There are no bodies, and no such plane has ever been reported missing, but men both good and evil have been seeking it for a long, long time. What the wreckage conceals is more important than money: it is power. Hidden in the plane is a list of names, a record of those who have struck a deal with the Devil. Now a battle is about to commence between those who want the list to remain secret and those who believe that it represents a crucial weapon in the struggle against the forces of darkness. The race to secure the prize draws in private detective Charlie Parker, a man who knows more than most about the nature of the terrible evil that seeks to impose itself on the world, and who fears that his own name may be on the list.

    Review quote
    Haunting, scary and addictive ... the finest crime series currently in existence. As always, the plot marries an ingenious, if recognisable, detective story with something wicked and otherwordly. Indepent on Sunday Few thriller writers can create a sense of menace and evil as deftly as Connolly does. Compelling. Irish Independent With Connolly, good and evil are always too close for comfort Daily Mirror [What] is so impressive [is] the fact that he's able to work poetic language into the thriller format ... You may think at times you are reading a literary novel but then Connolly will remind you he's just as adept at the violent strategies of the thriller. Either way you will be left shaken by the experience. Daily Express Connolly returns to page-turning form with his depiction of a moral world at the mercy of epic conspiracy and remorseless, primordial evil The Irish Times This thriller might just have you grasping for your childhood teddy. Loaded His latest plot is a clever mixture of quest and chase ... rarely fails to sing Observer Skilful at humour and building suspense, Connolly's writing is also poignant and at times downright beautiful Sunday Business Post Connolly has always managed to deftly juggle the essential elements of genre fiction with his own supernatural flavour and WRATH is no exception ... Connolly has crafted [Parker] so expertly. Hot Press Ireland Ingenious, seriously scary and plausible ... Excellent Sun
