Praise For The Book of Killowen…
Can the arcane science and lore of the Irish "bog people," who often died alone and in agony, be fuel for a mystery that actually does what The Da Vinci Code tried to do? A thousand times yes, if Erin Hart's storytelling witchery is at work. Intelligent, eerie, utterly compelling.
-Jacquelyn Mitchard, author of The Deep End of the Ocean and What We Saw At Night
“Hart’s foray into soggy Killowen has a rock-solid foundation of musical language and deft plotting.”
Hart combines powerful insights into human nature andpristine prose with history and archeology in her stellar fourth crime novel… [TheBook of Killowen] offers food for thought that persists beyond theimmediate thrill of a well-told tale.”
"A textured, multifaceted plot that holds the reader from beginning to end. And a high energy,
exciting finale [that] only adds to the pleasure. Another strong entry in an outstanding series."
THE BOOK OF KILLOWEN is as much a treasure as the archeological marvels the peat preserves. It leaves the reader satisfied, yet yearning for the next adventure of this likeable pair of sleuths.
