News: Apostle Rising has sold foreign rights to Alexandra, the largest publishing house in Hungary. Reviews: "Apostle Rising by Richard Godwin has to be one of the best books I've read in ages. Fantastically written, fast-paced and terrifying. Just how I like them..." SUNDERLAND ECHO "The suspense and mystery are superb; you never understand the emotional depravity until the end. It is an end you never see coming." SEATTLE PI MAGAZINE "An arresting and cleverly plotted police procedural married to gothic horror - Apostle Rising is an unusual and memorable crime story." CRIME TIME MAGAZINE "This is daring stuff from Godwin - Rare for a crime novel, it has a lyrical, almost poetic style, beautifully written and well constructed." BOOKGEEKS MAGAZINE "A novel that is a must for fans of Val McDermid's Tony Hill and Ian Rankin's Rebus..." NEW BOOKS MAGAZINE "Richard Godwin's 'Apostle Rising' is a police procedural and psychological thriller of the first order. If you love Ken Bruen and John Connolly, Godwin's the man you'll be following next." SCOTT PHILLIPS, author of 'The Ice Harvest' "A brilliant new cop duo with a plot to die for and a killer that will terrify you." SHEILA QUIGLEY, author of 'Thorn In My Side' "Engrossing, exquisite, and extra-scary. Apostle Rising is not just another detective novel. It is also not for the faint of heart. It is a noir tour-de-force that will leave you breathless and teary-eyed." VINCENT ZANDRI, author of 'As Catch Can' and 'The Remains'
