Craig Russell is a British author of crime fiction and thriller novels. He writes the Jan Fabel series as well as the Lennox series. As his Jan Fabel series is set in Hamburg, Germany, Russell is fluent in Germany and possesses an acute interest in post-war German history. His novels often include historical or mythological themes. Craig Russell became a published novelist in with the novel Blood Eagle , which began his Jan Fabel series. People are experiencing visions, seeing angels and having experiences that cannot be explained. A French teenager has seen Joan of Arc being burned at the stake; a New York man dies of malnutrition in his Central Park luxury apartment; a Christian fundamentalist murders a geneticist.
A chilling, classic gothic thriller, set in a remote castle asylum in Czechoslovakia, immediately before the Second World War. Russell has created a truly frightening story, one that gets under your skin slowly, then goes deep, like the tip of a butcher knife. I read the novel one snowy night by the fire, unable to sleep until I finished, then unable to sleep once I had. The brooding backdrop of a Czechoslovakia on the brink of World War II just adds another layer of atmosphere to an already nightmarish read. Russell has created a gripping masterpiece of a thriller! A seasoned writer, Russell keeps the police case moving at a good clip…but nothing to match the ending, which offers more twists than a Chubby Checker album.
