Stuart Neville

Praise for THE HOUSE OF ASHES

"[A] gut-wrenching novel of psychological suspense with ghostly undertones... This unforgettable tale of servitude and subservience, domestic abuse, and toxic masculinity builds to a resolution offering redemptions and heartfelt solace. Neville has outdone himself." 
Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

“[THE HOUSE OF ASHES] will keep you turning the pages.” 
Kirkus

"A brilliant, atmospheric novel from Stuart Neville that plays with chronology and the idea that evil can linger in the dark places. Neville writes with care and empathy and his characters will stay with you for a long time. In a storied career, this may well be Stuart Neville's best book." 
—Adrian McKinty, best-sellinging author of THE COLD COLD GROUND

"Spellbinding . . . Neville hooks his reader with the opening sequences of his story, mystery, and horror emerging prominently. The multi-narrative structure that plays out is effective and gripping. Impressive just begins to describe Neville’s latest offering." 
Seattle Book Review

“Featuring supernatural and even gothic elements in a book fueled by female resilience, this is a huge departure for Neville, a risk that pays off quite handsomely . . . A story that is as moving and inspiring as it is terrifying.”

Praise for THE TRAVELLER AND OTHER STORIES

“Noir, noir, noir—everybody wants to write noir fiction. But most self-anointed 'noir' narratives just don’t hack it. They’re dark and dreary, to be sure; but a true noir mystery must also have a black heart. This kind of spiritual despair comes naturally to Stuart Neville, whose Belfast crime novels bleed.” 
The New York Times Book Review

“13 tales of horrific crimes and terrifying horrors in this splendid collection… This chilling assortment of Northern Irish noir is not to be missed.” 
Publishers Weekly, Starred and Boxed Review

“Irish noir done to a turn, with just enough tearful sentiment to turn the screws tighter.” 
Kirkus

Praise for SO SAY THE FALLEN

“Tightly wound, emotionally resonant . . . Displays an acute understanding of the true state of Northern Ireland, still under the thumb of decades of violence.” 
Los Angeles Times

“[A] universal tale in which unchecked evil flourishes… Flanagan…is a fallible protagonist whose appeal grows with each book; don’t miss her here.” 
Booklist, Starred Review

“[A] complex and compassionate study of the human condition.” 
Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

“In the world of modern crime fiction, Stuart Neville is a supernova.” 
—Dennis Lehane, best-selling author of SHUTTER ISLAND

Praise for THOSE WE LEFT BEHIND

“The dread in this novel is palpable from the first pages until the heartbreaking final ones. It's Neville's best yet.” 
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

“A great, brawling ache of a novel . . . filled with both prickling suspense and fiercely wrought emotion.” 
—Megan Abbott, Edgar Award-winning author

“Neville’s books are dark but elegantly written case studies of the roots of violence, and here he writes thoughtfully, even tenderly.”
New York Times Book Review

“Award-winning Northern Irish crime writer Neville has the gift of making us care about the fate of each of his creations… Another winner, this is fast-paced and intriguing to the very end.”
Library Journal, Starred Review
