Praise and Reviews:
"Angel of Death is a very powerful novel, dealing intrinsically with life and death and the ugly side of murder. These subjects are handled very well, albeit without pulling any punches in the graphic descriptions. This novel ... sucks you inside the mind of a serial killer, as close as you ever really want to get to one ... A very impressive, powerful story that grabs you, sucks you in, throws you around and dumps you out, dazed but richer for the ride. 4**** "- Science Fiction & Fantasy Books
"Angry Robot are evil... I can say that really, you should not read this book when you have deadlines. You will miss the deadlines... King turns a lot of current popular themes on their head. Or he eviscerates them. He plays with the suspense of a murder-based thriller and with ideas that appear in Supernatural and even with Paranormal Romance... This is neither a comfort read nor a slow read. It's a fabulous book, but don't pick it up when you're supposed to be doing other things. It's after midnight and those dishes are still unwashed and those papers are still unsorted."- Gill Polack
"I found Angel of Death to be an utterly masterful novel - one of those novels that truly only comes along very, very rarely. And it's still echoing through my head - I replay scenes, hear the dialogue, see the imagery, feel the emotions... I haven't read anything quite like this before; it stunned me completely, and I truly hope that this book finds its way into the hands of many, many people."- Fantasy & SciFi Weblog
