Review:

A truly terrifying debut novel * My Weekly * This is a strong, spell-binding crime novel that shows much promise of dark treasures to come from this author * Crimesquad * The Advent Killer is both well written and entertaining and I found myself racing to find out what would happen next, and who the killer was * crimefictionlover.com * If Police Procedurals with a strong female main character are your bag, grab a copy of The Advent Killer ... actually... buy a few - they'd make a great Christmas gift for any Crime Fiction lover -- Liz Mistry * thecrimewarp.blogspot.co.uk * Gunn cleverly builds suspense throughout his fantastic debut novel...The Advent Killer was a well written read from this debut novelist, who shows a great promise of things to come. * shaysbookshelf.blogspot.co.uk * If you're looking for a gripping, gruesome, fast-paced page-turner that will keep you guessing right up until the killer's identity is revealed...then The Advent Killer is for you. I found myself happily racing through it in a couple of sittings, and I'd defy anyone who picked it up not to want to do the same * joanne-sheppard.com * A good debut * karennaylor.blogspot.co.uk * This book was brilliant from start to finish and a proper page-turner. I finished this in a couple of days and loved every second of reading -- Jay Bancroft * thosereviewsthough.blogspot.co.uk * Five stars. A really awesome book...Would highly recommend. Had me at the edge of my seat, great detail to make you feel like you are in the characters shoes. Powerfully written * anfalkhaliq.weebly.com *
