The premise (a Republican assassin killing again to appease ghosts) seemed far fetched, but the story is well crafted and superbly narrated. Well worth the read.
I now have read both of the Gerry Fagan books and enjoyed them both. The main characters were not nice people but Mr. Neville found a way to make the sympathetic. Of course I'm not including the so called love interest. These were different kind of books for me and enjoyed them thoroughly. And the narrator was also good. My first narrator that did it with the Irish accent
Addicted to books, both print and audio-.
I loved The Ghosts of Belfast so much that I pretty much had to get the sequel. It would be difficult to equal or better The Ghosts of Belfast; the somewhat-supernatural creep factor was so well done, and that paired with Gerard Doyle's narration made for a very intense and compelling listen. Collusion is more of a down-to-earth police procedural/thriller, with familiar plot twists. It felt formulaic. Gerry Fegan is a marvelous character, and it's good to know what happened to him after the first book. I'd say if you are compelled to know what happens next, listen to Collusion. But if you're looking for something close to as good as the first book and aren't really driven to follow this particular story, you could give this a pass.
My God, this book and terrific reader are a combination made in heaven. It's a terrible sad, violent but beautiful story. The sad case of Northern Ireland teamed with wonderful character development makes the book truely great. The performance is simply outstanding. I've never heard anything like it. Wonderful!
Great listen. Try to read in order author wrote. Character development is complex. Are there any truly good guys. Listen and determine for your self. B
I started the jack Lennon series from the fourth book accidentally. The narrator is really good! He can do all the different accents and dialects and it sounds so real! The story is exciting and you want to know more each time you listen!
