Collusion, Stolen Souls, and The Final Silence, by Stuart Neville

Thank you, everyone for your understanding and encouragement regarding my lack of writing. I did mean what I said about not having "quit" - it's just on an indefinite hiatus. In the meantime, writing book reviews at least has me writing something, and I do enjoy those too. So I'll try to resume those.

Collusion Stolen Souls The Final Silence

Verdict: Stuart Neville's Belfast noir series is gritty and hardboiled, sour like whiskey, violent like Belfast, tough like the Irish. I enjoyed all four books, though the first was the best, and by the fourth it was starting to show some signs of wear common to most detective series. The writing is tight and the plots never went off the rails, so it is a good series for connoisseurs of crime thrillers.

Also by Stuart Neville: My review of The Ghosts of Belfast.
