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 and pristine prose with history and archeology in her stellar fourth crime novel… [The Book of Killowen] offers food for thought that persists beyond the immediate 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.
"Fascinating.... The nature of language and love...winds through Hart's plot in intriguing and surprising ways."
“Vivid and compelling.”
