Review

"Absorbing...The murder mystery is solved, after its startling fashion, in due time---but not before Mr. Black has worked his lyrical magic at fine length, in scenes that unfold with a poet's grace."--"The Wall Street Journal
"
"Sophisticated...[Black] is arguably one of the finest prose stylists writing in English today."--"The Wire
"
"It is doubtful that anyone can write as well as Benjamin Black when it comes to a psychological mystery."--"The Washington Times"

"["Holy Orders"] starts and ends as strongly as the best of the Quirkes."--"St. Louis Post-Dispatch"

"Outstanding...[Black] has turned in his most complex plot yet in "Holy Orders.""--"The Star-Ledger" (New Jersey)

"Gripping, terrific...Although it shares the vivid settings, evocative mood, and striking characters of the earlier Quirke novels, "Holy Orders" has a tighter, more intricate plot."--"Tampa Bay Times
"
"Even if Gabriel Byrne weren't starring in a new BBC series based on the Quirke novels by Benjamin Black (John Banville's alter ego), fans will be clamoring for this latest in the popular series."--"Library Journal" ("Barbara's Picks" for August 2013 fiction)
