John Connolly est un auteur que j’adore. Les romans de sa saga autour du détective Charlie Parker figurent dans le lot de ceux que j’aime lire ou relire. Et alors que j’en ai encore trois de retard, je découvre que le 9 avril prochain un nouveau roman de la saga Charlie Parker sortira. Le nom de ce dernier est A song of Shadows et je croise les doigts pour que l’univers et la plume de John Connolly dans ce roman gardent le même mordant.
Still recovering from his life-threatening wounds, private detective Charlie Parker investigates a case that has its origins in a Nazi concentration camp during the Second World War.
Parker has retreated to the small Maine town of Boreas to regain his strength. There he befriends a widow named Ruth Winter and her young daughter, Amanda. But Ruth has her secrets. She is hiding from the past, and the forces that threaten her have their origins in the Second World War, in a town called Lubsko and a concentration camp unlike any other. Old atrocities are about to be unearthed, and old sinners will kill to hide their sins. Now Parker is about to risk his life to defend a woman he barely knows, one who fears him almost as much as she fears those who are coming for her.
His enemies believe him to be vulnerable. Fearful. Solitary.
But they are wrong. Parker is far from afraid, and far from alone.
For something is emerging from the shadows . . .
Pas encore de dates pour la France, mais une grande partie de la saga existant chez nous, cela ne devrait pas être long. Juste le temps de finir mon rattrapage.
