NOW A MAJOR BBC TV SERIES STARRING COLIN FARRELL, JACK O'CONNELL AND STEPHEN GRAHAM A ship sets sail with a killer on board . . . 1859. A man joins a whaling ship bound for the Arctic Circle. Having left the British Army with his reputation in tatters, Patrick Sumner has little option but to accept the position of ship's surgeon on this ill-fated voyage. But when, deep into the journey, a cabin boy is discovered brutally killed, Sumner finds himself forced to act. Soon he will face an evil even greater than he had encountered at the siege of Delhi, in the shape of Henry Drax: harpooner, murderer, monster . . . 'A tour de force' Hilary Mantel 'Riveting and darkly brilliant' Colm Toibin 'One of my favourite books ever' Richard Osman

Recensioner i media

'A stunning novel that snares the reader from the outset and keeps the tightest grip until its bitter end' -- Financial Times 'A novel that takes us to the limits of flesh and blood. Utterly convincing and compelling, remorselessly vivid and insidiously witty.' -- Martin Amis 'Horrifically gripping' -- Independent on Sunday 'Full of twists, turns, period detail and strong characters' -- The Times 'The North Water has exceptional power and energy' -- Sunday Times 'Terrific - seamed with pitch-black humour and possessed of a momentum that's kept up to the final scene' -- Daily Mail 'A superbly compelling suspense narrative' -- Irish Times
