Pressestimmen

'Sullivan writes superbly ... Uniquely scary' -- Literary Review on THE PURIFICATION CEREMONY 'A moving and almost mystical thriller' -- Val McDermid, Manchester Evening News on THE PURIF 'Unnerving and un-put-downable' -- Joseph R. Garber, author of Vertical Run on THE PU 'Intense, frightening, very well-written ... will keep you riveted ... superb' -- John Sandford, author of SUDDEN PREY on THE PURIFI

Synopsis

On the eve of his 40th birthday, Patrick Gallager, a New York documentary film producer, retreats to the mountainous river regions of Central Vermont to get away from his faltered past life, to fish, and to research the cannonisation of Father D'Angelo, a priest who witnessed his community ravaged by an epidemic. In the swallows of the river, Gallager's line catches on a submerged body and in the search for clues in a line of horrific murders, Gallager discovers a community haunted by the sins of their ancestors.

Ever since his wife divorced him, Patrick Gallagher has been in a depressing funk. Making things even worse from his perspective, his spouse is remarrying someone else on Patrick's fortieth birthday. The day before the nuptials, Patrick travels to isolated Lawton, Vermont to research a story on Father D'Angelo. The current local Catholic representative, Monsignor McCall leads a drive to beatify the deceased D'Angelo who allegedly performed healing miracles over eighty years ago.
In Lawton, Patrick rents a cabin from recovering alcoholic Andie Nightingale. Not too long after that, Patrick discovers the mutilated corpse of a town resident with a note by someone calling themselves Charon. Soon another murdered body is found that appears to be the work of Charon. The maniac kills more people. Andie assists Patrick as he tries to uncover the identity of a serial killer whose motives date back eight decades.
GHOST DANCE is a stunningly powerful novel that simply awes the audience with author Mark T. Sullivan's writing prowess. The story line consists of two tales merged into one delightful plot. Mr. Sullivan provides much insight into modern day Lawton on the one hand and into its ugly history on the other. The audience fully comprehends how the past impacts the present. The final icing is the persuasiveness that an afterlife exists, which allows for the redemption of Patrick's soul. This terrific tale deserves wide readership.

A finely composed contemporary thriller that unravels a century old mystery. The protagonists are battered, believable members of the baby boom generation, who find themselves having to match wits with a frightening crew of townspeople intent on cover-up of old crimes, and the very deepest evil. Native American religion, a priest up for sainthood, twisted sex, a psychopathic misfit, and dreams and visions from beyond - somehow it all seems to work. The title of this book first captured my attention, as in the past few months the Ghost Dance has appeared in two other pieces of my reading: RavenShadow and Garden in the Dunes, both of which Mamalinda has also reviewed on Amazon, in case your next stop is Wounded Knee.

An Spannung und Dramatik steht dieses Werk dem Bestseller "Purification Ceremony" (Die Jägerin) in nichts nach. Erstklassige Literatur!!!

Ouch. 1. Mai 2002
Von sfobos - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
To begin, I loved THE PURIFICATION CEREMONY. The taut suspense, muscular, adrenalized prose and delicious blend of action/mysticism were a wonderful surprise, and on finishing it I immediately hunted down a used copy of GHOST DANCE. Yikes. To paraphrase the previous reviewer, I can't believe this is the work of the same author. Sullivan once again walks into action/mysticism territory, only to immediately fall flat on his face, break his nose and then proceed to stumble blindly for several hundred pages.
I can't recall the last book I read where the writing was this awkward and forced. Everything from the name of the heroine (full name: Andromeda Nightengale... yeah, that just flows off the tongue) on forward seems the product of a writer trying desperately to replicate a successful formula without the benefit of real inspiration or, for that matter, an interesting story to tell. "Hmmm... what should I do next. I know: CIA assassins! No, no, wait -- I'll have my protagonists stumble into a cave and find some valuable piece of evidence... again. Or I could just give them another feverish, mystical vision. Nobody's tried that before!"
Why did I actually finish this book? I had 4 hours to kill on a plane, and it was either this or try to lipread "Gosford Park." I'm not sure I made the right decision. THE PURIFICATION CEREMONY was good enough to make me curious about Mr. Sullivan's future efforts, but GHOST DANCE is about as painful a mis-step as you'll ever encounter in print.

Whoa, This Is Not What I Was Expecting! 21. Januar 2001
Von Michael Butts - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I read The Purification Ceremony by Mark Sullivan a few days ago. I was expecting more of the same type of story line, action, chase the bad guys and kill him. Not that all this is not in this book, it is packed full of it. I wasn't expecting the duel story line. What a wonderful surprise the history story line is. Again, I hung on to every word that Mr. Sullivan wrote in this tight plot. Ghost Dance is more complex than The Purification Ceremony. The author does a great job at weaving everything together. I loved the visions, ghost, etc. I love this type of story any way. You can never out run the past. Mr. Sullivan does a great job of explaining Native American lore and how it intertwines with modern believes. I thank Mark Sullivan for putting so much time and effort into this story. It was great! This is what reading is all about, entertaining the reader. I highly recommended this book. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

REALLY fun and scary book to read! 2. Februar 2004
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I loved this book! I read this during my first year of college and had such a great time with it that I actually found myself late to classes because I just couldn't put it down! It was really a psychologically terrifying novel! I haven't read a lot of books where I was so deeply involved with the characters and so into the plot! I really loved this book. I don't understand the negative reviews because I have also read the Purification Ceremony and thought this book was much better! Read this book!!!! It's the perfect book for reading during a cold, winters night sitting by the fire! I loved it!
