Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

On the Maine island once known as Sanctuary, policeman Joe Dupree is the guardian of its secrets, keeper of its memories. He knows that Sanctuary had been steeped in carnage once, centuries ago, when its settlers were betrayed to their enemies and slaughtered. Now, a strange, otherworldly evil is about to descend again...

With rookie officer Sharon Macy, Joe stands guard against a bloodthirsty band of men set on murder, robbery, and retribution. But unleashing the fury of the ghosts of the past will have unimaginable consequences for any who spill innocent blood on Sanctuary's shores.

Review:

"[A] terrifying story, the action brutal, grotesque and unrelentingly violent....Think Thomas Harris by way of Stephen King: haunting, compelling, but not for the faint of heart." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Connolly writes like a poet....A stylish darkness sucks you under." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"This elegantly written good-versus-evil story will appeal not only to crime-fiction readers but also to fans of such high-profile horror authors as King and Koontz." David Pitt, Booklist

Review:

"Connolly takes the best of novels and movies about haunted houses, ghosts and things that go bump in the night and folds them into the mystery genre....[A] slam-bang denouement during which you'll want to make sure your own doors and windows are secure." South Florida Sun-Sentinel

Review:

"Connolly's rendering of the island...is nothing short of breathtaking. If you read this book after dark, you will be tempted to look toward the nearest window and wonder what is lurking out there....Bad Men is totally compelling." St. Petersburg Times

Review:

"[R]eads like a collaboration between Dennis Lehane and Stephen King, with Garth Ennis throwing in an occasional farthing....Connelly's narrative here is seamless....You will never forget Connelly, Bad Men, or Moloch." BookReporter.com

Review:

"A tense, deliciously creepy story." The Kansas City Star

Review:

"Dark, daring, and original. This one is his best." Michael Connelly, New York Times bestselling author of The Narrows

Review:

"One of the best thriller writers we have." Harlan Coben, New York Times bestselling author of Tell No One

Synopsis:

On a cold night in 1693, the people of the small Maine island of Sanctuary were betrayed to their enemies and slaughtered in the moonlight. Since the massacre, the island has enjoyed 300 years of peace — until now. Fast-paced, spellbinding, and elegantly written, Bad Men is Connolly at his chilling best.

Synopsis:

New York Times bestselling author John Connolly masterfully intertwines mystery, emotion, violence, and the supernatural in this raw and gripping thriller.

A group of men are descending on Sanctuary, their purpose to hunt down and kill the wife of their leader and retrieve the money that she stole from him. All that stands in their way are a young rookie officer, Sharon Macy, and Melancholy Joe Dupree, the island's strange, troubled policeman.

Joe Dupree is no ordinary policeman. He is the guardian of the island's secrets, the repository of its memories. He knows that Sanctuary has been steeped in blood once; it will tolerate the shedding of innocent blood no longer. Now a band of killers is set to desecrate Sanctuary and unleash the fury of its ghosts upon themselves and all who stand by them. On Sanctuary, evil is about to meet its match...

Fast-paced, spellbinding, and elegantly written, Bad Men is John Connolly at his chilling best.
