Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* Sectarian hatreds and an assassin's quest for absolution were at the heart of Neville's brilliant debut, The Ghosts of Belfast (2009). In this riveting sequel, collusion, dating back decades between and among Catholic and Protestant paramilitaries, the Royal Ulster Constabulary's Special Branch, Britain's MI5, and British Army Intelligence, is the cornerstone. Ulster police detective Jack Lennon is caught in the middle of the sectarian hatred and the psychopathic desire for revenge that live on in Belfast, even in peacetime. Fearing for their lives, Jack's daughter, six-year-old Ellen, and her mother, Jack's former lover, have disappeared. Lennon's superiors tell him to stop searching for his daughter, but Ellen is all he has in the world. Her trail leads him to the collusion that helps fan the flames of hatred in Northern Ireland. Lennon goes rogue in order to protect Ellen and her mother, and he forms an edgy alliance with the terrifying IRA assassin Gerry Fegan, the main character in The Ghosts of Belfast. Neville's deft style builds mounting tension, and his characters, all tragic figures, are skillfully developed. The collusion he describes sounds all too plausible; it's devious and endemic enough to impress even descendants of the infamous Borgias. The violence, administered up close and personal and the rage of those who commit it is almost operatic. A feast for thriller fans.--Gaughan, Thomas Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Irish author Neville follows his stunning debut, The Ghosts of Belfast, with an even more powerful tale of revenge, violence, and redemption. Collusion among Loyalists, IRA members, and the cops stymie the efforts of Det. Insp. Jack Lennon to find his former lover, Marie McKenna, and their daughter, Ellen, who've been targeted by Belfast crime boss Bull O'Kane. Jack finds an unlikely ally in former paramilitary killer Gerry Fegan, who knows that his murderous actions at a border farm where O'Kane was wounded and the gangster's son died have put mother and daughter at risk. Neville rides the perfect Celtic storm in an action-packed, cerebral thriller with fully realized characters and an insider's view of the ever-shifting politics of Northern Ireland, where the "peace boom" has also brought hordes of investors. Jack and Gerry emerge as two distinctly complicated antiheroes, neither of whom has illusions about himself. (Oct.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
