Compelling action and suspense in the Florida Keys and Bahamas – in the atmospheric new thriller from a writer acclaimed by Dennis Lehane, Michael Connelly and Robert Crais. The Braswells had everything: money, looks and power. But when their eldest son, the family’s shining light, was killed in a freak fishing accident, he took with him a dark secret. Ten years later, in the steamy shallows off the Florida coast, an airliner crashes, killing all aboard. Helping pull corpses from the water, Thorn finds himself drawn into a bizarre conspiracy: someone has developed a high-tech weapon capable of destroying electrical systems in a powerful flash. How are the secretive Braswells and their family-owned company involved? And what does it have to do with the family’s obsessive hunt for the great marlin that killed their golden boy? Featuring two of his most popular characters, police photographer Alexandra Rafferty and reluctant investigator Thorn, BLACKWATER SOUND is James Hall’s finest thriller yet. Loaded with action and suspense, spiced with humour and featuring some of his most unforgettable villains, it bristles with all the heat and tension of a tropical Florida summer.
