Sitting beside him in the hospital, Charlie is thinking that if Whisky dies, he won’t know which songs to choose for his funeral. Whisky is his only brother, more than that, his twin: Alpha, the first born – the brightest star in the constellation, the person Charlie has loved and hated, pushed and pulled against all his life. Now Whisky lies in a hospital bed in a maze of wires and tubes that connect him to the machines that help him breathe, keep his heart beating. He cannot move or speak and his only brother no longer knows him.But this is no place to begin; in fact, this may very well be the end.

Reader Reviews from Amazon and Goodreads
Funny, sad, heartfelt and beautifully written, this story …will keep you on tenterhooks … from first page to last.
I read this book in two sittings and loved every second of it. … my favourite adult contemporary read of the year.
Whisky Charlie Foxtrot is a love story, beautifully written and elegantly crafted.
The characters are well developed, each with their own motivation, each memorable; the tone is conversational, the writing assured.
The novel is beautifully written … a story that will linger with you. The characters really leap from the page.
We care so much about these people that we can’t stop reading – like Charlie, we fear for the worst and hope for the best.
Terrific. … manages to tackle difficult subjects and situations realistically and emotionally. A beautiful and touching story about the relationship between brothers. Superbly created characters who are all realistically flawed.
