  • A grand, nightmarish page-turner that will have you riveted no matter how much you’d prefer to look away.

    Book People
  • The Devil's Detective has the capability to be a real breakout novel, one of those rare breeds of a horror novel that manages to escape from the genre and appeal to much wider audience. The balance between the genre trappings and tropes of both horror and crime is perfectly balanced.
