My review

This is my first crime book by the famous writer John Connolly. Wow!  I totally lost my myself for hours with this terrifying thriller. Some authors stand out from the crowd and John Connolly has done this with The Wolf In Winter. The story has such a scale of great detail in Prosperous a small town a homeless man Jude who lives on the streets. In winter he would seek a bed at Oxford Street shelter. Jude’s wife died hating him because he left her and his child. With Jude’s life on the streets he was well-known to his fellow street people and the law. Jude was always a law- abiding man. It soon appears that Jude finds out that his daughter is now living and working at Tender House that catered for women victims of domestic and sexual abuse, runaways and women who simply needed a place to stay for a while. Sadly Jude hangs himself without being reunited with his daughter. It will move you tears as Jude daughter is shot in the chest and dies. Lots of discoveries and pain throught this fast- paced thriller. I highly recommend The Wolf in Winter a Charlie Parker thriller it is going to be a big seller. Every women and men readers will recognize the dilemmas of secrets life and death and murder!.
