Sam Millar - Marking the 10th Anniversary of the Good Friday Agreement.

This just in. I learned this morning that Sam Millar's BLOODSTORM has been selected by Easons and The Sunday Times, to mark the 10th Anniversary of the Good Friday Agreement.

So his book will be in the window of all the Eason stores, North and South, as well as featuring on a load of posters.

Congratulations, Sam. We're delighted to hear it.

Of course, this also means he'll have plenty to talk about when we interview him in the very near future. Keep coming back for more.

And have a look at what the critics are saying already...

“Millar is rapidly building a reputation for pacy thrillers in the crime noir genre. This latest offering, Bloodstorm, will not disappoint his expanding fan base. Set in his hometown of Belfast, this is a violent tale of murder and revenge told in brutal prose that makes no concessions to the faint-hearted. Millar has a gift for sharp dialogue and a lively imagination to match. He keeps the action rolling from the get-go with a rapid expanding plot that quickly head-butts the reader into submission. Those looking for a comfortable read should be warned. Karl Kane is no gentlemanly Hercules Poirot. Even Sam Spade would be shocked at some of the company Karl Kane keeps and the situations he finds himself in.”

Irish Independent

“Karl Kane takes no prisoners – literally as well as figuratively – in this dark, page-turner of a book. Millar’s ability to tap into the dark recesses of the human mind is brilliantly constructed, page after nerve shattering page. Bloodstorm is a triumph from a master storyteller. With Bloodstorm and Karl Kane, Millar has given us his best work since On The Brinks and The Redemption Factory. Highly recommended.”

Irish News

“Gripping and arrestingly violent, Bloodstorm is a well-written thriller with its share of disturbing insights into the dark side of the human psyche.”

Irish Mail on Sunday

“Millar whips up a storm in this brilliant, fast paced thriller. Gritty and gripping, Bloodstorm, is a real page-turner – and indeed a chapter-turner. Anti-hero Karl Kane, is the most original private investigator to grace a book, in years. The promise of more to come from this chilling and dark series should keep Millar’s growing army of fans content - at least for the time being…”

Andersonstown News

“Bloodstorm is a powerful, relentless page-turner of a book, leaving you gasping for more…”
