The Burning Soul (Charlie Parker, #10) by John Connolly

The American versions of his Charlie Parker series have had multiple narrators, including Titus Welliver. A few years ago, a friend, back from an internship in London, lent me her copies of the first few Charlie Parker books, read by Jeff Harding, and I instantly fell in love with the characters, the blending of mystery and supernatural elements, and the tragic story of Private Investigator Charlie Parker.
Randall Haight, an unassuming local accountant, has a secret. A secret that may lead to him becoming not only a suspect, but a pariah in the small community.
To make matters worst, someone knows Haight has a secret, and through a series of anonymous letters, may be willing to use that information to harm him. Thus begins another complex mystery, the kind that Connolly does so well. In The Burning Soul, Connolly again finds the right balance, allowing Parker to work the mystery in a straight manner, yet still feel the added levels that the case brings.
I have always loved the balance Connolly brings. He never uses the supernatural elements as an easy out.

Parker never solves his mysteries by tapping into the spirit world, but through his own bullheaded, straightforward detective work. The audio production was another story. I found this handling of the story strange, but tolerable.

There was just something off about it. It sort of reminded me of when the audio is just slightly off on a DVD, and it just feels wrong. Despite the fact that the action takes place in New England, not a single authentic New England accent could be found in the production.
