Media Reviews

"Starred Review. A powerful tale of revenge, violence, and redemption ... 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…" - Publishers Weekly

"Starred Review. Riveting....Neville's deft style builds mounting tension, and his characters, all tragic figures, are skillfully developed....The violence, administered up close and personal—and the rage of those who commit it—is almost operatic. A feast for thriller fans." —Booklist

"Starred Review. Neville’s sophomore effort is just as well written and just as violent as his debut, winner of the LA Times book prize for best crime fiction 2009. Neville creates sympathy for his characters in the midst of violence and betrayal and reveals Northern Ireland as a country still under the effects of decades of terror." - Library Journal
