Product description

Review

'A stunning novel that snares the reader from the outset and keeps the tightest grip until its bitter end' (Financial Times)

'A novel that takes us to the limits of flesh and blood. Utterly convincing and compelling, remorselessly vivid and insidiously witty.' (Martin Amis)

'Horrifically gripping' (Independent on Sunday)

'Full of twists, turns, period detail and strong characters' (The Times)

'The North Water has exceptional power and energy' (Sunday Times)

'Terrific – seamed with pitch-black humour and possessed of a momentum that's kept up to the final scene' (Daily Mail)

'A superbly compelling suspense narrative' (Irish Times)
