Summary
A darkly glittering collection of Northern Irish noir by Stuart Neville, Los Angeles Times Book Prize-winning author

Since his debut novel, the modern classic The Ghosts of Belfast , was published a decade ago, Stuart Neville has written nine other critically acclaimed novels and achieved international recognition as one of crime fiction's great living writers.

Now for the first time Neville offers readers a collection of his short fiction--twelve chilling stories that traverse and blend the genres of noir, horror, and speculative fiction, and which bring the history and lore of Neville's native Northern Ireland to life. The Traveller concludes with the long-awaited eponymous novella, the companion piece to The Ghosts of Belfast and Collusion .

Complete with a foreword from Irish crime fiction legend John Connolly, this volume is the perfect indulgence for fans of ghost stories and noir, and is a must-have for devotees of Neville's prizewinning Belfast novels.

Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Set mostly in the author's native Northern Ireland, the 13 tales of horrific crimes and terrifying horrors in this splendid collection from Edgar finalist Neville (The Final Silence) are divided into two sections. Highlights from the first, "New Monsters," include "Coming In on Time," about the anguish of anticipating the unlikely return of a mother; "The Green Lady," in which ghosts and a legendary woman lure a youngster fishing for sticklebacks into trouble; and "London Safe," in which unthinkable consequences await a boy who grows up to find his father living another life in England. "Old Friends," the second section, brings back characters from Neville's novels, notably reprehensible Gerry Fegan of The Ghosts of Belfast, who appears in four stories. The captivating title novella resurrects a presumably dead Fegan as a contract killer hired to avenge the deaths of twin sons. In the tense "Faith," a priest agrees to commit murder for a parishioner; in the disquieting "The Craftsman," Albert and Celia Ryan of Ratlines settle past debts. Each entry turns on an unexpected ending. This chilling assortment of Northern Irish noir is not to be missed. Agent: Nat Sobel, Sobel Weber Assoc. (Oct.)"
