DARK WATER by Parker Bilal is a thriller about a Makana, a private investigator with a complicated past who is drawn into doing a job for the British government and quickly the job becomes infinitely more complex, layered and more personal than Makana ever though it would.
Bilal has created this character named Makana who is a troubled man who has experienced great loss in his life, but the reader pulls for him because Makana wants to overcome his past and live for his future, it's just that his past keeps haunting him. Most every character (except a loyal and pure of heart taxi driver) Makana comes across in DARK WATER having cloudy motives, a penchant for lying, and hiding the truth through misdirection and guile. Bilal drops clues, some blatant and some quite subtle, about what is really going on; as the reader, several times I had to go back to previous scenes to grasp what Makana was figuring out. As with many book series that I have jumped into in the middle, I did find myself thinking this book would be enhanced had I read the previous books in the series.
Full of twists and double crosses, DARK WATER will keep the reader holding their breath and wondering how Makana will escape all of the traps set for him.
I received a copy of this book as part of the Goodreads Giveaway program. ( )
