'Bad Men is thoughtful, dark and absolutely addictive' -- Irish Times '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.' -- Irish Times 'Will the film version be directed by John Carpenter or Quentin Tarantino? ... Connolly spins his gruesome yarn with relish' -- Mail on Sunday 'a unique blend of crime and horror' -- Crime Time '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.' -- Michael Connelly 'Think Thomas Harris by way of Stephen King: haunting, compelling, but not for the faint of heart.' -- Publishers Weekly 'Connolly writes like a poet ... A stylish darkness sucks you under.'
