The Third Brother

by Nick McDonell

The Third Brother Synopsis

Mike is spending the summer working for a magazine in Hong Kong when Christopher Dorr, a brilliant journalist, goes missing in Thailand. Mike's editor decides to send him to Bangkok to report on the drug-tourism crackdown, but Mike's real mission is to find Dorr, who is also an old friend of his parents. This is the beginning of a vertiginous journey that propels Mike into fast and seedy nights in Thailand and back to New York, to a home wrecked by violence. The Third Brother moves with the speed of a bullet to portray a young man - and a family - shattered by lies and by excess.

Thompson * 'Nick McDonell is . . . another literary wunderkind who has dared to engage the subject of September 11 . . . one of the best evocations of that day I've read.' Jay McInerney * Guardian *
