Blackspoon by [Eagleton, Daniel]

If you were at the centre of a real-life conspiracy, would you even know it?

Charlie has just smuggled five kilos of uncut heroin back from the war in Afghanistan. This much he knows for sure. He also knows that, after he made it through customs, another solider was caught doing the same as him. And that the military policemen who provided safe passage; one of them has been found dead in an apparent suicide, while the other one has gone AWOL. Is it really possible there’s some kind of cover-up going on? Because even if there is –even if Charlie knew that for sure- who’d believe him? After all, he’s a criminal now. Veteran of a war no one quite understands. Praying, hoping. Waiting for whatever’s coming next.

Blackspoon is a pulp crime thriller in the classic mould. Filled with a remarkable cast of losers, cheaters and ne’er-do-wells, its protagonist is a complex, compelling figure hamstrung by his own poor decisions as he’s inexplicably drawn into an underworld rife with drugs, exploitation and institutional corruption. Forced to take decisive action, Charlie’s is an odyssey filled with violence, humour and mostly (although not exclusively) unrequited lust that, even by his own reckoning, he may or may not survive.

Review: A unique tale filled with action, adventure, and enough twists and turns to keep it really interesting. Great if you’re looking for something a little different!
