CONGO: A private security contractor loses it, with deadly consequences.
IRELAND: An ex-prime minister struggles to contain a dark secret from his time in office.
NEW YORK: A dramatic news story breaks in Paris just as a US senator begins his campaign to run for office.
What connects them? Seemingly nothing - until a young journalist, investigating the death of a tabloid star in a helicopter crash, finds himself caught up in an ever-expanding web of lies.
With echoes of John Le Carré, 24 and James Ellroy, Alan Glynn’s Bloodland is a crime novel of and for our times - a ferocious, paranoid thriller that explores the legacy of corruption in big business and the question of who controls what we know.
