John Connolly was born in Dublin in 1968. His debut - EVERY DEAD THING - swiftly launched him right into the front rank of thriller writers, and all his subsequent novels have been bestsellers. He is the first non-American writer to win the US Shamus award.
As ever with Connolly, the macabre narrative is couched in prose that is often allusive and poetic . . . Refreshingly, Connolly has always resisted repeating himself, and the plot trajectory is strikingly innovative. The Reapers affords unusually bracing doses of Stygian delights. - Barry Forshaw, IndependentThe Reapers is an excellent addition to Connolly's already high calibre collection of work to feature this team who seem, on the surface at least, so different from one another and yet manage to gel so well. I challenge anyone to be able to put this book down. I am sure you will be as gripped as the fast moving story as I was, and I have no doubt this is one of the best crime novels you are likely to read this year! - Chris Simmons, Crimesquad.comIt's a must-read for fans of Connolly, offering a rare insight into the background of the slightly dark and dangerous duo who have featured in this series, where death and demons go hand-in-hand. - Evening TelegraphThis painstaking recreation of realistic settings sets the former journalist's works of fiction apart from many of his contemporaries. - Evening HeraldReaders will be delighted with the return of Connolly's greatest creation, Charlie Parker. - Cork Evening Echo
