White Tears Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

'A stunning, audacious new thriller... It will shock you, horrify you, unsettle you, and that's exactly the point.

As brave as it is brutal, it lets nothing and nobody off the hook' NPR'A book that everyone should be reading right now' TIME New Yorkers Carter and Seth chop up old music to make it new again, ripping off black culture to line white pockets.

They are young, hungry and talented. But one day they stumble on an old blues song - an undiscovered gem just waiting to be found - and land themselves in a heap of trouble. Seeking answers, Seth travels deep into the heart of the old South, accompanied by Carter's bewitching sister Leonie.

But this is America, where ghosts lie uneasy in shallow graves and tugging one loose thread can unravel a bloody history of injustice. And the closer Seth gets to the haunting truth, the more he feels pursued . . . White Tears is a nail-biting ride through the terrifying spectre of America's past.

It's about black lives and white privilege and the music that runs through the country's veins like blood.
