Connolly's first Charlie Parker book was great. This, his second, only a little less intense but well worth a read. I am now waiting for the third, e-version of The Killing Kind, and have already skipped ahead and finished 5 of his other novels. So nice to find a writer that does not disappoint or start phoning it in. His care with story and character is evident and the intersection of detective, suspense, horror and supernatural genres handled with aplomb..

A relentless drumbeat of dread as detective Charlie "Bird" Parker faces several sinister characters in bloody confrontation in rural frigid Maine. Dark Hollow was a surprise for me and is now on my list of my top five detective novels. Connolly writes with just a touch of Steven King. I am looking forward to reading his next book... with my lights on.
