Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I first came across Stuart Neville with his novel 'The Twelve' and that excellent book put him straight onto my automatic purchase list. His subsequent novels have all justified my confidence in his ability to entertain me. Now we have The Final Silence and it is is a fast paced cracking read from cover to cover.
It is by no means necessary to read the previous Jack Lennon novels in order to enjoy this one but it would go some way to helping the reader understand the train wreck that is his life. Through spare excellent writing Stuart Neville holds your attention as he brings his very believable characters to life so that you empathise/sympathise with their various predicaments and emotions as the story unfolds...highly recommended.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
34-year-old Rea Carlisle visits the Belfast house of Raymond Drew, the uncle she barely knew, shortly after his death. In it she discovers a kind of diary containing accounts of murderous events dating back decades. Rea's father, an ambitious politician and Raymond Drew's brother-in-law, refuses to let her take the book to the police for fear of what the revelations could mean for his career. So she turns to suspended cop Jack Lennon, who's still recovering from various physical and emotional injuries suffered in previous escapades in this crime fiction series. Some of these past incidents are referred to frequently but anyone new to this author can read this novel as a stand-alone.

I found THE FINAL SILENCE to be a decent novel, I quite liked it, but it still lacks that special edge of Neville's debut novel The Twelve which I would recommend above this. It's better than just par-for-the-course, but without the supernatural elements drawn so well in the first Neville tale this has to go down as slightly disappointing.

It's one of the few crime fiction novels I have read that I always felt should be longer than it actually is. Almost every chapter is short and snappy, and just as it starts to delve into an interesting element of the story, it ends. There are several well-drawn characters whose backgrounds or situations could have been stretched out for the betterment of the tale, and one of the key relationships - between Lennon and DCI Hewitt - is barely touched upon and the absence of any confrontation or showdown is a little frustrating.

I'm never sure about books that start with someone discovering an old journal, it can smack of being amateurish, but when it transpired the journal was a leather bound book containing fingernails, locks of hair and a list of victims . . . well, I sat up and took notice. A grisly family secret is exposed, and our protagonist, gutsy Rea Carlisle, teams up with a troubled DI. A gripping read, full of atmosphere and believable characters.

I received my copy from the publisher through Nudge

I fell in love with Stuart Neville’s writing when I read ‘The Twelve’, early in 2011 and he’s impressed me more with each subsequent book.

‘The Final Silence’ is a return to the Jack Lennon mysteries after ‘Ratlines’; last year’s wonderful, stand-alone, historical thriller. And it is a welcome return. The books in this series are exquisitely written. Neville pulls the reader into his story on the very first page and hooks them further with each subsequent chapter. His mysteries are not for the faint of heart. He’s not afraid of violence, less than perfect characters or controversial plot developments; all of which make his stories more realistic and thrilling.

Jack Lennon is such a compromised hero. The way he is described, the actions he takes and the decisions he makes are so flawed and yet so very human that it is impossible not to root for him even if while you wish he’d make life easier for himself. His relationship and obvious love for his daughter Ellen may be the only thing that is pure and without a darker side, but it shows his character better than any of his less than ideal decisions do.

The same can be said for most characters in this series. With one or two exceptions they are all human and recognisable because of their flaws, prejudices and mistakes as much as their more admirable traits.

Stuart Neville’s books are about more than ‘just’ the mystery, fascinating as it may be. His characters all have lives that come into play. Their health, background, status influence the way they operate. Every issue is handled with care and sympathy without interrupting the flow of the story or distracting from the mystery; a remarkable achievement to say the least.

I have now read all of Stuart Neville's "Belfast Stories" - The Twelve: Collusion: Lost Souls: and now The Final Silence. All have the anti hero Jack Lennon a "renegade" Detective Inspector with the PSNI. All four of the books are extremely well written and although several of the characters are recurring throughout the four books each of them are stand alone novels. I would suggest to anyone intending to read these books that even though they can be read alone, for your own satisfaction start with The Twelve and progress through the other three as the very first book sets the scene and period for the remaining three. Knowing Belfast as I do the books for me are familiar ground, and I loved each of them. The strange thing is before I picked up a copy of the Twelve I had not actually heard of Stuart Neville before, though I understand he is a well known writer. His style of writing makes you reluctant to put the books down until you reach the last line on the last page. In The Final Silence Lennon is and has been "on leave" as a result of injuries sustained in an earlier confrontation during which he shoots dead a fellow officer but also receives severe injuries himself. His estranged "in laws" take his incapacity as an excuse and opportunity to grab his young daughter and refuse to return her to him. This story deals with Lennon's difficulties in attempting to solve a murder in which he is the prime suspect, while trying to retrieve his daughter. Add to this a Senior Officer who intends to rid the police service of Lennon once and for all, by any means and you will begin to understand the pressures with which Lennon is attempting to deal.Read more ›
