“Devilishly dark…It isn’t often that a mystery-thriller enthralls so completely…Whether you read the tale in the dark night of winter or the haze of a summer sun, be prepared for the chill. The days are dark in Black Country.”
"Once again, Alex Grecian turns loose his formidable powers of description to bring Victorian London to eerie, bustling life. From the prologue that takes place in the underworld beneath the city streets, to the prison break, to the adrenaline-pumping chase scenes, I could see it all before me, and I have to admit that the hair was standing on the back of my neck over and over again. "
"The action is fast-paced and gripping; a real page-turner. The author provides an absorbing blend of 19th-century history and mystery. Grecian certainly knows London, its many streets and buildings, and as a result adds realism to the story. I found the story entertaining and a must-read for mystery aficionados."
“…completely engrossing… fans of the series will bask in the Victorian atmosphere.”
“Jack the Ripper meets his psychopathic equal in this macabre tale of late Victorian England… in this fifth installment about the hunt for England's most famous serial killer… you're in for quite a ride.”
"Time and time again, Alex Grecian proves himself to be a master of the thriller."
"“With his artistry of painting a sense of place and time, Grecian delivers a compelling, twisty story driven by fascinating characters. The Saint of Wolves and Butchers makes breathless, gripping, up-all-night reading.”

Booklist (starred review)
“The Saints of Wolves and Butchers has it all—a vicious old Nazi hiding out in rural America; a tracker hard on his trail; and a State Trooper and single mom with a lot to lose, willing to put it all on the line. Add a hot-engine plot, dialogue that would make Elmore Leonard smile, and some Fast and Furious action and you have the perfect storm of a story: a can’t-put-it-down-until-I find-out-what-happens-next thriller.”
New York Times bestselling author of Sleepers
“With Alex Grecian, you’re in the hands of a professional. Deft prose, a steady drip of suspense, a blood-soaked secret from another time: The Saint of Wolves and Butchers has what you want in a Grecian thriller. My prescription? Purchase and consume immediately."
"Beyond the artwork and the comic panels, the short stories also shine in this first volume and experiment with seamlessly combining prose with concepts and plots structured in comics to create a richer reading experience."
"...this has been a great comic month-in-and-out. It has created a great spin on a character that continues to fascinate to this day. I loved reading these issues each month and cannot wait to delve back in once it’s out in trade. It’s been an adventure I’m glad I’ve been a part of."
