“There’s a kind of evil that isn’t even in opposition to good, because good is an irrelevance to it. It’s a foulness that’s right at the heart of existence, born with the stuff of the universe. It’s in the decay to which all things tend. It is, and it always will be, but in dying we leave it behind. And while we’re alive? We set our souls against it, and our saints and angels, too. Especially the destroying ones”
Charlie Parker fights evil; evil of the most insidious kind, evil that seeks to erode the soul and framework of man. Charlie Parker is a man who died and came back. He is different now; he has a fire in his soul as he seeks to destroy evil as he senses and see things others can not. Charlie Parker and his friends Angel and Louis will fight the ultimate evil in this novel from the imagination of John Connolly.
