Praise for Blood Like Mine

"Stuart Neville at his very, very best--this book grabs your heart and doesn't let go."
--Ruth Ware, New York Times bestselling author of The Woman in Cabin 10

"An action-packed thriller, the mid-way twist in this book will leave you as breathless as several victims on the pages of this relentlessly-paced and unexpectedly moving story as the reader is propelled towards the truly shocking conclusion. Bravo Stuart Neville! Utterly brilliant."
--Liz Nugent, author of Strange Sally Diamond

"I absolutely loved Blood Like Mine . . . Thrilling, heartbreaking, and completely compelling. My heart was in my throat the whole time."
--Alex North, author of The Whisper Man

"Beautiful and dark as all hell. Poignant. Nightmarish . . . Original, terrifying and horrifically tense. This book is your next obsession (and Neville might well be Stephen King's rightful heir)."
--Will Dean, author of The Last Thing to Burn

"Wow, just WOW. I've waited a long time for a crime novel to do something different, to keep me guessing, to blow me away--this is that book . . . I lived and breathed every second and flew through the pages--desperate to keep reading but not wanting it to end. Wholly originally and utterly compelling, this is an incredibly tense book that is also full of regret, guilt, and love. Blood Like Mine will grip you from the first page and keep you prisoner until you turn the last page. I absolutely loved it."
--C. L. Taylor, author of The Guilty Couple

"This is quite simply the best crime novel I've read this year. A stunning work of fiction that seized me by the throat from the first page to the last. I won't stop thinking about this one for some time." --Cass Green, author of In a Cottage in a Wood

"Blood Like Mine is Stuart Neville at his considerable best. A shocking and powerful thriller that is as moving as it is gripping. This is a book you will not forget in a hurry and which will leave you hungry for the next installment."
--Mark Billingham, author of the Tom Thorne novels

"What a book! Exciting, propulsive, and vivid. A thriller with real bite."
--Mark Edwards, author of Keep Her Secret

"At its core, Blood Like Mine is the story of a mother's unconditional love for her daughter, and that gives everything that happens - the growing horror, the murders, the frantic desperation - an almost unbearable emotional punch. I've not read anything quite like this before, and once it sank its teeth in, I was utterly gripped . . . and I'm eager for more."
--Tim Lebbon, author of Eden

"A visceral, cinematic masterpiece. Silence of the Lambs filtered through the lens of prime Stephen King. You won't read a more gut-wrenching novel this year."
--Ed James, author of the DI Simon Fenchurch novels

"I haven't stopped thinking about this since I devoured it. A tense, dark thriller that combines jaw-dropping horror with gut-punching tenderness, this is a book that will get under your skin
and stay there forever."
--S. J. I. Holliday, author of Violet

"A masterclass in storytelling, Blood Like Mine is a dark, chilling tale that will grip you from the very first page. Steeped in the emotion of love and loss, Neville's characters are captivating and leap off the page to grab you by the throat--this is a story that you won't forget."
--Sam Blake, author of Little Bones

Praise for Stuart Neville

"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

"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

"The current master of neo-noir detective fiction."
--The Boston Globe

"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

"In the world of modern crime fiction, Stuart Neville is a supernova."
--Dennis Lehane

"Chilling, compassionate and compelling, Stuart Neville takes us straight to the dark heart of rural Ireland."
--Val McDermid

"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

"Superlative . . . A pulse-pounding crime novel from a master of the genre."
--Booklist, Starred Review

"[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 redemption and heartfelt solace. Neville has outdone himself."
--Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
