Publisher's Summary

A helicopter crash off the coast of Ireland sends unexpected ripples through the international community in this intricate new thriller from the author of Winterland and Limitless (now a major motion picture).
Susie Monaghan was on the cusp of stardom when her life was cut short by a tragic helicopter crash. After a full investigation, her death was ruled an accident: case closed. But a hungry young journalist named Jimmy Gilroy isn't buying the official story. Before dying, Susie's path had crossed with an unlikely gallery of powerful men: an ex-prime minister with a carefully guarded secret; the businessman brother of a U.S. senator angling for the Oval Office; and a billionaire investor with his eye on an extremely rare commodity. Might there also be a link between Susie's death and a deranged security contractor operating in Congo?
Piece by piece, Jimmy uncovers a bizarre nexus of coincidence among these disparate people and events, revealing a conspiracy of frightening reach and consequence - one that could cost him his life.
Set against a vividly drawn world of corporate and political intrigue, Alan Glynn's Bloodland is a riveting paranoid thriller of uncommon depth and pause-resistant suspense.

What the Critics Say

“Alan Glynn has created enough twists and thrills to keep readers up late—even without resorting to illegal and dangerous substances.” (The New York Times Book Review)
“Gripping…Glynn builds up the tension skillfully….He seems at home writing about intrigue on both sides of the Atlantic…[and] utterly at ease whether writing about troubled Dublin businessmen, former private military contractors with post-traumatic stress disorder, bitter politicians, or high-flying corporate masters of the universe….But while Bloodland makes some serious points, it never forgets that a good thriller is there to entertain the reader as well as to make [one] think---and this is a very entertaining book.” (The Irish Times, Dublin)
“A compulsive chemical thriller.” (San Francisco Chronicle)
