‘Ripped from tomorrow’s headlines, Bloodland is irresistible … An exhilarating thriller from the dark heart of the global village.’ – Val McDermid
‘The debate is over … Bloodland is the great Irish novel, no argument. It has it all and it is a cracking read.’ – Ken Bruen
With echoes of John Le Carré, 24 and James Ellroy, Alan Glynn’s follow-up to Winterland is another crime novel of and for our times – a ferocious, paranoid thriller that moves from Dublin to New York via Central Africa, and thrillingly explores the legacy of corruption in big business, the West’s fear of China, the role of back room political players and the question of who controls what we know.
Alan Glynn is a graduate of Trinity College Dublin, where he studied English Literature, and has worked in magazine publishing in New York and as an EFL teacher in Italy. His second novel, Winterland, was published to huge acclaim in 2009 and longlisted for CWA Crime Novel of the Year in 2011, while his first novel Limitless was made into a film starring Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro in Spring 2011.
