5 stars I m thrilled to have another entry in the Irene Kelly series I liked the book for that reason alone, and the narrative was well done, as always, but I didn t love love love it For one thing, I m finding serial killer stories to be rather tedious any, and for another, there just wasn t enough Frank Harriman on the page Also, the prequel to this scenario, Bones, was outstanding and the villain incredibly frightening Bringing him back may have been a mistake because his effectiveness as a true horror of a creature was quite diluted Still, I got to see many of my old friends among the characters and meet a few new ones I have to say I ll still be first in line for the next Irene Kelly mystery.
Jan Burke is a talented writer, and while this book is well written and I wanted to be engaged, I could not I found that I was not looking forward to me nightly read, but forced myself to keep going than half way, but with some many books I d like to read, I gave up before coming to the end That was not because it was poorly written, I just wasn t interested in the story In my opinion, this was not a typical Jan Burke novel.

0 out of 5 stars A story series worthy of attention, November 27, 2013 This review is from Disturbance An Irene Kelly Novel Irene Kelly Mysteries Disturbance by Jan Burke.
I came across this book on CD while looking through the James Lee Burke CD s It looked interesting and it was a new series for me so I thought why no give it a try.
This story revolves around Nick Parrish, a serial killer Nick has defied the odds by escaping from prison, fleeing recapture which paralyzed him temporarily and the list goes on Nick Parrish has his own fan club calling themselves the moths.
Irene Kelly just recovering from PTSD with the help of her husband, Frank, feels the walls closing in on her again The walls of her life and her unending race to avoid Nick Parrish at all costs Then a woman s body is found naked, frozen and decorated with moths That There are disturbances of the atmospheric kind, and then there are the other kind Mental disturbances, the reverberations of their manifestations can last for years in their victims In Jan Burke s long awaited new book in the Irene Kelly series opens, that journalist s only real concern is about her employment status she is fully occupied by the distinct possibility that I would be out of a job within a few months That didn t make me different from ninety nine out of a hundred of the country s newspaper reporters But those worries, real as they are, pale in significance when she learns that the vicious serial killer from whom she had barely escaped with her life in an earlier book in the series, Bones, Nick Parrish, now in his fifties, has escaped from a maximum security prison Known to have had as many as fifty victims, in I ve enjoyed previous Irene Kelly books but this one left me cold and I abandoned it a third of the way through This book is styled as a sequel to the last Kelly installment Bones , and features the serial killer Nick Parrish who figured so largely in the suspenseful, violent plot of that book Bones ended with Parrish in prison and a paraplegic at the beginning of this novel, Burke has Parrish undergo a miracle medical recovery and begin walking again, only to coordinate a devious prison breakout By letting Parrish out and making him mobile again, Burke then styles the rest of the novel around his attempts to get revenge on Irene Kelly with the help of his illegitimate sons who apparently abound on nearly every street corner of poor Las Piernas.
The unbelievable nature of the plot devices aside one day a para I d read a couple in the Irene Kelly series in the mid late 1990s and enjoyed them then forgot about the series for some reason.
I read about this one in the newspaper last month and it reminded me about the series so I checked it out.
Though it has been a while since I ve read the first couple and have been added since then, I didn t feel lost If you haven t read any of them, you can pick this one up and go with it There are enough references so you know what s going on and who is who.
I liked the style of the writing It s fast paced and gritty The characters are likeable at least those who are supposed to be likable and believable I bought the ending.
It has inspired me to start at the beginning and reread the books and keep going with the ones I ve missed Blog review
Irene Kelly is recovering from her PTSD caused by being kidnapped by Nick Parrish He is is jail, paralyzed as a result of actions happening in Bones, so she feels safer Then she gets the news, Parrish is walking again The Las Piernas News Express closes and Irene is out of a job, too When Parrish escapes from prison, aided and abetted by The Moths, his online fan club, Irene knows he is coming for her Another well written, suspenseful book from Jan Burke I love Frank and Irene s relationship they love each other, but give each other space and each understands the other well The ending seemed a little pat, but satisfying, with lots of ends tied up I got the feeling this may be the end of Irene and Frank s adventures which would be too bad.
This is the ONLY Jan Burke book I have ever rated less than 4.
5 stars She is a great writer, and I have found her work in the past to be original, believable, and thought provoking But I didn t get the same vibe from Disturbance It seemed hurried, like she may have been distracted or rushed when she wrote it It was sloppy in places, and the major plot concepts in the book were well worn and tired sons of a serial killer I will still read every single book Ms Burke writes this one just wasn t her best.
