About the book
Slick, gripping with a hint of something darker than in a run-of-the-mill thriller.
Research project into thriller audience and John Connolly has resulted in a clear strategy for this growing author and a brand new look that uniquely positions his writing as a 'thriller with a twist'.
Every John Connolly novel featuring Charlie Parker has been a Sunday Times top ten bestseller.
'John Connolly is the creator of a unique blend of thriller and horror which receives rave reviews every time for his lyrical, almost poetic language.' Sunday Telegraph
The border between Maine and Canada is porous. Anything can be smuggled across it: drugs, cash, weapons, people.Now a group of disenchanted former soldiers has begun its own smuggling operation, and what is being moved is infinitely stranger and more terrifying than anyone can imagine. Anyone, that is, except private detective Charlie Parker, who has his own intimate knowledge of the darkness in men's hearts.But the soldiers' actions have attracted the attention of the reclusive Herod, a man with a taste for the strange. And where Herod goes, so too does the shadowy figure that he calls the Captain. To defeat them, Parker must form an uneasy alliance with a man he fears more than any other, the killer known as the Collector . . .

Read Review   Want to write a review?
'Supernatural thriller by Dublin's finest.'
'His latest plot is a clever mixture of quest and chase, written in prose that unfolds at warp speed'
'As ever with Connolly, the macabre narrative is couched in prose that is often allusive and poetic.'
'Brilliant, terrifying and effortlessly seductive, I defy anyone to put this thriller down - it is sensational.'
'Another creepy thriller from a modern master'
'Connolly subtly combines the supernatural with the traditional crime story to superb effect. And in Herod, a man being eaten by cancer, he may have created his creepiest villain yet.'
'This is one of Connolly's darker, scarier novels, all the more effective for the way the supernatural elements arise organically out of the realistic detail'
'A tour de force finale in a book which will sure be a bestseller this summer. It well deserves to be.'
