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
You may think at times you are reading a literary novel but then Connolly will remind you he's just as adept at the violent strategies of the thriller. Either way you will be left shaken by the experience.
With Connolly, good and evil are always too close for comfort.
Ingenious, seriously scary and plausible . . . Excellent
Haunting, scary and addictive . . . the finest crime series currently in existence.
Connolly ties the plot strands together with consummate skill . . . a gripping whodunnit . . . genuinely chilling . . . Connolly delivers what his readers have come to expect: a few belly laughs, some shivers down the spine and a compelling mystery . . . few writers can compete with him.
Praise for THE BURNING SOUL: '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.'
