Audible 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.

    Love having someone read me a story. Fires in the hearth, rain on the roof, sunny days and surf. Good friends, good food and J S Bach.

    "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.
