The Ghosts of Belfast by Stuart Neville (The Belfast Novels Book 1)
This gripping Irish crime fiction novel has skyrocketed as one of my top 5 favorite books of all time. It’ll leave you shocked, speechless and wanting more. Years ago Gerry Fegan was the muscle for the IRA, but is now a delusional drunkard that lurks in local pubs. He’s been seen talking to himself and drinking until he blacks out. What people don’t know is that twelve ghosts haunt him from murders he took part in for the IRA. These spirits torment him into avenging their deaths. Gerry must also fight to protect a woman he befriends and her small daughter when the IRA targets them. Gerry Fegan turns into one of the best anti-heroes I’ve read about in years. At its core The Ghosts of Belfast is a raw crime fiction novel. Stuart Neville’s debut novel is extremely well crafted with an incredible weave of paranormal activity. Do these evil men deserve to be hunted and murdered for their transgression against innocents? You betcha. I would’ve given The Ghosts of Belfast ten stars, but five was the maximum.
