Author Christopher Conlon’s debut novel, MIDNIGHT ON MOURN STREET, was my favorite novel of the year. This second novel, A MATRIX OF ANGELS, is just as powerful and heartbreaking and in my top 10 for 2011. Conlon’s writing walks a fine line between a dark drama, a thriller, and horror. It is consistently addictive, engaging, and beautifully written. The author’s poetry background is the foundation for his smooth prose and carefully constructed sentences. Conlon has wonderful character instincts and writes like a polished veteran. He has quickly climbed to the top of my must read list and is now one of my favorite authors. With back-to-back efforts like this, I am simply blown away by this man’s talent. This novel gets one of my highest recommendations. As a bonus, it also includes the short story that the novel was based on. Buy it. You won’t be disappointed.
