Maps of Hell


‘This is an excellent book! It starts off mysteriously and keeps you guessing right until the end. Well-written and fast paced, Maps of Hell has a surprising ability to eat into your psyche…downright chilling.’ Eurocrime

'A superb action-packed thriller. Fast-paced throughout, readers will be spellbound as the hero struggles to survive, elude the enemy that includes cops, and seek his beloved…Paul Johnston affirms once again that he is one of today's best thriller writers' (*****five stars) The Mystery Gazette

'A harrowing follow-up to previous stories featuring Matt Wells, this one is told effectively through flashbacks and several points of view -- including Matt's first-person observations. At times explicitly violent, it's never gratuitous.' (****four stars) Romantic Times

‘Johnston’s long pushed the boundaries of the crime/ thriller genre, giving us otherworldly plots.’ (xxxx four stars)
Daily Mirror

‘One hundred pages in and three storylines dance around each other, competing in the twisted terror stakes…Prepare to be transfixed until you discover the devastating answer.’ Daily Record

‘Frantic and engaging…Johnston has captured Matt’s fear and confusion in a way that’s so vivid it’s almost palpable…Begin your journey into the mind of one of the most creative – and criminally under the radar – thriller writers working today’. Savannah Morning News/ Savannah Now

‘Paul Johnston is a writer of genuine quality.’ Crime writer Martin Edwards
