Someone is assassinating the financial industry’s most powerful players—in cold blood and in broad daylight—in this intricate, eerily relevant thriller from Alan Glynn, the award-winning author of Bloodland and Limitless.

On a bright Saturday morning, a Wall Street investment banker is shot dead while jogging in Central Park. Hours later, one of New York City’s savviest hedge-fund managers is gunned down outside a restaurant. Are these killings a coordinated terrorist attack or just a coincidence? Investigative journalist Ellen Dorsey has a hunch they’re neither, and when an attempt is made on the life of another CEO, her theory is confirmed. The story blows wide open, and as Ellen races to stay ahead of the curve, her path collides with that of a recession-hit architect, Frank Bishop, whose daughter’s disappearance may be tied to the murders.

Set deep in a shadow world of corrupt business deals and radical politics—with a plot that echoes today’s headlines in haunting and unexpected ways—Graveland is a mind-blowing thriller that intensifies with every page.

Quotes & Awards

  • Graveland paints wonderfully detailed characters on the broad canvas of greed, with a plot ripped from as-yet-unwritten but disturbingly credible headlines. A hugely relevant, undeniably compelling thriller.”

    Chris Pavone, New York Times bestselling author

  • “Glynn takes the pitch-perfect paranoia and the journalist-as-hero motif of the 1970s and matches them up with crimes that are indelibly contemporary…Graveland is everything a conspiracy thriller should be: paranoid, tense, and ultimately exhilarating.”

    Richmond Times-Dispatch

  • Graveland proceeds at a rattling pace…A host of disparate characters—among them a pair of radicalized brothers, a bereft father, a crusading journalist, and a Wall Street kingpin—are skillfully interwoven, creating a story that is both a contemporary take on the timeless clash between the powerless many and the powerful few and a commentary on the perception, interpretation, and manipulation of the narratives that shape our lives….An invigorating slice of conspiracy noir, Graveland is simultaneously a heartbreaking account of the human cost of corporate greed.”

    Irish Times

  • “[Glynn is] a writer with a distinct voice and an extraordinary ability to generate pace and tension…A gripping and cleverly constructed thriller…it is an eerily prescient read….Graveland really could have been torn from today’s headlines.”

    Irish Independent

  • “The underbelly of the New York financial scene is uncovered in all of its decidedly unglamorous ‘glory’ in this timely thriller…The Edgar Award–nominated Glynn’s no-frills prose deftly captures the not-so-pretty side of New York’s financial elite while serving up a compelling mystery.”

    Library Journal 

  • “Utterly, convincingly unpredictable. This is dark territory, where titans of industry brandish soul-crushing power with ruthless ambition, corrupting the very core of the system that made them rich in the first place.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • Graveland is an excellent novel—smart and edgy yet possessing real substance and depth.  Glynn is fast becoming one of the best contemporary thriller writers around.”

    R. J. Ellory, author of A Quiet Belief in Angels

  • “Although Irish, Glynn spent four years in New York City and knows the ways of both its rich and its poor…[and] he clearly knows how to move a plot with many moving pieces…Timely.”

    Shelf Awareness

  • “Hugely impressive…A book that gleefully surprises at every turn…Disturbing yet utterly engrossing, [Graveland is] a very modern, very original, and very good thriller indeed.”
