How far would you go to make your fortune…?
Disillusioned drifter Ben Morris arrives in a steamy South American port looking to escape his demons.
But when he runs into a hard-drinking outcast with a love of firearms, a footloose divorcee, and a psychopathic German, he finds himself entangled in a web of murder, corruption and greed.
The remote and mysterious ‘Snake Water’ is rumoured to hold a fortune in raw diamonds, but to reach it the would-be treasure hunters have to cross the volcanic mountain, desert and primeval swamp which defeated the Conquistadores.
Morris finds himself braving snakes, carnivorous crabs, swarms of mosquitoes and rival gangsters.
But it could be his travelling companions who provide the greatest danger.
And as they reach their ultimate destination, any of them could be expendable…
Snake Water is a classic political thriller full of deadly twists and turns by Alan Williams.
