This is another fine, complex read, Connolly again blending elements of the traditional gothic tale with those of the modern psychological thriller, horror, detective and science fiction genres, to be enjoyed with a good whisky during the last of the cold nights while your house softly whispers about you. - Weekend AustralianA Song of Shadows might be Connolly's best book in this outstanding series. Powered by elegant and evocative prose, this story enthralls and provokes in equal measure. It's an intoxicating blend of noir tinged with the paranormal, where life's biggest questions are asked of characters and readers alike. Simply superb. - Good Reading AustraliaThis is a cracking novel and I have barely hinted at some of its major dimensions. It has as many characters as Nicholas Nickleby, and they are all well developed and memorable. Connolly's remarkable skills allow you to penetrate the minds of aged citizens with 60 years of peaceful, respectable life in the US who once committed unspeakable crimes. - Adelaide ReviewBeautifully written as always, Connolly's latest and very worthy addition to the Parker canon, piles thrill upon thrill while uncovering some uncomfortable truths - Irish IndependentUp there with the best of Connolly's Charlie Parker novels and I would recommend it to anyone with a pulse, It is a truly riveting read. - CrimewarpPraise for THE WOLF IN WINTER:Superb . . . this thriller underlines just how fine a write Connolly has become. - Daily MailA brilliant performance from one of our finest writers. - Irish TimesPraise for John Connolly:Connolly has virtually no match when it comes to chilling his readers - Daily Express
