Louise Doughty - Black Water (2nd Hand Paperback)
ISBN / GTIN-13 : 9780571278671
Black Water from the writer of Apple Tree Yard.
Harper wakes every night, terrified of the sounds outside his hut halfway up a mountain in Bali. He is afraid that his past as a mercenary has caught up with him - and that his life may now been in danger.
As he waits to discover his fate, he meets Rita, a woman with her own past tragedy, and begins a passionate affair.
Their relationship makes Harper realise that exile comes in many forms - but can Rita and Harper save each other while they are putting each other very much at risk?
Moving between Indonesia, the Netherlands and California, from the 1960's to the 1990's, Black Water turns around the 1965 Indonesian massacres, one of the great untold tragedies of the twentieth century.

"The result pulls off the John Le Carre trick of combining real moral complexity with page-turning excitement and that’s just for starters . . . Doughty’s story-telling is so generous that we also get a touching tale of middle aged love, some gruesomely well-researched history and, almost in passing, a terrific section set in pre-Civil Rights America that many writers might have considered worthy of an entire novel." - Readers Digest.
Louise Doughty is an English fiction and non-fiction writer, and a playwright and journalist. She has worked as a The Daily Telegraph columnist and as a BBC Radio 4 presenter. Her ninth novel appeared in 2019.
