“A truly harrowing murder plot…. An ambitious foray…deep into Hannibal Lecter territory…. The extravagantly gifted Connolly, living up to his title, is never too busy for another flashback to Bird’s violent past en route to his final confrontation with the Traveling Man.”

—Kirkus Reviews

“For me, the best thing about an author’s first novel is its untarnished honesty. John Connolly’s EVERY DEAD THING has that reckless intensity. Set against the gritty canvas of a serial killer loose in New York City, John Connolly’s writing is as lilting and refreshing and as tempestuous as an Irish rainstorm. Warning: Don’t start this book unless you have time to finish it.”

—Paul Lindsay, former FBI agent and author of

Witness to the Truth

“Classic American crime fiction; it’s hard to believe that John Connolly was born and raised on the Emerald Isle.”

This one goes right up there on the year’s list of the best.”

— St. Petersburg Times (FL)

“A nonstop, action-packed tale that also has a warm side where love and loyalty (not DNA) make a person human.”


“Shades of The Silence of the Lambs here—but this debut book by Dubliner Connolly also has echoes of James Crumley, Patricia Cornwell, and Lawrence Block…. A terrifying finale…. Connolly manages to keep the tension simmering right to the very end.”

— Express & Star (UK)

“Absolutely spellbinding…. This is not a book for the timid.”

— Naples Daily News (FL)

“A big, meaty, often superbly written novel—astonishing, for a first-time author, in its scope and apparent veracity…. A book of sudden, horrifying violence an
