Finland’s finest Sami Airola, has reviewed Brendan Connell’s Miss Homicide Plays The Flute in glowing terms, over at his Rising Shadow website. Sami writes:
“…In my opinion Miss Homicide Plays the Flute is a superb feast of extraordinary storytelling, seductive decadence and experimental strangeness. It’s a gorgeous combination of different elements and nuances that melt together and produce a beautiful and seducing symphony of sublime pleasures and perversions to readers who appreciate reading something out of the ordinary. (By the way, if you truly want to enjoy the excellence of this novel, pour yourself a glass of wine, put a CD of classical music to your CD player and press play, sit in a comfortable chair, lean back and let yourself be seduced by the story.)
If you appreciate quality and good prose and read literary novels, do yourself a favour and read Miss Homicide Plays the Flute immediately. It’s a unique novel about the art of assassination and poisoning, musical instruments and history (Brendan Connell stirs these elements into a perfect mix of strange beauty and irresistable elegance). If you like thrillers, enjoy classical music, love weird stories and are fond of decandence, you won’t be disappointed by Miss Homicide Plays the Flute, because it offers all of these things and much more in an unforgettably weird package. It’s a literary treasure that awaits to be discovered by as many readers as possible.
Our warm thanks to Sami, as to all our other reviewers and critics for taking the time to offer perspectives on our titles.
