Editorial Reviews

Review

"A stylishreimagining of the psychic mystery genre. The engrossing result feels like an ESP-themed mash-up of The Sopranos and The Wire as scripted by Quentin Tarantino." -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review). Also selected by Kirkus as a Best Book of 2012.

"Lay Saints, with its realistic and complex cast of protagonistsand the added bonus of wild talents up for exploit, is a powerful readthat is gritty, honest, gripping and unpredictable." -- The Midwest Book Review

"Adam Connell's Lay Saints is a sleek homage to noir with a fantasy twist. It's sleazy, it's violent, it's honest, and it's a damn good read." -- BlueInk Review (starred review)

"Fans of the genre will find a lot to like here--particularly the snappy dialogue and solid world-building." -- Publishers Weekly

About the Author

I was born in 1973 and grew up on LongIsland. Disregard what many people have said; Long Island wasn't aterrible place to grow up during the 70s and 80s. My parents and my sister loved me. But I was the least popular kid at school and Blah Blah Blah. You'veheard this shit before. Hell, maybe you even lived it, too, like me. What's important is that I loved to read. As I got into science fictionand fantasy and horror, when I became enthralled with genre books mylocal library was starved for, I got part-time jobs in Junior High andHigh School so I could buy the books I needed, that I craved, thatnourished me.

I went to NYU to study Literature. To study books simply because there was nothing more I wanted to learn everything about.
