This was the house that would change their fortunes…
Best friends since childhood, Bart, Teddy and Cole run their own small-town construction company, True Triangle. When the mysterious Gretchen Connors, a millionaire lawyer from California, approaches them with a stunning, almost formidable house project in the mountains above town, the three friends convince themselves it’s the job which will change everything.
But in a world increasingly about the haves and have nots, how dangerous is it to dream big?
A slow-burning and mesmerising read.
In this showdown between old ways and new money, Butler has produced both a finely tuned literary thriller and a portrait of small-town life as a Petri dish of hope and hubris.
A tense and twisting tale of class conflict and battling buddies that ends in spectacular fashion.
A study of male friendships, greed and the desire to make meaning.
The writing is careful, considered; the story allowed to gradually spool out while tension builds quietly and relentlessly. It’s only after the explosion – sudden, shocking – that you realise every word prior had led inevitably to that moment . . . Godspeed manages to deliver a credible kind of redemption without compromising the book’s vivid and deeply earned sense of environmental, elemental and emotional realism.
