“...Tsiolkas has written an absolute ripper.” — The Age
He asked the water to lift him, to carry him, to avenge him. He made his muscles shape his fury, made every stroke declare his hate.
His whole life, Danny Kelly's only wanted one thing: to win Olympic gold. Everything he's ever done - every thought, every dream, every action - takes him closer to that moment when the world will see him for what he is: the fastest, the strongest and the best.
He's Barracuda, he's the psycho, he's everything his challengers want to be but don't have the guts to get there. He's going to show them all.
He would be first, everything would be alright when he came first, all would be put back in place. When he thought of being the best, only then did he feel calm.
A searing and provocative novel by the acclaimed author of the international bestseller The Slap.
