Fantastic first novel by Neville

nevThe ghosts of Belfast went by too fast.

I enjoyed every chapter of Stuart Neville’s first novel ‘The Ghosts of Belfast‘. I felt as though I was getting to know a writer with great style while also meeting Belfast for the first time. The premise of a thug haunted by the ghosts of innocent people, dead by his misdeeds easily carries the novel to its unpredictable conclusion.

Through the haunted killer Gerry Fegan we get some insight into the politics behind the historical violence in Ireland and the motivations of its bad guys.

The Wheatsheaf Literary Society gave “The Ghosts of Belfast” a good review – an average of 3.5 pints (out of a possible 4). I give it a 4 and will definitely make time for the Neville’s subsequent novels.
