Summary, etc.:
"From the author of Apple Tree Yard, a masterful thriller about espionage, love, and redemption John Harper is in hiding in a remote hut on a tropical island. As he lies awake at night, listening to the rain on the roof, he believes his life may be in danger. But he is less afraid of what is going to happen than of what he's already done. In a local town, he meets Rita, a woman with her own tragic history. They begin an affair, but can they offer each other redemption? Or do the ghosts of the past always catch up with us in the end? Moving between Europe during the Cold War, Civil Rights-era California, and Indonesia during the massacres of 1965 and the subsequent military dictatorship, Black Water explores some of the darkest events of recent history through the story of one troubled man. In this gripping follow-up to Apple Tree Yard, Louise Doughty writes with the intelligence, vivid characterization, and moral ambiguity that make her fiction resonate in the reader's mind long after the final page. "-- Provided by publisher.
"A literary thriller set in Indonesia about a former mercenary dealing with the consequences of his dark past, and with the real secret of what he did during the massacres of the Communists and ethnic Chinese in 1965"-- Provided by publisher.
