A beautifully written thriller with a dark twist. Davy's life has become complicated when he confides in his older brother and calls on him for help. Is he taking things too far though? Compelling reading.

Synopsis

Blackwater by Conn Iggulden

How do you know when you're in too deep?

Davey has always lived in the shadow of his older brother, a smiling sociopath who will stop at nothing to protect himself and his family. But when the shadowy figure of Denis Tanter comes into Davey's life, how far will the bond of brotherhood reach?

Reviews

Praise for Conn Iggulden and his books:

'Great fun … the great events and breathtaking brutality of the times are brought lavishly to life.' GUARDIAN

'A brilliant story - I wish I'd written it. A novel of vivid characters, stunning action and unrelenting pace. It really is a terrific read.' BERNARD CORNWELL

'Stunning. Words like "brilliant", "sumptuous" and "enchanting" jostle to be used but scarcely convey the way Iggulden brings the tale to life … exhilarating.' Los Angeles Times
