9780099535348: The Twelve

Sooner or later, everybody pays.

Gerry Fegan, a former paramilitary contract killer, is haunted by the ghosts of the 12 people he has slaughtered. Every night, on the point of losing his mind, he drowns their screams in drink. His solution is to kill those who engineered their deaths.

From the greedy politicians to the corrupt security forces, the street thugs to the complacent bystanders who let it happen, all are called to account. But when Fegan's vendetta threatens to derail a hard-won truce and destabilise the government, old comrades and enemies alike want him dead.

Winner of the Los Angeles Times Book Prize for Best Thriller.

Review:

‘[Neville] is …uniquely, tragically equipped to be able to think through complex issues of justice and mercy.’ Ian Sansom, Irish Times

‘A blistering debut…a superbly paced thriller thick with tension and violence.’ Metro London

‘… [an] impressive debut…’ Chris Petit, The Guardian

‘…an accomplished, tightly plotted and compassionate work… This is an unqualified triumph.’ Paul Connolly, London Lite

‘…astonishingly good…’ Matt Coward, Morning Star

‘…a brilliant thriller: unbearably tense, stomach churningly frightening… a future classic of its time.’ Nicola Barr, The Observer

‘Neville ceaselessly cranks up the tension and revels in the kind of violence that makes your stomach lurch.’ Siobhan Murphy, Metro London

‘Although a fictional novel, The Twelve… embraces its history. And …its fiction is only a hair’s breath away from reality.’ AP Maginness, Irish News

Review:

" The Twelve is the best first novel I've read in years. It crackles. It grabs you by the throat. This is some guy to watch out for in a dark alley" (James Ellroy)

"Stunning... Awesomely powerful, fabulously written and with a hero who is also a villain that you cannot help sympathising with, this novel is simply unmissable" ( Daily Mail)

"A brilliant thriller: unbearably tense, stomach-churningly frightening" ( Observer)

"As astonishing debut. Brilliantly conceived, masterfully written; both a heart-pounding thriller and a stunning examination of responsibility and revenge" (Jeff Abbott)

"A blistering debut" ( Metro)
