Publisher's Summary

As a member of the Counter Terrorist Unit, Sean Doyle thought he'd seen it all. Every violent act, every depraved action man could perpetrate against man but he is to discover that there are much worse things in this world than even he has encountered.
Tracking a group of renegade terrorists from London to the Republic of Ireland, Doyle and his partner must discover who is funding these men and why. What he discovers is beyond even his experience and threatens not just his life but his sanity too.
The trail of terror leads not just across Britain but to France as well where the monstrous deeds of a murderer who died four hundred years earlier still cast a dark and horrific shadow. In the grisly frames of a stained glass window taken from the home of this vile killer lay the secret sought by so many for so long. The secret of immortality. And one man will stop at nothing to get it.
Sean Doyle is about to meet that man. Modern terrorism meets Medieval madness in a jaw-dropping climax that will make the living envy the dead...
Shaun Hutson is one of the UK's best known horror writers and author of over 50 books. He made his name with best-sellers such as Spawn and Relics - acquiring the nicknames 'The Godfather of Gore' and 'The Shakespeare of Gore' in the process - and has since written a number of dark urban thrillers as well. He has also written for radio, magazines, television and novelized a couple of Hammer Horror films.

Critic Reviews

"Britain's greatest living horror author." (Dark Side)
"An expert in the art of keeping the reader turning the pages." (Time Out)
"Hutson writes grippingly." (SFX Magazine)
"Hutson’s writing is scintillating. His intense descriptions of realistic violence and characters take you to the very heart of the action in Dublin and France… Renegades is a novel so gritty, it’ll make your gums bleed." (This is Horror)

If Michael Bay wrote X rated novels...

This was one of the few books that I have just given up on. The action is so over the top and exaggerated as to be comedic, yet the descriptions of the sex and violence are so disturbingly graphic as to ruin any mote of comedy. The charterers are deplorable and, at least over the first hour or two, feel very two dimensional and predictable. The book feels like it was assembled from a grab bag of tropes. The reader was fine, but I wouldn't recommend this book based solely on his performance.

Almost like stepping back in time

Shaun Hutson's 1993 political thriller is finally given the audiobook treatment and listening to this is akin to going back twenty years to a dark time in Ireland's history.

Counter terrorist officer Sean Doyle is on the tale of IRA members following the massacre's at Stormont & Windsor Park with the help of fellow officer Georgie Willis. The story is typical Hutson (plenty of violence, high body count & a couple of sex scenes) and flows nicely, Kobna Holdbrook-Smith is excellent accent wise and does a good job with the characters (especially Doyle).

All in all a very good political thriller from an author more well known for his horror stories...

I read this book when it first came out and loved it. As I did a lot of Shaun Hutson books. So thought I’d give it a go on here.
I’m sorry to say this but the narrator absolutely kills this book ! Makes the hole story flat. I wouldn’t be able to listen to another book with this guy reading it.
