Another chapter in the life of Charlie Parker and another fascinating read from the pen of the great John Connolly. Here is an author that seems to be totally in control of his writing and at the top of his game. * Shots * Once you start this book, make sure you've not got anything else important to do for the next few hours . . . The Charlie Parker books have always been a gripping and enthralling read, but this latest one simply won't let you go. * ScifiBulletin * A Game Of Ghosts is layered with such craft that it is almost a disappointment when things resolve themselves with relative quickness, as if you really don't wish to bid some of these characters behind. Even the most dangerous of them. Of course, in Charlie Parker's world, you never can be sure. * Irresistible Targets * If you like your thrillers with an added undertow of supernatural you can do no better. * The Pool * Connolly creates complicated plots that never unravel. He's just that good. * Kirkus * Beautifully crafted . . . John Connolly's unique ability to successfully combine crime and horror shows no sign of waning. * Irish Independent *
