LoveReading View on Black Flowers

Shortlisted for the Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year Award 2012.

Neil Dawson is a writer who is trying to understand why his father committed suicide and how it can be connected to a book he owned, The Black Flower. This is a dark, compelling, unsettling read - which we think you should (and will) read in a single sitting - otherwise you will give yourself sleepless nights as you try to figure out what is going on in this multi-layered, grisly mystery.

Black Flowers Synopsis

This is not a story about a girl who disappears. This is the story of a little girl who comes back. As if from nowhere, she appears one day on a seaside promenade, with a black flower and a horrifying story about where she's been. But telling that story will start a chain reaction of dangerous lies and deadly illusions that will claim many more victims in the years to come. When Neil Dawson's father commits suicide, he is obviously devastated. But through his grief, Neil knows something isn't right. Among his father's possessions, he finds a copy of an old novel, The Black Flower. Opening it will take Neil into an investigation full of danger, pain and subterfuge. Hannah Price is also mourning her father, having followed his footsteps into the police force. When she gets assigned to Neil's father's case, it will lead her on a journey into her own past and to the heart of a shattering secret.

Black Flowers Press Reviews

'The most under rated mystery writer on both continents. Black Flowers is a black masterpiece. . . . Read it before they film it. It's that stunning.' --Ken Bruen, author, The Guards
