”Immediately gripping and immensely compelling, Dan O’Shea’s debut novel moves from gritty Chicago streets to the corridors of power with the sure-footedness of a master storyteller. PENANCE is many things — a thriller, a spy story, a complex tale of betrayal and atonement — but it is always a heart-pounding ride that leaves you breathless, and yet allows for unforgettable moments of grace. A must-read.”
Hilary Davidson, author of THE DAMAGE DONE, THE NEXT ONE TO FALL and EVIL IN ALL ITS DISGUISES
“O’Shea’s debut novel Penance was at the top of my “best reads” in 2013. With Greed, just published this month, the author has raised the bar even higher in delivering an outstanding fast-paced thriller again set in Chicago and featuring Detective John Lynch. This time, Lynch has to share the limelight with a new colorful character, Nick Hardin, an ex-Marine and former member of the French Foreign Legion. In attempting to solve a rash of local murders, Lynch and his fellow Chicago detectives have to confront Mafia chieftains, Mexican drug cartels, Iranian terrorists, shadowy American espionage operators and blood diamond smugglers. Will Chicago survive this toxic brew?”
Reviewer Steele Curry
Rotten at the Heart (written as Bartholomew Daniels)
“The writing in Rotten at the Heart is wonderful. Daniels’ use of Elizabethan language, the mixing in of lines and phrasings from Shakespeare’s plays, and his evocative descriptions of Tudor life work together to draw a vivid and exciting picture of Shakespeare’s London and bring the Bard to life.”
“Dan O’Shea is the total package. He writes with enough technical proficiency to keep you trapped in his world and has a purpose, something greater to say than just a story. His subtext comments about the chaotic nature of existence and impossibility to live up to idealism will haunt you throughout your reading and long afterwards. Dan O’Shea writes like Dennis Lehane’s evil brother. His prose is both sensitive and intoxicating.”
