Summary

A high-stakes adventure of love, loss, masculinity and morality, the glorious new novel from award-winning author Tyler Keevil introduces two unlikely outlaws.

Tim Harding has spent the fishing season in Canada working as a deckhand, making an honest living. When his hotheaded younger brother tracks him down at the shipyards in Vancouver, Tim senses trouble. Jake is a drifter, a dreamer, an ex-con, and now he needs help in repaying a debt to the notorious Delaney gang.

So begins an epic, unpredictable odyssey across land and sea as the brother's journey down to the Delaneys' ranch in the United States, chased by customs officials, freak storms and the gnawing feeling that their luck is about to run out. But while they may be able to outrun the law, there's no escaping the ghosts of their tragic family past, and neither is prepared for who and what awaits at the other end.

Quick-witted and beautifully observed, No Good Brother is an exquisite portrait of brotherly love and loyalty, examining the loss of innocence and the ties that bind us.

Critic reviews

"Keevil's writing is unmissable...quite simply a brilliant writer." (Viv Groskop, author of The Anna Karenina Fix)
"A tender and at turns thrilling novel about grief and the way it seeps unshakably into the lives of the living. Keevil's storytelling is both elegant and meaty and his prose stunning as per; I could almost taste the bitter sea air of Vancouver's North Shore." (Racjel Trsize, author of Fresh Apples)
"Quite a story. Keevil's prose proceeds with the laconic madness of a patient horse, and the same ability to buck and kick." (Cyan Jones, author of The Dig)

Tyler Keevil's best novel so far

I've read his other work and loved Drive but this story is something else. Keevil's writing has always be well constructed but the plot is also excellently well paced with plot twists I never saw coming and an ending that made me smile.
