Praise for The Countess
“A unique perspective on Bathory’s life…The Countess walks a fine line between being a repulsive story of murder and fore and a tale of a woman defending her home and honor. Johns expertly manages that balancing act.” –Associated Press
“Johns’s creepily enticing second novel…is a carefully researched story, gothic in tone and grimly atmospheric, with subtly handled psychology and an initially unassuming tone. Unlike most serial killer stories, this rewards patience and close reading.” —Publishers Weekly
“Realistic and historically accurate…Its understated treatment of an infamous character offers excellent potential for book club discussion.” –Library Journal
