The Last Crossing is a brilliant excavation of the recent past. McGilloway's book begins with as frightening and visceral a scene as in any Scorsese movie and explores the aftermath in only the way a great author can. It's just a two-hour car ride on the ferry from Scotland to Ireland, but during the Troubles it was a journey from 20th-century civilisation into the heart of darkness.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Moving and powerful, this is an important book, which everyone should read." Ann Cleeves; "A gentle, reflective book about a violent situation seems like an oxymoron but that's what Brian McGilloway has achieved with The Last Crossing. An eye-opening read." Sinead Crowley; "This book is the peak of what crime fiction can do. Brian McGilloway writes like an angel." Steve Cavanagh; "An extraordinary novel from one of Ireland's crime fiction masters." Adrian McKinty; "As heart-stopping and thrilling as it is exquisitely written and prescient. A work of fiction which looks unapologetically at the legacy of our troubled past." Claire Allan; |The Last Crossing unearths individual truths, unreliable memories and personal mythologies with a complex character-driven story that will leave you breathless until the final page." Gerard Brennan

“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.
