Praise for The Silver Hearted: "David McConnell is the most fascinating, original and exotic author I've come around in years. The atmosphere he generates in THE SILVER HEARTED is imbued with fear, mystery, lust, sleaze, jealousy and attractiveness. A constant undertow of violence will be at work in his narrative's suspense. The world he creates is familiar, but is in the exact same time a kind of nightmare. He's by turns grotesquely macabre and sublime. I can't recommend this haunting, lovely book too highly." -Patrick McGrath
