Sarah Broadhurst's view...

I love this man’s books. I love his style, his twists and his characters. This is the third novel to feature his hero Ward Hopkins and the Straw Men, an evil organisation of killers who only get worse. I keep wondering what Marshall will do next, and he always surprises me. This book is a must, and try his sci-fi as Michael Marshall Smith. They are great too!

Comparison: Thomas Harris, Stephen King, James Patterson.

Synopsis

Blood of Angels by Michael Marshall

Notorious serial killer the Upright Man has escaped from prison, and the FBI have no idea where to look for him. His brother, Ward Hopkins, suspects he may have been aided by the Straw Men, the shadowy organization founded on murder as a way of life that killed Ward's parents.

But apart from his girlfriend Nina, a discredited FBI agent, the only other person who believes the Straw Men exist is John Zandt, a former homicide cop turned lone vigilante obsessed with tracking down the killers of his daughter, and now wanted for murder himself.

Ward's brother was broken out for a reason. The Straw Men are planning something new and terrible. And only Ward, Nina and John stand against the Upright Man and his terrifying allies.

Reviews

'A definite page-turner -- and a terrifying discourse on the nature of human eveil and the darkness among us ... this is as fierce as crime writing can get.' GUARDIAN

‘The taut pace, crisp style and ever-present sense of menace are those of a top-drawer thriller’ TELEGRAPH

‘Marshall is a cracker at writing tense, rich scenes’ OBSERVER
