'One of the finest multi-author collections in a long time' Sunday Herald. 'We tend to imagine book lovers, librarians and bibliophiles of all stripes as quiet, gentle folk. In Death Sentences, however, book lovers are bludgeoned to death by their precious tomes, crushed by falling bookshelves, shoved down library stairs, or blown to death by a bomb smuggled into their private library' Irish Examiner. 'A treasure chest of bloodthirsty bibliophilia ... A delightful, ingenious, specially commissioned anthology, both hair-raising and playful, packed with baffling plots, unlikely characters, literary references and bookish conundrums' Good Book Guide.
