Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A 2009 Los Angeles Times Book Prize Finalist.

"The best first novel I've read in years. . . . It's a flat out terror trip."—James Ellroy

"Stunning. . . . The Ghosts of Belfast is a haunting debut."—South Florida Sun Sentinel

"Sharp prose places readers in this pitiless place and holds them there. Harsh and unrelenting crime fiction, masterfully done."—Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"[A] stunning debut. . . . This is not only an action-packed, visceral thriller but also an insightful insider's glimpse into the complex political machinations and networks that maintain the uneasy truce in Northern Ireland."—Publishers Weekly, starred review

"In this well-crafted and intriguing series debut, Neville evokes the terrors of living in Belfast during 'the Troubles' and manages to make Fegan, a murderer many times over, a sympathetic character. . . . The buzz around this novel is well deserved and readers will be anticipating the next book in the series."—Library Journal, starred review

Peace has come to Northern Ireland, but IRA hit man Gerry Fegan is haunted day and night by twelve ghosts: a mother and infant, a schoolboy, a butcher, and eight more of his victims. To appease them, he'll have to kill his former bosses.

Stuart Neville is a partner in a multimedia design business based in Armagh, Northern Ireland. This novel, the first in a series, was published in England by Secker Harvill as The Twelve, as well as in France, Spain, and Japan.

Synopsis:

A onetime IRA hit man, haunted by ghosts, stalks his former bosses.

Synopsis:

Fegan has been a “hard man,” an IRA killer in northern Ireland. Now that peace has come, he is being haunted day and night by twelve ghosts: a mother and infant, a schoolboy, a butcher, an RUC constable, and seven other of his innocent victims. In order to appease them, he’s going to have to kill the men who gave him orders.

As he’s working his way down the list he encounters a woman who may offer him redemption; she has borne a child to an RUC officer and is an outsider too. Now he has given Fate—and his quarry—a hostage. Is this Fegan’s ultimate mistake?
