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 world where information is more dangerous than explosives and secrets are more important than human life.
