Gerard Doyle makes this book just as he did the first novel in this series, The Ghosts of Belfast. He is simply superb. He manages Irish accents, differentiates characters and keeps the story moving brilliantly. Thirteen was an incredible book. It would be hard for Neville to match it. This is a good book but not quite as good as the first one. And for readers who are unfamiliar with the intricacies of the plot of The Ghosts of Belfast this novel will be uninterpretable. Almost all of the action in Collusion stems from incidents and characters in the first book, and not a lot of explanation is provided for the novice reader. Neville is the best at writing short, action packed chapters that switch points of view among characters. He is a pleasure to listen to. If Doyle reads his next one, I will for sure be a listener.
