Praise for A BOOK OF BONES:

This is a five-star novel.

How can Connolly possibly surpass it?

I can't wait to find out. - Shots magazine

Essential reading for any Charlie Parker fan, and a masterclass in juggling multiple styles. 10/10 - SciFi Bulletin

Connolly's potent, turbulent blend of crime and supernatural fiction is on full display, and there is a new stylistic ease . . . A Book of Bones is a rich mix . . . infused with English folk mythology and an uncanny feel for landscape and setting, with a delirious, propulsive plot - Irish Times
