Tara Crowe is on a mission to clean up the gangs that rule the lawless streets alongside Dublin's Grand Canal. Which means confronting Ghost and his notorious crew head on. Ten-year-old Jig is the newest, and proudest, member of that crew. He's lost his granda, his home life is chaos - all that's left are his football and his dog, Bowie. So when Ghost recruits Jig and a woman dies, all hell breaks loose. For Tara, the death offers a chance to finally nail Ghost. But every time she draws close to the gangland boss, obstacles arise and she soon suspects a mole in the station. Shay tries to shield boys like Jig from the Canal Gang, but before long his underworld connections put his own family in the firing line. They're in danger, but Jig is in so deep that Shay struggles to keep any of his promises. The fight for survival becomes more and more brutal. Shay has nothing to lose, but little to live for if he can't hold the black waters of the canal at bay. Fast-paced, compelling and expertly plotted, Black Water introduces a powerful new voice in contemporary crime fiction.
