When Captain Flint Was Still A Good Man by Nick Dybek
Published by: Corsair
Available: Now in Paperback/Hardback £12.99

When Captain Flint Was Still A Good Man had a brilliant concept, and although it wasn’t my usual genre choice, I am always taken by a book that manages to still engross me in a story-world that I could learn to love. One of my favourite things about Nick Dybek’s book was the dialogue between the children, that came across so adult that it showed growth in the characters across the rising suspense. The setting was well drawn, a place I could see as I read more—painting a scenic element of your average thriller, though fragments of dilemmas and unforgettable actions in the best way possible. Cal was a very intricate character, who had a father that felt like a stranger to him, and that showed the emotion that carried the novel into a fast-moving, tragedy that was a shockingly great read.
