Tucked in its pages are fingernails and locks of hair: a catalog of victims. Thwarted by her father, Rea turns to the only person she can think of: disgraced police inspector Jack Lennon. His implication in the murder, coupled with the story Rea has brought to him, leaves Lennon more than slightly suspicious that the two are part of a grisly conspiracy.

This is the fourth book in Stuart Neville's excellent series which is set in Belfast in the long and complicated shadows of "The Troubles. Raymond knew he was dying and indeed was anxious to go, but he did not have either the strength or the will to first clean out the secrets that are hiding behind a locked door in the house he left behind. The house is inherited by his sister, Ida Carlisle, the wife of an ambitiou This is the fourth book in Stuart Neville's excellent series which is set in Belfast in the long and complicated shadows of "The Troubles.
The house is inherited by his sister, Ida Carlisle, the wife of an ambitious Northern Irish politician named Graham Carlisle. Graham has been clawing his way toward the top of the political ladder for a good number of years, sacrificing anything that stood in his way, including his wife and their only child, Rea, who is now in her early thirties.
Rea never really knew her Uncle Raymond and only has very dim memories of him from a funeral that took place when she was little more than a child. She helps her mother pack up and dispose of the meager belongings that Raymond left behind and is thrilled when her mother tells her that her mother and father are giving the house to her. It needs a lot of work, but for a young woman who never dreamed of owning her own home, it's a tremendous gift. There remains the problem of getting through the locked door upstairs leading to the only room that Rea and her mother were unable to get into.
Ida assumes that the room is empty and that her brother closed it off because he wasn't using it. But after her mother leaves, Rea forces the door open and stumbles onto a secret that will seriously disrupt her life and the lives of many others as well. In the meantime, the life of former police inspector Jack Lennon is falling to pieces. He has left the police force in disgrace; he has alienated the one woman who believed in and loved him in spite of his faults and, worst of all, he is in danger of losing his daughter who is the only person he truly loves.
Years ago, Lennon and Rea Carlisle had a brief relationship and now circumstances conspire to bring them together again. It's going to be a fateful ride for everyone involved. It wouldn't be fair to say more, but be advised: once you pick up this book, it's virtually impossible to put it down.
The characters are well-drawn and engaging; the story is gripping, and Neville demonstrates here once again the truth of the old axiom that the past is never dead; it isn't even past. The Final Silence is a terrific read. I gave this one three stars. I have a feeling that there were too many spoilers contained in this book for earlier novels for me to go back and really enjoy them. This is kind of a shame. I should have done more research instead of just taking this book from a stack of free books in my apartment and deciding to re I gave this one three stars.

I should have done more research instead of just taking this book from a stack of free books in my apartment and deciding to read it. I thought that I just glanced at the synopsis serial killer? The book takes place in Belfast. She gets freaked out, understandably, and contacts her parents.
So easy. So fast. So Target.
Her father is a rising politician who is eyeing a seat in Parliament in an upcoming election, he fears that any taint of scandal having to do with his family will kill his political career so he tells his daughter to do nothing about the book. It also has nothing to do with Land Reform, which was really the reason most people would want to read an almost page novel, The Second Land Reform! Excitement at the highest level! The writing is crisp and good in the book. For real though, the writing is good.
My major problems with the book, which give it three stars, but a strong three. The book felt a little uneven to me. The first part of the book was weighty in comparison to the rest of the book. There was quite a bit of setup going on, and it was great, but when when the actual meat of the novel comes it takes a slightly different turn than I was expecting and quite a bit of the set up felt like it was for nothing.
How will the innocent man prove his innocence? When will the investigator see who the real criminal is? In some ways it reminded me of the one Jo Nesbo book I read, but a quicker version of Nesbo for someone who wants to get through a book quickly and not get totally engrossed in the world of murder and mayhem.

The Final Silence (Jack Lennon #4) by Stuart Neville
This is a solid thriller although I didn't feel it was quite as strong as some of the previous books featuring D I Jack Lennon. In this story Jack Lennon continues to fight his inner demons all the while attempting to solve the murder of a past girlfriend Rea Carlisle.
It's been a while since I read the previous Jack Lennon story but there was enough backstory relating to the previous book to jog my memory. This author is one of my favourites, and I aways enjoy his Irish thrillers There is a stro This is a solid thriller although I didn't feel it was quite as strong as some of the previous books featuring D I Jack Lennon. This author is one of my favourites, and I aways enjoy his Irish thrillers There is a strong sense of time and place and the characters are always well drawn.
I hope in future that Jack Lennon's fortune starts to look a bit brighter. View 2 comments. Oct 30, Bob rated it it was amazing. I think my Goodreads friend Robert said it perfectly in just three words, compassionate and dark. For me, this is Neville's best book since his brilliant "Ghosts of Belfast.
The secondary characters are beautifully drawn, whether good or bad After a series of good reads, this was the one I think my Goodreads friend Robert said it perfectly in just three words, compassionate and dark.
After a series of good reads, this was the one I couldn't put down. I really loved this book. View all 3 comments.

While this series overall is great, this was not quite up to par. The plot had a couple of my least favorite elements and the main character was even harder to like than usual. However, in the end, everything seemed to come together and the audio narration by Gerard Doyle was excellent as usual. Oct 17, Susan Johnson rated it really liked it.
Rea inherits a house from an uncle she barely knew. There she makes a discovery so explosive it would have a horrible impact on her father's political career. She calls her former lover, Jack Lennon, for help. Lennon is dealing with problems of his own. He is off the force, disgraced, and living with a girlfriend and his daughter. That relationship is quite rocky so he doesn't really have the patience to listen to Rea's fears.
