The Final Silence by Stuart Neville
  

Lovereading view...

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. ~ Maxim Jakubowski

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.

I love Lovereading because I get to read great books and then get to tell everybody how good they are.

Sally Doel

Their sending me my first book to review 18 months ago re-awakened my fondness for reading, since then I have purchased some real gems.

Barry Griffiths

My favourite thing about is the 'like for like' page this has really introduced me to some good reads! That and lots of honest reviews.

Sam Lewis

The selections are so varied and the reader reviews are so helpful. A fantastic website for those who love books.

Ann Quintilla

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Jen Rainbow

Because of Lovereading I have broadened my reading horizons with some really great books that I probably would never have chosen myself.
