my review of Stuart Neville’s RATLINES in The Independent on Sunday

Ratlines, Stuart Neville

My review of Stuart Neville’s excellent RATLINES ran in yesterday’s Independent on Sunday. Click on through for the details. The thing that struck me most about it, is that I never really appreciated Ireland’s thorny relationship with the Second World War. Neville uses that as a brilliant backdrop for a cracking thriller. I don’t always find historical fiction engaging or credible, but RATLINES was definitely both those things and more.
