Bad Men is thoughtful, dark and absolutely addictive
John Connolly writes like an angel, but about evil men and their diabolical deeds. . . Written with some style and by a man completely at ease with his work, Bad Men is probably John Connolly's best novel yet. It is five-star chill with enough menace to keep the pages turning well into the wee small hours.
a unique blend of crime and horror
Think Thomas Harris by way of Stephen King: haunting, compelling, but not for the faint of heart.
Connolly writes like a poet . . . A stylish darkness sucks you under.
Remarkably assured and atmospheric crime novel . . . each successive Connolly novel has grown in authority and skill. . . Crime, horror and the supernatural are blended in a queasy mix that often has an almost physical impact on the reader.
Connolly spins his gruesome yarn with relish.
In the crowded killing fields of crime fiction, John Connolly has quickly and decisively established himself as a unique voice. With BAD MEN he does it again, giving us a powerful story that is dark, daring and original. This one is his best.
