“Connolly infuses his thrillers with enough of the supernatural to please fans of both genres, but it’s his sense of humor, timeless characters, and impeccable writing that make his work worth reading.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“Strongly recommended for plot, characterization, authenticity…horror…and humanity.” Library Journal (starred review)
“John Connolly should be a household name, a writer who blends deft plotting, thoughtful characterization, and wry humor with gorgeous prose. His thrillers are something beyond the norm, a fusion of noir and horror that works seamlessly because of his remarkable talent. A brilliant novelist.” Michael Koryta
“A great read.” Booklist
“Memorable…It takes readers on a path they truly won’t believe, offering diehard evil from the first to the last page…Connolly has once again delivered an all-out thrill ride!” Suspense Magazine
