Sam Millar's Bloodstorm went straight in at number 3 in today's best-sellers (Source: Belfast Telegraph/Easons).
Easons have said that it will probably top the list next week because of new sales coming in.
And he's still impressing the critics.
“Acclaimed Northern Irish author Sam Millar has delved yet again into the murky depths of his imagination and come up with Bloodstorm, a dark thriller set in Belfast. It resembles its predecessors in its brutal language and bleak, darkly comic undercurrents. And in the fact that it’s hard to put down.
Bloodstorm is powerful and unsettling writing, that seeps into your bones like Belfast rain. As a Belfast native, it gave me quite a buzz (and sometimes a shiver) to recognise the various landmarks, speech patterns and self-effacing humour of the city and its inhabitants. Recommended reading by the NI Tourist Board this is not, but as a straight-talking crime thriller, it’s at the top...”Shelley Marsden, The Irish World, London
I'm five chapters in and already agree with Marsden. "...brutal language and bleak... darkly comic undercurrents"
