Three Brothers follows the fortunes of Harry, Daniel, and Sam Hanway, a trio of brothers born on a postwar council estate in Camden Town. Marked from the start by curious coincidence, each boy is forced to make his own way in the world—a world of dodgy deals and big business, of criminal gangs and crooked landlords, of newspaper magnates, backbiters, and petty thieves. From bustling, cut-throat Fleet Street to hallowed London publishing houses, from the wealth and corruption of Chelsea to the smoky shadows of Limehouse and Hackney, this is an exploration of the city, peering down its streets, riding on its underground, and drinking in its pubs and clubs.

Quotes & Awards

  • Three Brothers, an amalgam of social satire and noirish thriller, is vintage Ackroyd.”

    Financial Times

  • “Intriguing, a clever romp and a rapid page-turner.”

    Minneapolis Star Tribune

  • “London is a major character in the novel. In Ackroyd’s accomplished hands the city becomes a mystical place, where visions abound. Highly recommended.”

    Daily Mail (London)

  • Three Brothers is an alternative autobiography, a ghost story, and a murder mystery all in one slim volume…The waspish vignettes of literary London and fusty academe are a delight. The air is full of poison—and echoes of other Ackroyd novels…The brilliant result is the quintessence of Ackroyd.

    Daily Telegraph (London)

  • Three Brothers [is] a London novel which is permeated by Dickens…The themes—lost childhoods and crime—are Dickensian, and the novel is suffused with the author’s awareness of the strangeness and often loneliness of the bleak streets of London. There is melodrama and comedy, and this too is Dickensian…A book full of rich and sudden moments of delight.”

    The Scotsman (Edinburgh)
