'There were times I felt I would always be death's passenger. It moved one step ahead of me wherever I went, letting its shadow fall across me. It carried me on; shaded me from the world other people lived in.'

Leaving behind his life of violence in Brazil's darkest shadows, Zico is determined to become a better man. But it seems his old life isn't quite done with him yet when he's tasked with making one last kill. It's one that could get him everything he has ever wanted; a house, some land, cash in his pocket, a future for him and his girlfriend, Daniella. But this one isn't like all the others. This one comes at a much higher price.

THE DARKEST HEART is a journey through the shadowy heart of Brazil and the even darker mind of a killer, where fear is a death sentence and the only chance of survival might mean abandoning the only good thing you've ever known.

MEDIA REVIEWS
[A] gripping thriller with real depth of character - SUNDAY TIMES on Red Winter

A superbly shivery atmosphere - THE TIMES on Red Winter

Once again Dan Smith has produced a first class historical thriller that will satisfy the most demanding of crime fans, while exploring the consequences of unchecked military might and the persistence of the human spirit. Smith's prose is crisp, his sense of pace flawless and his appreciation of the mundane terrors of warfare nothing short of masterly - CRIMEFICTIONLOVER (blog) on Red Winter

Showing the same skills that he exercised in his previous novel, Smith has fashioned a story of page-turning intensity that simultaneously possesses real depth of characterisation - SUNDAY TIMES on Red Winter

It's amazing. Try it today - I can't recommend it enough! - WATERSTONES BOOKSHOP REVIEWS on The Child Thief

A better class of thriller - INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY on Dark Horizons

Atmospheric ... This vivid thriller has echoes of Conrad's HEART OF DARKNESS - BIG ISSUE CYMRU on Dry Season
