Waterstones Says

The long shadow of the Northern Irish Troubles descends on a group of former friends forced to reunite one last time in McGilloway’s urgent, intelligent thriller.  

Shortlisted for the Theakston's Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year 2021

Tony, Hugh and Karen thought they'd seen the last of each other thirty years ago. Half a lifetime has passed and memories have been buried. But when they are asked to reunite - to lay ghosts to rest for the good of the future - they all have their own reasons to agree. As they take the ferry from Northern Ireland to Scotland the past is brought into terrible focus - some things are impossible to leave behind.

In The Last Crossing memory is unreliable, truth shifts and slips and the lingering legacy of the Troubles threatens the present once again.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'[A] superb book... thoughtful and insightful, wrenching and utterly compelling. It says something truly profound and universal about love, loyalty and revenge... If you want to understand Northern Ireland, or any society that has experienced conflict, put it on your list. And the writing is exquisite.' - Jane Casey 

'A brilliant excavation of the recent past... Another extraordinary novel from one of Ireland's crime fiction masters.' - Adrian McKinty

“Devastatingly good book; McGilloway raises the bar.”

Devastatingly good book; McGilloway raises the bar.

I was completely absorbed by this story which clearly proves the futility of some of the events that most certainly happened in the North.

Masterful storytelling.
