike this

    I enjoyed the story and the ending seemed to wrap up a lot of loose ends which I like in a book but for me there wasnt the wow factor and it wasnt a book I couldnt put down so to speak

    Story
    "Just gets better and better"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. The suspense is nail biting and the characters are really bought to life, a great thriller which keeps you gripped from start to finish.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love the Charlie Parker series and John Connoly captures the battle with good and evil in a way no other author can do. The series is never dull with new twists in each book.


    What does Jeff Harding bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    I have read the book and Jeff Harding captures the mannerisms of the characters perfectly, his voice is just meant to narrate this series. I had never heard of Jeff Harding before this (sorry Jeff) but, I can't imagine them being read by anyone else. There was a previous book read by another narrator and although well read I did not enjoy it as much. So hats off to Jeff Harding for doing such an amazing job, I particularly enjoy his portrayal of Angel.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed in places but mostly was in total suspense.

    "Another great author discovered"

    I found this book whilst looking for a Michael Connolly book, but the title and cover art persuaded me to have a look at it. I really enjoy this book will certainly be listening to more from this author.

    "lost the plot....."

    I have enjoyed earlier books in this series more. It was a bit disjointed, and, for me, the overall theme of the story was lost. There seemed to be a lot of murder and mayhem over not much at all. If you asked me to tell you succinctly what the book was about, I would find it difficult to answer, beyond saying it was a 'supernatural thriller.'
