In the Evil Day Summary

In the Evil Day by Peter Temple

The Cold War is long dead but the trade in deceit and lies is still running hot. In Hamburg, John Anselm is hiding from the ghosts he has left behind in foreign war zones. He spends his days working for a surveillance firm. At night he drinks too much, paranoid about the suspicions he glimpses in the eyes of strangers. In London, Caroline Wishart calls herself an expose journalist. The story she has stumbled on could make her career-or is she playing somebody else's game? Into both their lives comes ex-mercenary Con Niemand, bearing an explosive secret, a secret with the power to topple governments and destroy them all. A powerful and compelling thriller, In the Evil Day conjures a 21st century world where information is more dangerous than explosives and secrets are more important than human life.

In the Evil Day Reviews

A truly international 21st century thriller with an exquisite denouement...there is a carefully measured build-up of tension and an angry hornet's nest of menace ... The characters are real, the action convincing and the writing style satisfyingly literate - Guardian Sharp, smart...this will grip you from beginning to end - Time Out In the Evil Day combines the sparse, precise and frankly killer prose which made The Broken Shore such a treat and puts it to perfect service in a book which begs to be read and, ultimately, filmed - Dublin Evening Herald Another triumph for this fine writer - Daily Telegraph There can be few pleasures greater than discovering an author whose work is so consistently good that the anticipation of their next book is itself a joy...Polished gems of De Beers quality...In The Evil Day is a gritty realistic international conspiracy...the pace is insistent and driving from the outset and never lets up. Temple is an intelligent writer and cleverly spins out the suspense and his characterisation, while spare, is at the same time richly detailed in a way that only gifted writes manage. Many books are described as thrillers, few of them truly are. In The Evil Day is a rare exception - Sunday Express
