About the Author
Praise For Stolen Souls…
"Stolen Souls is a nightmare story in the most noir place on earth, told by an exceptional talent. Crime fiction doesn't get much better than that."
“Top-notch Irish crime fiction ... one senses a diamond-hard stillness at the heart of Neville's prose, despite the hurtling plot. This leaves us poised between savoring the beauty of his words and reading madly to get to the end.”
—Los Angeles Times
“Stolen Souls offers harrowing, uncompromising suspense.”
"Gripping, compassionate and packed with wonderfully realised characters, this is a book that will stay with you long after you finish it. Just three books in and Stuart Neville is already a crime-writing star."
—Mark Billingham, author of Lazybones
"Stolen Souls is another winner from a man who's rapidly establishing himself as a top-notch thriller writer. Great stuff."
“You read Stolen Souls wincing, in thrall to Neville's brilliance but wishing you weren't.” —Guardian
“A no-frills thriller that barrels along at a ferocious pace.... Belfast looms large as a character in itself, its warren of streets simultaneously offering threat and the hope of salvation in a novel that explores not only the dark heart of the Irish sex trade but also the twisted motivations of the men who so brutally exploit women.”
“If you by chance have never read Stuart Neville’s Belfast Trilogy, it’s time to redeem yourself.”
“Neville excels at conjuring up memorable details.... A gripping excursion into the nightside of humanity, but it is not without its richness and insights. It burrows into your brain like the best dark fairy tales.”
