PRAISE FOR THE STRAW MEN BOOKS

‘Just when you think there’s nothing new under the sun in the world of the suspense novel, along comes one hell of a nasty spider call The Straw Men. It’s brilliantly written and scary as hell. Be the first on your block to stay up all night with this one; it’s a masterpiece, reminding us that even paranoids really do have enemies.’
— STEPHEN KING

'A staggering, suspenseful journey through the darkness of American crime … succeeds in revitalising the serial killer novel with assured gusto… A new beginning for a major British writer, whose crime debut instantly moves him into the Thomas Harris division'
— THE GUARDIAN

‘Brilliantly plotted, stunningly written … I read this in one go … if this isn't a hit, I'm a monkey's uncle. And I don't think I am’.
— INDEPENDANT ON SUNDAY

‘A absorbing mystery with a chilling denouement’
— SUNDAY TELEGRAPH

‘The Straw Men is a genuinely original thriller that combines the imagination and darkness of his previous work with bolts of nerve-screaming tension … Think “The X-files” meets “Hannibal”.’ — TIME OUT
