Stuart Neville

Some secrets are more dangerous than others, as seen in Stuart Neville’s latest crime thriller, The Final Silence. The story centers on Rea Carlisle, who has just inherited a house in Belfast from a long-lost uncle. Among the things she finds in the house is a catalog of victims, a leather-bound book filled with the mementos of a murderer. It’s a chilling discovery. Unable to take the evidence to the police (the scandal would ruin her father’s political career), she reaches out to an ex-lover and former police inspector, Jack Lennon. Just as he starts to investigate, Lennon suddenly becomes the lead suspect in a murder case. Someone doesn’t want him looking into the book, doesn’t want him to uncover the murderer, that’s clear. But is it someone from his own past or someone connected to the Carlisle house book?
