Editorial Reviews


Matthew O'Connell combines ancient Japanese folklore with modern-day life in this fast-paced mystery.  O'Connell beautifully and vividly describes the Japanese cityscapes, food and culture; for example. The main characters are likeable, caring and believable. As this story pitting myth against reality unwinds, murder, suicide, deceit and Meiko's clever grandmother conspire to make it an indelible page-turner. - Blueink Review    
Spirit of the Fox is a gripping, culturally immersed mystery.

Matthew O'Connell's intriguing and compelling mystery, Spirit of the Fox, draws on the culture and history of Japan.

Atmospheric descriptions of Japan's spiritual landscape help to set the scene. Breaking with form, the novel gives readers much more information than any one character possesses through expository scenes that implicate the culprit early on. The technique is both frustrating and delightful, drawing connections that the characters themselves cannot yet make.

The appearance of Hana as a character is jarring and unclear; the revelation of the mystery speeds up the story. Once Hana is established as a character, her schemes are gut-wrenching and impressive. The resolution of the mystery is deliberately unclear, but satisfying and appropriate.

The writing is precise; descriptions are terse, moving quickly between action and dialogue, with some mouthwatering descriptions of food and drink coming between. - Clarion Review
Spirit of the Fox is thrilling, captivating and will take your breath away. - Chicago Tribune
