Blackwater is a thriller novelette by Conn Iggulden. It was written as part of the Quick Reads initiative of the 2006 World Book Day.
Blackwater is described as a dark, psychological thriller, signalling a change in genre from an author used to writing historical fiction.
On the forum of his website, Conn described the idea behind the book:
I was asked if I wanted to write a novelette of 15-20,000 words, adult themed. That sort of brief is the sort of thing I used to dream about, so I practically bit their hands off, of course. No writer turns down a brief like that, regardless of what else you have on. It'll be £2.99 and I hope to see it stuffed dog-eared into a few back pockets. It is darker in tone and plot than anything else I've done, but to explain how would be to explain all. It's coming out next year - in March, I think. - Conn Iggulden, 26 July 2005It was also translated into Welsh for the Quick Reads Initiative under the title Dŵr Dwfn.
