Godspeed by Nickolas Butler

Synopsis

'My daddy always told me, if it looks too good to be true - then it probably is.'

Bart, Teddy and Cole have been best friends since childhood. Having founded their own small-town construction company, they yearn to build a legacy, something to leave behind to their families. So when Gretchen Connors, a mysterious millionaire lawyer from California, approaches them with a stunning, almost formidable project in the mountains above their town, the three friends convince themselves it's the job which will secure their future.

But what is Gretchen hiding from them? And why does the build have to be complete by Christmas, a near-impossible deadline? With the lines between ambition and greed more slippery and dangerous than the three friends ever imagined, how far will they push themselves and what will be the cost of their dream?

Reviews

'A slow-burning and mesmerising read.' The Herald

'In this showdown between old ways and new money, Butler has produced both a finely tuned literary thriller and a portrait of small-town life as a Petri dish of hope and hubris.' Financial Times

'A tense and twisting tale of class conflict and battling buddies that ends in spectacular fashion.' Sunday Times 

'A study of male friendships, greed and the desire to make meaning.' Daily Mail
