Collusion returns listeners to Belfast, where a new mystery haunts its underbelly. Jack Lennon is a Detective Inspector trying to track down his former lover, Marie McKenna, and their daughter, but his superiors tell him to back off. Bull O'Kane is a bitter old man who will stop at nothing for vengeance. The Traveller is an assassin without pity or remorse, who stalks Belfast, tying up loose ends. Forced into the center of it all is former IRA paramilitary Gerry Fegan, who must confront his past - and The Traveller - for the fight of his life.
The early reviews for Collusion are just as strong as those for The Ghosts of Belfast. And Gerard Doyle's narration complements Neville's taut, sinister, smart, and suspenseful story perfectly. Collusion is a feast for thriller fans.
"Utterly authentic and with a bone-crunching punch, Collusion suggests Neville may just have the talent to rival his hero James Ellroy when it comes to harsh, black thrillers." ( Daily Mail)
"James Ellroy and Val McDermid were among admirers of Stuart Neville's corpse-filled debut [ The Ghosts of Belfast], and his follow-up Collusion is another mesmerising Belfast blood bath. The Traveller and O'Kane are memorably grotesque creations, and Neville's violent showdowns rival those in Jacobean revenge plays." ( Sunday Times)
"Brisk, addictive and possessing an expert sense of when to play the 'supernatural' card, Collusion is a worthy successor to one of last year's best thrillers." ( The Guardian)
" Collusion is a gripping thriller that transcends its genre through an unflinching examination of how 40 years of internecine strife has left unhealed scars that resonate in all levels of life in the North today." ( Irish Independent)

Would you consider the audio edition of Collusion to be better than the print version?
never read the print version but loved this book
What was one of the most memorable moments of Collusion?
all of it
What about Gerard Doyle’s performance did you like?
Gerard Doyle was the perfect narrator i suppose that's why the chose him. the story was very good but as with any audiobook, the narrator can make or break the story. i have downloaded all Aidrian Mac Kintys books and enjoyed every one of them.
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Any additional comments?
Mac Kinty and Doyle, great combination.

Gripping Irish noir
In his second outing, Neville proves that his terrific debut novel, The Ghosts of Belfast, was no fluke. This is a well written, carefully constructed thriller full of dark and dangerous characters. The storytelling and pacing are near perfect. This is a book that stays with you after you've finished listening to it.
Gerard Doyle's brilliant narration adds immeasurable texture and richness to the reading experience. With his work on the two Neville books, together with his equally outstanding narration of Adrian McKinty's Michael Forsythe trilogy, Doyle has firmly established himself as the narrator of choice for Irish noir.

Tough Conclusion to Ghosts of Belfast
Hard but not as brutal as the first part of this epic Irish crime adventure. Read Ghosts of Belfast first. Wait a bit, then finish the story with "Collusion". Again Gerard Doyle makes this experience greater than reading the novel. You will have flashbacks… They're worth it. This story is gripping.Enjoy…
Now… Spoiler Alert… Don't read any farther if you've not read this novel.
How the hell did the hero detective get outta that basement? Was their a chapter missing in my download? Somebody help!
