When Charlie Parker was still a boy, his father, a NYPD cop, killed a young couple, a boy and a girl barely older than his son, then took his own life. There was no explanation for his actions. Now Parker is working on his most personal case yet: an investigation into his own origins and the circumstances surrounding the death of his father. The investigation will reveal a life haunted by lies, by secrets kept and loyalties compromised. And by two figures in the shadows, a man and a woman, with only one purpose: to bring an end to Charlie Parker's existence ...

After "The Reapers" I was in no mood for reading a book written by John Connolly. I was so let down by that book that it took a couple of months in order to get myself a bit of courage and try another Charlie Parker mystery.

Like I said in the review, "The Reapers" is a book that shouldn’t have a place within the Charlie Parker series. First, because it is an action/thriller book not a PI mystery Crime novel. And second, because the main character is Louis, one of Charlie's sidekicks, and not Charlie Parker. But for some reason I can’t comprehend, John Connolly wanted that mediocre action packed thriller to be part of an amazing Crime Mystery series. So of course I was skeptical regarding this new book.

As I see it "The Lovers" goes back to what John Connolly has always offered when writing a Charlie Parker novel, but the heart is not there. This is a mediocre mystery novel that possesses all too many scenes that are really hard to believe. The supernatural and horror are back, but the story is not polished enough.

Hopefully John Connolly will recover his old status, but it’s not going to happen with "The Lovers". He is long way from the standard of books like "The Unquiet" or "The Killing Kind". Far too long!
