About Ratlines:
 
Ireland, 1963. As the Irish people prepare to welcome President John F. Kennedy to the land of his ancestors, a German businessman is murdered in a seaside guesthouse. He is the third foreign national to die within a few days, and Minister for Justice Charles Haughey is desperate to protect a shameful secret: the dead men were all former Nazis granted asylum by the Irish government. A note from the killers is found on the corpse, addressed to Colonel Otto Skorzeny, Hitler’s favourite commando. It says simply: “We are coming for you. Await our call.” Lieutenant Albert Ryan, Directorate of Intelligence, is ordered to investigate the murders and protect Skorzeny. But as he infiltrates Ireland’s secret network of former Nazis and collaborators, Ryan must make a terrible choice: his country or his conscience?
 
"Ratlines is a belter: fast, furious, bloody and good."
--Ian Rankin, New York Times bestselling author of Exit Music
 
"Stuart Neville’s books just get better and better and Ratlines is simply superb."
--Mark Billingham, bestselling author of Rush of Blood
 
"Wildly entertaining, Ratlines is a superb mystery but in addition, a spotlight on a slice of Irish history largely ignored. This is a complex mystery told in the exceptional style that Stuart Neville has made his own. Jameson and Nazis, Irish rebel songs and Charles Haughey, it’s a bold and brilliant blend."
--Ken Bruen, Shamus Award-winning author of The Guard
