As a rule I don't like mysteries and I don't like series. Having than been said, if more mysteries were like this one, I'd read more mysteries. This book is great in so many ways and to think, this is Connolly's debut novel, does that mean he gets better? Back to singing Every Dead Thing's praises...the plot is taut, there are sort of two mysteries in one book, it's long at almost 500 pages, but the pacing is great. The characters are terrific, interesting and immensely likeable (or hate-able), but either way fleshed out enough and personable enough to elicit an emotion. I found myself thoroughly involved. The writing is incredible, flawless prose with an occasional turn of phrase that can break your heart. I had my suspicions about the killers, but I wasn't sure, the mystery aspect was well executed IMO, some of the scenes were quite horrific and suited to depraved tastes of a horror fan. What can I say, I'm impressed, I'm won over, I'm a fan. I highly recommend this book.
