Ratlines by Stuart Neville – review

Nerd favorite Stuart Neville ups his game with Ratlines, a historical thriller set in the early sixties in Ireland.  Coming off his epic Belfast trilogy (Ghosts of Belfast, Collusion, Stolen Souls), Ratlines is a bit of a departure for the author but thankfully no less blisteringly badass. The novel follows Irish military cop Albert...

Collusion by Stuart Neville – review

The Ghosts of Belfast was massively praised by everyone and their third-cousin-thrice-removed in 2009 and rightfully so.  Stuart Neville’s debut combined supernatural horror and crime seamlessly while managing to be endlessly entertaining, gloriously dark and, you know, about something, said something being the after effects of the Troubles in Northern Ireland.  Like all arts and entertainment coverage,...

The “Troubles” in Northern Ireland have spawned many novels, but none as intense and different as Ghosts. Based on the past efforts of Republicans to force unification with Eire and the conflicts between Catholics and Protestants in the North, the novel focuses on the torment of Gerry Fegan who has, as an assassin on...

The only late night host that matters is Craig Ferguson; the only late night host that reads is Craig Ferguson; the only late night host that loves crime fiction is Craig Ferguson. Is the first related to the other two? Methinks so. Craig Ferguson read The Ghosts of Belfast and loved it so much...
