This is Belfast-born Fennell's first thriller, and you couldn't ask for a more assured if startlingly graphic and gory debut * IRISH INDEPENDENT *
A tense-as-hell high-body count page turner, but a rarer thing too - one that's also full of genuine warmth and humanity * William Shaw *
Have just finished this hair-raisingly dark thriller . . . you won't be able to put it down * Araminta Hall *
A blend of Lynda La Plante and Thomas Harris * CRIME TIME *
A stunning start to what promises to be a fantastic new series. The Art of Death is layered, twisty and so deliciously dark. A hero for our age; DI Grace Archer is fierce and relentless, intuitive and driven, yet underneath the mask she wears, she's also surprisingly vulnerable and just a little bit damaged. I can't wait to see what she gets up to next * M. W. Craven, winner of the CWA Gold Dagger *
A serial killer thriller with the darkest of hearts, David Fennell more than earns his place at the crime fiction table with this superb exploration of a psychopath with the creepiest modus operandi I've read in a long time, and a flawed yet brilliant detective * Fiona Cummins *
A hugely compelling procedural thriller set in London. Unsettling, fast-paced, suspenseful and gripping. Loved the way the cityscape was rendered. Excellent * Will Dean *
A serial killer classic in the making, The Art of Death is neatly plotted, perfectly paced and brilliantly characterised with a clever concept that hooks you in and holds you tight, right up to the extremely satisfying final page * Susi Holliday *
Chilling, unsettling and wonderfully atmospheric, it grips from first page to last. I hope we'll be hearing much more from Fennell and his brilliant detective, Grace Archer * Brian McGilloway *
A gritty, dark thriller. Perfect for fans of Chris Carter * Olivia Kiernan *
