The Killing Kind by John Connolly

I would like to read the supernatural thriller The Killing Kind by John Connolly. It feature Maverick private detective Charlie Parker. Parker learns that In 1963, a group of four families known as the Aroostock Baptists left their homes on the eastern seaboard and journeyed north, to Eagle Lake between New Brunswick and Maine. However By January 1964, the settlement had been abandoned and No trace of the founding families was ever found again. Then the discovery of a Mass grave finally reveals the truth about what happened to the Aroostock Baptists

Parker is hired to investigate the circumstances surrounding the suspicious death of Grace Peltier, Did She really commit suicide? He discovers that shortly before her untimely demise Grace stole an ancient relic belonging to an ancient sinister organisation called The Fellowship and that this ancient artefact could link them to both the slaughter of the Aroostock Baptists and the death of Grace Peltier so sinister forces were dispatched to recover it and kill Grace Peltier.

He also discovers that the deaths of the Aroostock Baptists and the violent passing of Grace Peltier are part of the same mystery, one that has its roots in her family history and in the origins of the shadowy organisation known as the Fellowship. Aided by the genial killers Angel and Louis, Parker descends into the depths of a nightmare world populated by dark angels and lost souls, and finds himself drawn into a violent conflict with a group of zealots. He is also haunted by the ghost of a small boy and tormented by the demonic killer known as Mr. Pudd. Soon Parker is forced to fight for his lover, his friends and his very soul.
