The Painted Bride

“Cold-blooded murders follow in the race to the climax. Chalk up another winner—brief, merciless and punchy—for Gallagher.” —Publishers’ Weekly

"Stephen Gallagher’s tense melodrama is spun from the mysterious disappearance of auto dealer Frank Tanner’s wife Carol, the stalled police investigation into Frank’s possible guilt—and the complications ensuing from the obsessive actions of Carol’s burnt-out, former drug-taking younger sister Molly, who knows Frank did away with his wife, and devotes her dwindling energies to protecting the children now in his care and bringing him to justice"—The Washington Post    

“If thriller reading were a sin, Stephen Gallagher would be responsible for my ultimate damnation. His work is fast-paced, well-written, infused with a sense of dark wonder, and altogether fresh.”—Dean R Koontz 

“The finest British writer of bestselling popular fiction since le Carre.” —The Independent

“Since Valley of Lights he has been refining his own brand of psycho-thriller, tapping into the heart of British lowlife with a discomforting knack for charting mental disintegration and a razor-sharp sense of place.”—The Times
