Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

At the start of this powerful first of a new crime series from Irish author Millar (Dark Souls), wild dogs finish off a battered gang-rape victim, left for dead in a unused quarry outside Belfast one summer day in 1978. Decades later, someone is picking off the men responsible for this outrage. At the behest of a shadowy employer, PI Karl Kane investigates the death of one of the rapists, whose body turns up in the city's Botanic Gardens. Flashbacks to the 1960s, when a young boy witnessed his mother's murder and narrowly escaped death at her killer's hands, help build suspense as their relevance to the present-day murders slowly and chillingly comes into focus. Millar adds police corruption to the mix to make Kane's search for the truth even more troublesome. While some minor plot elements may strike readers as contrived (e.g., the escape of some wild pigs leads to significant evidence), the consistently tough prose should help gain Millar fans in the U.S. with a taste for the hard-boiled. (Oct.)

    A brilliant page-turner

    One of the best crime books to come out of Ireland in years. Bloodstorm is the first Karl Kane book, featuring down-in-his-luck PI, Karl Kane. It has been critically acclaimed - and rightly so. To call it a trilling page-turner would be an understatement. Guaranteed to leave you feeling uneasy as you turn each page. Totally original and brilliant.

    Noir at its darkest best

    Bloodstorm is the first Karl Kane book, and for those not yet familiar with Millar's dark noir, this is the book where it all began. Get this book to start your collection, because believe me, it is totally addictive. Humour and horror with the best writer in noir. Doesn't get much better.

    Gritty. Dirty. bloody.

    This is a very gritty crime book from crime writer Sam Millar. I have to confess it left me at times drained because of the violence, but it reflects crime in all its dark form.
