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.

Critic Reviews

"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)

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!

Love Gerard Doyle Reading

Great follow up to The Ghosts of Belfast which was fantastic. I love the way the little girl Ellen has 'the gift' but in a different context than Fegan. Sorry it had to end. Definitely these 2 books are worth a 2nd and 3rd read

Smart Cop Doing Stupid Things

What made the experience of listening to Collusion the most enjoyable?

The previous book in the series barely mentions Jack, but he needs information from that book to help him out. It was a great way to make this book not over dependent on knowing the past story but does not completely give away the first book.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The main Pimp's driver

Have you listened to any of Gerard Doyle’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Gerard Doyle is AWESOME, AGAIN!

Any additional comments?

I predict a third novel...

Not an American Ending...but close

What did you love best about Collusion?

It took me a little while to adjust to the reader and his accent. It's an Irish story after all. For readers/listeners who likes happy endings, be prepared. It's not an awfully sad ending but it is bittersweet.

WHERE'S THE STORY?

I did not find a compelling story line. There was no character development and I was lost. Not my type of story.

Relentless violence

A bleak story about post IRA violence in Belfast. Interesting beginning, with a promising theme: during the "troubles" ideological lines were blurred by collusion and corruption. But the characters live in, through and by violence and suffering. Onle Doyle's narration kept it going
