Bad Men - John Connolly ... Sanctuary were betrayed by one of their own, and slaughtered. Now a band of killers has returned to Sanctuary to seek revenge on a young woman and her son. When Moloch's team of picked killers seizes a long-awaited opportunity to free him, reunion with his wife is the next priority. Working their way through her friends, relatives and contacts, they leave a chilling trail of death and mutilation. The emotionless assassin Shepherd is bad enough, but irascible Tell has a hair-trigger temper and kills unnecessarily (eg: a bystander talking too loudly on his mobile phone), while the eerily beautiful young man Willard does it lingeringly and for fun. Even Moloch, who coldly and effortlessly dominates this awful crew, is unnerved by Willard.

Bad Men was a book that had been sitting on my shelf for a very long time waiting to be read. I don't know what it was, but every time I went to select a new book to start, I kept picking it up, reading the back cover before deciding to put it down and read another instead. Possibly it was the subject matter, possibly the fact that here was an author I had never read before. I've no idea where my reluctance to read it came from, but it was ill-founded, because once I did start to read it, I couldn't put it down. Bad Men is a multi-stranded book which kicks off with a brutal massacre on a remote Maine island in the 17th century. Fast forward to the present day ... Read the complete review

Being a big fan of John Connolly, I know sometimes it seems like I'm a big fan of every writer I review but thats only because I love so many good quality authors, I picked this novel up second hand not expecting very much at all- at least I can say I wasn't disappointed on that score. Better known for his Charlie Parker novels, this is the third book Connolly has written which breaks away from his standard series of detective novels with a very dark twist- though this is less of a break than his adult fairy-tale, THE BOOK OF LOST THINGS, or his short story collection, NOCTURNES, the first of which was a bore and the latter of which was surprisingly ...
