(From the publisher):
Fear stalks our lives, in the press, on the television, over the airways, across the internet. Everywhere you go, someone somewhere is always watching. Waiting for the mistake that will reveal secrets, truths, lies, the real story or what they want to believe. No longer is anonymity a given right. And small freedoms are sacrificed daily, never to be returned.
There are some people who will fight to the death to protect those freedoms. They live off the grid. Gabriel Corrigan is one such man. But the system says that you cannot opt out, that you have to participate. And it will do whatever it takes to return Gabriel to the fold - alive or dead. It will pursue to the ends of the earth. From the underground tunnels of New York and London to ruins hidden beneath Rome and Berlin to a remote region in Africa that is rumoured to harbour one of history's greatest treasures, Gabriel will fight his running battle for freedom against forces that even he cannot see...
A mesmerizing return to the world so chillingly portrayed in The Traveller, The Dark River is propelled by a vision of a world where both hope and freedom are about to disappear...
