In the Evil Day

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 whose business is just this side of legal. At night he drinks too much, paranoid about the suspicions he glimpses in the eyes of strangers. In London, Caroline Wishart calls herself an exposi journalist. Her speciality is the sex lives of British politicians. 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 Neimand, bearing an explosive secret, a secret with the power to topple governments and destroy them all. Cleverly plotted and peppered with dark irony and lean prose, In the Evil Day conjures a world where information is more dangerous than explosives and secrets are worth more than human life.
