'Beautiful and haunting... A tour de force' MICHAEL CONNELLY
'There aren't nearly enough beautifully written novels that are also great mysteries... A Quiet Belief in Angels is one of them' JAMES PATTERSON
A TOP TEN SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER
A RICHARD AND JUDY BOOK CLUB PICK
AN AWARD-WINNING SUSPENSE THRILLER

Joseph Vaughan's life has been dogged by tragedy. Growing up in the 50s, his small rural community was shaken by a series of killings of young girls. Barely a teenager himself, Joseph was determined to try to protect his community and classmates from the killer.

But despite banding together with his friends as 'The Guardians', he was powerless to prevent more murders - and no one was ever caught.

Ten years later, one of his neighbours is found hanging from a rope, with articles from the dead girls around him, and the killings finally cease. But the past won't stay buried - for it seems that the real murderer still lives and is killing again. And the secret of his identity lies in Joseph's own history...

MEDIA REVIEWS

A beautiful and haunting book. This is a tour de force from R.J. Ellory - Michael Connelly

A rich, powerful, evocative novel of great psychological depth - Jonathan Kellerman

R.J. Ellory is a uniquely gifted, passionate, and powerful writer, and the quality of his prose - every word, every sentence - lifts A Quiet Belief in Angels far above genre - Alan Furst

There aren't nearly enough beautifully written novels, that are also great mysteries. Like The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and Smilla's Sense of Snow, A Quiet Belief in Angels is one of them - James Patterson

A mesmerizing tale whose intrigue will pull you from one page to the next without pause, casting you into the gloom of dread and the shadow of grief until you reach the climactic end. R.J. Ellory's remarkable talent for probing the unknown establishes him as the master of the genre. The perfect author to read late into the night - Clive Cussler

Ellory is English, but his evocation of life in the deep South is richly drawn and deeply detailed. His characters are well-developed, and portions of the books ably mimic great southern writers, allowing readers to savor both the words and the images they offer - BOOKLIST

Well, I sat up until somewhere past 4.00 this morning, and I finished this book in one sitting. About halfway through I went and made some tea, and I sat quietly for a moment and wondered whether this was in fact the... More
