Editor reviews

In the Evil Day brings international intrigue into the 21st century. Peter Temple's world is one in which anonymous forces with seemingly endless resources attempt to silence anyone who they deem a threat. Enter John Anselm and Con Niemand, two combat-weary men who have come across a dangerous secret.… Nicholas Bell's performance of In the Evil Day is fast-paced, hair-raising, and pause-resisting. Bell nails the thrilling, danger-behind-every-corner tone of Temple's story of dark forces and even darker secrets.

John Anselm's a former Beirut hostage; a war correspondent who went to one war too many. A burnt-out case, he's working for a semi-legal Hamburg surveillance firm and trying to come to terms with his past. Then, into his life comes Con Niemand, ex-mercenary and professional survivor. Niemand has stumbled across evidence of a terrible secret and now he's on the run. Against his will, Anselm is plunged into a world of violence, betrayal and death. He must pit himself against forces he doesn’t understand, forces determined to rebury a secret that can destroy reputations and lives across the globe.

I really enjoyed this story.

OK I love the Melbourne based Jack Irish stories too. This was a little different.
It may be the Northern Hemisphere setting. It may be the development of the story about Anselm and it may be how all the bits pull together, And it could be the creepy world the characters inhabit.
If you can, do try not to skip to the end to find out how it ends.
