Publisher's Summary

In 1939 in the small, rural community of Augusta Falls, Georgia, 12-year-old Joseph Vaughan learns of the brutal assault and murder of a young girl, the first in a series of killings that will plague the community over the next decade. Joseph and his friends are determined to protect the town from the evil in their midst and they form "the Guardians" to watch over the community. But the murderer evades them and they watch helplessly as one child after another is taken. Even when the killings cease, a shadow of fear follows Joseph and, 50 years later, he must confront the nightmare.

Critic Reviews

"There aren't nearly enough beautifully written novels that are also great mysteries. Like The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and Smilla's Sense of Snow, A Quiet Belief in Angels is one of them." (James Patterson)
"A Quiet Belief in Angels is a beautiful and haunting book. This is a tour de force from R. J. Ellory." (Michael Connelly)

One my Top 5 Audio listens of all time.

If Gillian Flynn and James Lee Burke had a kid that grew up a writer, this might be the book produced. Beautifully written with a storyline that kept me guessing until the final pages. Ended all to quickly. Dave Robicheaux in a period piece and a plotline that extends the length of his lifetime.

Narrator gets a 10/10 and is a top 5 narration as well, ranking with Stephen Hoye in Skinny Dip and McKintys books read by Gerald Doyle


If you like Burke, Connolly, Gillian Flynn, or Stieg Larsson you will be pleased to have downloaded this book!

Over a year later and story still sticks with me

I'm writing this review almost 2 years after listening to this book. I have recommended to it many who don't want to read or listen because they say "I'm not religious." This is far from a religious story and has nothing to do with it. This story of the childhood and growing up of a young man in the South with the background of a serial killer is unusual. After finishing this listen I wanted to read something about the author and his story was quite a jolt. It is probably best not to read about the author until after listening to the book because you'll be amazed at his own story and wonder how and why he wrote this.
