What's the story? Couldn't tell ya
I like the Charlie Parker series, I really do. I've read several books in the series, and I usually appreciate its supernatural / metaphysical touches - it gives the detective stories a darker edge.
The Black Angel, however, gives an Old Testament / Occult Tale a detective edge. It starts out with the search for a missing prostitute and veers off into the Old Testament, WWII, medieval history, endless facts about the Sedlec Ossuary, cults, Nazis, etc. until I was so disinterested that I skipped the final 4 hours.
I wanted a Charlie Parker installment and got an Umberto Ecco tribute.
Jeff Harding reads well. He has to impersonate a large cast of characters, so it's probably unavoidable that some of them 'sound' a little annoying.
