Maxim Jakubowski's view...

A Maxim Jakubowski selected title.

Irish cop DCI Jack Lennon returns for another searing thriller. Suspended from the force following the decidely traumatic events of the previous novels in which he appeared, his assistance is sought when Rea Carlisle inherits a house from an uncle she never knew and discovers a hidden room with a chair, a table and a leather-bound book with locks of hair and victims, a catalogue of victims. With her family opposed to her taking the matter to the police, she contacts Lennon, which soon brings him up against his own foe: DCI Serena Flanagan. Breathless cat and mouse games and terrifying stories unlocked from the past make this a compelling read and confirm the award-winning Neville's place at the top table of crime writing.

If you like Stuart Neville you might also like to read books by Stuart McBride, Simon Kernick and Brian McGilloway.

Who is Maxim Jakubowski

The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. The Final Silence is the latest from a young Irish crime writer whose first novel took the genre by storm. The Celtic onslaught on crime writing continues apace with Neville making a mark as a very individual talent. Apart from a sure grasp of the mechanics of suspense, Neville’s real coup was to present markedly multifaceted (and conflicted) protagonists – prey to ghosts from Ireland’s troubled and violent past. Neville’s meteoric rise since the success of The Twelve has been unstoppable, with such books as Stolen Souls making a mark. In The Final Silence, Rea Carlisle has inherited a home from a relative she never knew. But when clearing out the house, she finds a room that remains stubbornly locked. Inside the room, she finds a leather-bound book with clumps of hair and fingernails – a catalogue of murder victims. Time for the involvement of DI Jack Lennon.

Synopsis

The Final Silence by Stuart Neville

Rea Carlisle has inherited a house from an uncle she never knew. It doesn't take her long to clear out the dead man's remaining possessions, but one room remains stubbornly locked. When Rea finally forces it open she discovers inside a chair, a table - and a leather-bound book. Inside its pages are locks of hair, fingernails: a catalogue of victims. Horrified, Rea wants to go straight to the police but when her family intervene, Rea turns to the only person she can think of: DI Jack Lennon. But Lennon is facing his own problems. Suspended from the force and hounded by DCI Serena Flanagan, the toughest cop he's ever faced, Lennon must unlock the secrets of a dead man's terrifying journal.

Maxim Jakubowski's view on Stuart Neville...

THE TWELVE, Neville’s first novel (titled THE GHOSTS OF BELFAST in the USA) is an outstanding debut about a haunted ex-IRA killer and British undercover agent striving to survive his guilt and a veritable posse of implacable enemies. Harrowing, realistic and full of compassion for the victims of crime and terrorism, this introduces a major new voice to crime writing. An outstanding achievement.
