Publisher's Summary

From the LA Times Book Award-winning author of The Ghosts of Belfast, Stuart Neville, comes the exciting sequel: Collusion

Collusion returns listeners to Belfast, where a new mystery haunts its underbelly. Jack Lennon is a Detective Inspector trying to track down his former lover, Marie McKenna, and their daughter, but his superiors tell him to back off. Bull O'Kane is a bitter old man who will stop at nothing for vengeance. The Traveller is an assassin without pity or remorse, who stalks Belfast, tying up loose ends. Forced into the center of it all is former IRA paramilitary Gerry Fegan, who must confront his past - and The Traveller - for the fight of his life.

The early reviews for Collusion are just as strong as those for The Ghosts of Belfast. And Gerard Doyle's narration complements Neville's taut, sinister, smart, and suspenseful story perfectly. Collusion is a feast for thriller fans.

What the Critics Say

"Irish author Neville follows his stunning debut with an even more powerful tale of revenge, violence, and redemption. Neville rides the perfect Celtic storm in an action-packed, cerebral thriller." (Publishers Weekly)
"James Ellroy and Val McDermid were among admirers of Stuart Neville's corpse-filled debut [The Ghosts of Belfast], and his follow-up Collusion is another mesmerising Belfast blood bath. The Traveller and O'Kane are memorably grotesque creations, and Neville's violent showdowns rival those in Jacobean revenge plays." (Sunday Times)
"Collusion is a gripping thriller that transcends its genre through an unflinching examination of how 40 years of internecine strife has left unhealed scars that resonate in all levels of life in the North today." (Irish Independent)

"As it lurches toward its bloody conclusion, the chapters of Collusion shrink, the world contracts, and, ultimately, all that remains is survival. The question Mr. Neville raises with singularly artful drama is whether survival is enough to keep one going." (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette)

"Doyle’s performance of Lennon’s grit and vulnerabilities gives credibility to both, and his portrayals of the brutal villains are downright terrifying." (AudioFile)

    "The best narrator for any book set in Ireland"

    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.

    "A different kind of book"

    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

    "Reasonable sequel"

    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.

    "A Truely Great Book and The Best Reader Ever!"

    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!

    I was really hoping for better after Ghosts of Belfast. But Gerard Doyle never disappoints. Great performance as is usual.

    "Great start to the series!"

    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!
