Reviews

In THE BURNING SOUL, John Connolly has delivered a cracking good tale that seamlessly blends suspense, mystery and just the lightest touch of his signature supernatural ambience. As always, Connolly writes beautifully. He brings the backwoods of Maine alive, and the main and secondary characters are all acutely observed
<i>Irish Independent</i>
Another creepy thriller from a modern master.
<i>Daily Mirror</i>
He's compared with Stephen King because his tales have a touch of the supernatural - but crime writer John Connolly is a star in his own right. The Irishman has more than proved himself and the new Charlie Parker novel The Burning Soul is another cracking read.

The author's powers remain undimmed. Vintage JC.
<i>Express</i>
An intelligent, plausible thriller, both harrowing and memorable.
