Bad Men

August 22nd, 2008 • Posted in News |

Just this second finished reading BAD MEN by John Connolly … definitely one of the best books I’ve read this year so far. He’s such a smooth, assured writer, his plotting is wonderful, and his characterisation is so strong it feels as if I know everyone in the novel. Many of the people I don’t want to know, of course, as in this novel Connolly has created some of the most reprehensible characters in fiction: Willard, the pretty-boy killer; and Moloch, even more evil than Willard, who seduces his wife through murder. I’ve only read EVERY DEAD THING before now – very imporessive, too – but after reading this one, I’m going to go out and buy every Connolly book, and savour them over the next year or so.

I love it when I find a new writer I enjoy as much as this.

Meanwhile, Robert Thompson over at Fantasy Book Critic has come up with the first part of his list of anticipated reads for next year, including my second collaboration with Chris Golden THE MAP OF MOMENTS. Check out the whole article here, if your credit card is feeling fruitful.
