Gayla's only hope is about to turn into her worst nightmare. Tricked into coming to Ireland with the offer of a good job, all Gayla wants to do now is run. As far and as fast as she can. Because her captors are close behind her, and they want her dead - no matter what. Two people are hunting her...Crime lord Arturus Strazdas has never had a woman he hasn't paid for and never had a friend who wasn't afraid of him. Now his brother is dead, and he's determined to find - and destroy - the woman responsible...And neither one will rest till she is dead.

Reviews

'Stolen Souls is a nightmare story in the most noir place on earth, told by an exceptional talent. Crime fiction doesn't get much better than that' -- Lee Child

'Stolen Souls offers harrowing, uncompromising suspense' -- Val McDermid

'The Twelve was an astonishing debut and Collusion proved it was no fluke. Now with Stolen Souls, Stuart Neville has raised the bar even higher. Gripping, compassionate and packed with wonderfully realised characters, this is a book that will stay with you long after you finish it. Just three books in and Stuart Neville is already a crime-writing star' -- Mark Billingham

'Stolen Souls is another winner from a a man who's rapidly establishing himself as a top-notch thriller writer. Great stuff' -- Simon Kernick

'Neville creates a break-neck pace as he switches between the story's different strands in punchy chapters...good, grisly fun' -- Siobhan Murphy Metro

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.
