From internationally bestselling author and “creative genius who has few equals in either horror fiction or the mystery genre” (New York Journal of Books) comes a gripping thriller starring Private Investigator Charlie Parker. When the body of a woman—who apparently died in childbirth—is discovered, Parker is hired to track down both her identity and her missing child. In the beautiful Maine woods, a partly preserved body is discovered. Investigators realize that the dead young woman gave birth shortly before her death. But there is no sign of a baby. Private detective Charlie Parker is hired by a lawyer to shadow the police investigation and find the infant but Parker is not the only searcher. Someone else is following the trail left by the woman, someone with an interest in much more than a missing child…someone prepared to leave bodies in his wake. And in a house by the woods, a toy telephone begins to ring and a young boy is about to receive a call from a dead woman.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“There’s no mistaking a John Connolly novel, with its singular characters, eerie subject matter and socko style. All these flags are flying in The Woman in the Woods." New York Times
“Fans of gothic horror, a genre not out of place in Maine or Ireland, should enjoy Connolly’s blend of crime and supernatural horror.” (Crime Reads) Crime Reads
“Fans will agree that this is Connolly’s masterpiece.” Publishers Weekly (starred and boxed review)
“Sixteen books into the Charlie Parker series and Connolly continues to deliver with his unique blend of supernatural, horror and crime fiction wrapped into one explosive package…The prose is lyrical and lush, and moves swiftly from scene to scene while ramping up the suspense and the sense of impending doom. The villains are heinous, vacuous, and empty, inflicting horrific pain on their victims with no regard for human life. As the layers are peeled back in this complex mystery, each new chapter hits you like a sucker punch. This haunting thriller will keep you reading into the night with the lights on and the phone turned off.” RT Book Reviews (4 stars)
