The Kingdom

by Jo Nesbo

Thriller and Suspense Crime and Mystery Family Drama

The Kingdom Synopsis

TWO BROTHERS. BOUND BY BLOOD...AND A LIFETIME OF SECRETS.

When Roy and Carl's parents die suddenly, sixteen-year-old Roy is left as protector to his impulsive younger brother. But when Carl decides to travel the world in search of his fortune, Roy stays behind in their sleepy village, satisfied with his peaceful life as a mechanic.

Some years later, Carl returns with his charismatic new wife, Shannon - an architect. They are full of exciting plans to build a spa hotel on their family land. Carl wants not only to make the brothers rich but the rest of the village, too.

It's only a matter of time before what begins as a jubilant homecoming sparks off a series of events that threaten to derail everything Roy holds dear, as long-buried family secrets begin to rise to the surface...

Jo Nesbo Press Reviews

I read THE KINGDOM and couldn't put it down...suspenseful...original...this one is special in every way. - Stephen King

Jo Nesbo remains the king of Scandicrime. - Financial Times

Superbly written and magnificently chilling - Sunday Mirror

This being Nesbo there is plenty of deception, death and partial decapitation to come. No Harry Hole this time, but still a sombre delight. There are shades of a Nordic Ripley, or maybe Virginia Andrews on aquavit. Choose your poison - The Times

The Kingdom is a stunning novel from a storyteller with few equals -- Jon Coates - UK Press Syndication
