Product Description


Praise for Fallen Idols:

‘Fallen Idols has been hailed as a stunning debut’.
The Blackpool Gazette

‘Fallen Idols…has all the hallmarks of a great read for crime-thriller fans with celebrity killings, conspiracies, revenge and even a hint of romance’.
The Weekly News

’… a whirlwind of a novel…a serious contender to match the giants of the crime fiction world’

Product Description

Sometimes the worst nightmares happen in broad daylight…

An utterly gripping novel for fans of Peter James and Mark Billingham, from a rising star in the crime genre.

A woman is found brutally murdered on a quiet housing estate, her tongue and eyes ritualistically gouged out.

Children are being abducted and then returned to their families days later without a scratch and with no knowledge or where they have been - or with whom.

If DC Laura McGanity thought moving from London to sleepy Lancashire was taking the easy option then she can think again. Already worried about uprooting young son Bobby to follow her reporter boyfriend Jack Garrett back to his hometown, she must quickly get a handle on these mystifying cases terrifying the people of Blackley - without putting the local officers' noses out of joint.

Meanwhile, restless Jack is itching to get back to his writing and the cases provide the perfect opportunity to do so. But as he delves deeper into them, he finds murky connections between the two crimes and skeletons buried in the most unlikely of closets.

Most astonishing of all, he meets a man who 'paints' the future - terrible events come to him in vivid dreams which he then puts onto canvas. This 'precognition' is not so much a gift as a curse and to Jack it becomes terrifyingly that many people, including his own family, are in danger…

This is the first Novel of Neil White's I have read and it most certainly will not be the last.
The book gives a thoroughly gripping read.
The characters jump to life.
It is based around 3 main characters.
Jack - (a Reporter)
Laura (Jacks girlfriend who just so happens to be cop who is also a mother)
Sam (a Lawyer)
A Spate of Gruesome murders take place.
Meanwhile there are Children going missing who are snatched in the street and then reappear unharmed and having no memory of where they have been.
An Old Man has dreams of the Murders - Is he the murderer?
You'll have to get the book to find out!!!

I have now started to read his first book Fallen Idols of how Jack and Laura Met and I can not wait for his third book to come out - you get a bit of a taster at the end of Lost Souls!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful...not to be missed 10 Aug 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The only problem I'm finding with Neil White's superb Garrity/McGanity series is that once you've started, you can't put the books down. And I'm going through them at a helluva pace!
This is the second one and is even better than the first. The plot is imaginative and intriguing, and unwinds with all the usual twists and turns to keep the reader guessing.
The writing is superb and the descriptions sometimes graphic. In fact, the whole structure of this book, even down to the completely error-free editing..unusual for a Kindle quite incredible for a little known author.
But Neil White will not be 'little known' for long I suspect. His leading characters, so sensitively drawn, are good for a very long series indeed and the limit will only be the author's ability to come up with unique and fascinating story lines.
As I write this, I am already 50% into the next one..Last Rites..and I can tell you that things just get better and better.
Believe me, this is a series that you simply must not miss.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent British crime read! 2 Aug 2008
This is the first book I have read by Neil White and it will not be the last. I love books by Mark Billingham, Karin Slaughter, Tess Gerritsen etc and now I have another author to add to my most wanted list. This book sails along at a great pace. It isn't cheesy or predictable at all and kept me totally gripped. I think Jack and Laura and Sam are great characters and hope we see more of them!

4.0 out of 5 stars I like it when pot luck delivers! 11 April 2012
By rick
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm a big fan of crime fiction, particularly when there is a main character or characters who are defined well enough that you quickly grow to not only like them but are keen to join their journey. I picked this from a random "recommendation" here on amazon and was very pleasantly surprised!

the combination of detective and journalist is a good balance, and their distinctive characterisations completely believable, not only in how they chase the "bad guy" but how they interract with each other.

I think many have said already if you enjoy Mark Billingham; Kerry Wilkinson or Jo Nesbo's novels, you'll enjoy this too (and others by Neil White, I've now read a few!)

highly recommended by this happy reader!

5.0 out of 5 stars Read in bed 17 Aug 2010
This is the first of Neil white's books that I've read and I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed it. The interaction of characters took the story forward. I've got another title waiting on my bedside table. Should get round to starting that one sometime next week.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nearly gave up on this one. 12 Oct 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've read & enjoyed all of the Garret/McGanity series of books by Neil White, albeit not in the order they were written. I would recommend any of this series to anyone interested in a good, tightly plotted detective yarn. If you're a fan of Mark Billingham's excellent "Thorne" books, chances are you'll enjoy these too. However "Lost Souls" differs from the rest of the series by using a supernatural phenomenon as a plot device - there are characters in this book who seem to be able to predict the future, and the plot turns on this to some extent. I was waiting for it all to be exposed as an elaborate hoax, but it never is. It seems that we are asked to believe in "precognition" (as it is referred to in the book) as a viable scientific theory (it isn't). Now, if you are the type of person who believes in the supernatural you won't have a problem with this... but if, like me, you like your crime fiction to be based in REALITY and don't believe in mediums, psychics or fortune telling, because science has shown that no-one can actually do it under circumstances which preclude cheating, then you may feel this book is not up to the same standard as the rest in the series, by quite some margin.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic book!! 13 Mar 2009
This is my first review so bare with me.

This is the 2nd in the Jack Garrett series. A Lancashire based crime reporter who fights crime with a little help from his friends. I really enjoyed this, it was a fast paced and thrilling novel...had me sitting of the edge of my seat at times...and jumpy when I was home alone reading it. You can pick this up and read from this book but I'd recommend starting with Fallen Idols which is just as good.
