Just as the hit television drama of the early 80's revealed the contemptible lives of oil barons in Dallas, author Benjamin J. Frazier unleashes an unapologetic examination of the underbelly in sultry and relentless Georgetown, South Carolina. With Pyke Elliott as our unsettled guide, the pages of this erotically-charged high drama come alive, with the distinction only a Southern writer can explore with confidence. Once in a while a novel is written that defies our sense of morality, however corrupt that may be. Thicker Than Water is such a read, sexy with an exaggerated masculinity. Author Benjamin J. Frazier dares to exploit and expose the raw uninhibited entanglement of business and pleasure in southern culture. This is not a cool mint julep on a balmy southern afternoon, but rather a shot of questionable moonshine with a chaser of speed.
