Publisher's Summary

It is deep winter. The darkness is unending. The private detective named Jaycob Eklund has vanished, and Charlie Parker is dispatched to track him down. Parker's employer, Edgar Ross, an agent of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, has his own reasons for wanting Eklund found. Eklund is no ordinary investigator. He is obsessively tracking a series of homicides and disappearances, each linked to reports of hauntings. Now Parker will be drawn into Eklund's world, a realm in which the monstrous Mother rules a crumbling criminal empire, in which men strike bargains with angels, and in which the innocent and guilty alike are pawns in a game of ghosts.

    "One of the best Parker books yet."

    The Parker books show no sign of slowing down, in fact they are getting better and better, which as a fan I didn't think was possible.

    Without giving anything thing away all I can say is the writing, setting and characters are all haunting and as cold as the Maine winters.

    "Disappointing"

    I've listened to all of the Charlie Parker series over the past 18 months and I've thoroughly enjoyed most if not quite all of them. I eagerly bought this one on the day of release but to my disappointment it's not on the same level as any of the others. It doesn't seem to move the main story arch along much and very little seemed to happen in the entire book.

    I'm sure I'll try the next in the series when it comes out but with the mediocre A Game of Ghosts and being at book 15 in a series I think I'm losing interest.

    "Vintage Charlie Parker - never disappointing!"

    All the usual characters with the dark humour and even darker supernatural occurrences, punctuated with some premature deaths. I still delayed cleaning my house to finish it though!

    "Excellent addition to Charlie Parker series."

    Loved it! Particularly like the development of Rachael's story line. Angel and Louis most likeable 'villans' ever.

    "The voices in my head"

    Yet another outstanding reading that had me staying awake to listen to the next chapter and the next. When I first heard Jeff Harding read the voices of Angel and Louis, it was as if they leaped from the page. I didn't have a preconceived idea of their voices in my head, but his reading seems absolutely spot on.
    The gradual development of the role of Parker's daughter adds an extra layer to a fascinating series and I can't wait for the next one.

    "Weird but rivetting!"

    Complex plot, characters who confound, but the whole brilliantly interpreted by Mr. Harding. Where/what next?

    "GAME OF STORIES"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No, I wouldn't! I would recommend them to start the series from the beginning.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    None.As The book, the ending reflected the absence of panache.


    What didn’t you like about Jeff Harding’s performance?

    I love Jeff Harding's performance, he is by far my favorite reader.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No !


    Any additional comments?

    It had to happen. We, the unconditional readers of Charlie Parker had it coming. We had been enthralled and captivated too many times.Game of ghosts, by far did not live up to my expectations. The narrative is neither as powerful nor absorbing as we were used to.
    It pains me to say that I got distracted reading this one and this is a first to me.Plus, one of the main villains was wiped out and the way it happened did not do him justice.Too many characters and subplots got me confused and I might be wrong here but I felt a certain lassitude that transpired through the words of the writer.Well, all that will not prevent me from reading the next installment, but it had to be said.
