Stuart Neville recommends
Wee Danny (2013)
(Wee Rockets)
Gerard Brennan
"A unique voice among contemporary Irish writers."
The Defence (2015)
(Eddie Flynn, book 1)
Steve Cavanagh
"A full-on thrill-ride that hits the gas on page one and doesn't let up until the end. Steve blends a taut legal thriller with a ticking-clock suspense plot and throws in a great protagonist in the form of Eddie Flynn that readers will want to see again and again. A terrific debut."
A Friend is a Gift You Give Yourself (2019)
William Boyle
"A thunderous locomotive of a novel, driven by remarkable characters and sparkling dialogue. A treat for fans of neo-noir, it’s brimming with dark wit and piercing insight. Highly recommended."
On My Life (2019)
Angela Clarke
"ON MY LIFE by Angela Clarke is a heart-rending mystery, and an unflinching study of life in the prison system."
Shutter (2022)
Ramona Emerson
"In her thrilling debut, Shutter, Ramona Emerson allows us a glance into not just one world, but many. Bridging the divide between a grounded procedural mystery and a paranormal thriller, this novel is a feast for fans of both genres and brings us a protagonist we'll want to visit again and again."
