No Good Brother by @TylerKeevil

By Pamelascott

Tim Harding has spent the fishing season in Canada working as a deckhand, making an honest living. When his hot-headed 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 brothers journey down to the Delaney's ranch in the U.S., 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 them at the other end.

I didn't know what to expect from this book as I'd never heard of the book or author before. So I had no expectations. Which can be a good thing. This is the kind of book you can get swept up in and sucked right into. I really enjoyed the way the author explores the brotherly relationship between Tim and Jake. The book involves a long, sometimes devastating journey by land and sea. The novel combines humour, farce and sadness to make a unique reading experience. I love suspense fiction and No Good Brother was no exception. I found the book engrossing.
