The stories in An Unobstructed View unfold through the simple gestures of day to day life in a small town of eight million people. There's the receptionist wondering why God has stopped listening to her; a child searching for a father who had been there just minutes before; a woman pressured to change her life by a cat in a neighbor's window; a man questioning the value of his life as it abruptly ends. Moments in time that are arrived at through the journeys of lifetimes. These eleven stories speak to the common experiences we all share -growing up, growing older, getting on with life as best we can, never giving up hope. The characters we meet on a street corner in Manhattan or in an apartment in Queens, are characters we could as easily meet on any given day in our own lives wherever we live. Characters with heart, with longing, with fears, with dreams. The very people we love. The people we recognize when we look in the mirror. At their best, the stories in this volume provide us with an unobstructed view into ourselves.

High school English teacher Skyler Foxe swears he's done being an amateur sleuth.

But Skyler encounters a few homegrown surprises of his own, not the least of which is the unwelcome appearance of one of Keith's old flames. What does HE want? And then Skyler is confronted with two shocking bits of news in his own backyard that makes him rethink his own future plans, whatever those are. But all that gets put aside when a murder occurs in plain sight at an outdoor concert. Skyler, his Scooby Gang, and even Keith join in to investigate a murder that's far too close to home.

#1 internationally bestselling author John Connolly delivers a masterful combination of “the hard-boiled with the supernatural” (Publishers Weekly, starred review) with this return of dangerous and driven private investigator Charlie Parker as he battles an old evil that haunts a strange and isolated community. Jerome Burnel was once a hero. He intervened to prevent multiple killings, and in doing so damned himself. His life was torn apart, imprisoned and brutalized. But in his final days, with the hunters circling, he tells his story to private detective Charlie Parker. He speaks of the girl who was marked for death, but was saved; of the ones who tormented him, and an entity that hides in a ruined stockade. Parker is not like other men. He died, and was reborn. He is ready to wage war. Now he will descend upon a strange, isolated community called the Cut, and face down a force of men who rule by terror, intimidation, and murder. All in the name of the being they serve. All in the name of the Dead King.
