Cool Water is set in Belfast, barring some exposition, during the period after the troubles when the city was reinventing itself. Pete Haynes' lead character, Donny, is a product of a more violent time and his absolute refusal to temper his extreme violence is the backbone of the story. Cool Water is not light reading but it isn't supposed to be I suspect. Some of the scenes the author describes had me wincing but there's humour and a host of colourful characters to enjoy which more than offset the darkness of Donny Campbell.

I was warned in advance that Cool Water wasn't 'bedtime reading' and that it was rather 'dark'. I would certainly go along with both of those descriptions. If you're of a 'nervous disposition' Cool Water will give you nightmares - it will: simple as that. It is without doubt the most uncompromising novel I have every read. And the reason for that? The fact that all of it could so easily be true...

Donny Campbell is a troubled man with a troubled background but at the same time it's sometimes not hard to feel sorry for him. The world he inhabits is granite-hard and loveless and his ways of taking 'pleasure' are similarly brutal. The circles he moves in are shady and those he moves in those circles with are vile and corrupt but it is their corruption that offers some sharp relief to Donny's own character. Donny has a strange kind of integrity that Pete Haynes' surprisingly subtle touch manages to convey without a trace of sentimentality.

Read Cool Water and experience something that you never could imagine on your own. Pete Hayne's genius is his ability to imagine it for you. He reaches where you would never dare, even in your darkest, wildest nightmares...

Very dark, shows the nasty side of life during the troubles in Belfast, and how the rich and powerful use those they deal with. Well written but some graphic scenes of very unpleasant goings on.
