This is a five-star novel. How can Connolly possibly surpass it? I can't wait to find out
Essential reading for any Charlie Parker fan, and a masterclass in juggling multiple styles. 10/10
This could be Connolly's masterpiece, but who knows what might appear in the future
This epic tale deserves all the praise that is coming its way. Phenomenal.
This is a weighty epic, full of cunningly knotted plot strands
Dark, full of depth, at times downright creepy, totally gripping and ticks all the boxes for a must-read
Another classic Charlie Parker tale . . . where history, lore, myth and legend come together to welcome sacrifice
Connolly's potent, turbulent blend of crime and supernatural fiction is on full display, and there is a new stylistic ease . . . A Book of Bones is a rich mix . . . infused with English folk mythology and an uncanny feel for landscape and setting, with a delirious, propulsive plot
