Product Description

The latest in the ingenious, gripping Father Anselm series by Gold Dagger award-winner William Brodrick.

Featuring the brilliant criminal lawyer-turned-monk/detective whose specialty is the intersection of murderous deeds and moral questions, the Father Anselm thrillers are “reminiscent of the early works of John le Carré . . . blending sharp suspense and literary resonance” (Jeffery Deaver).

In The Day of the Lie, Father Anselm receives a visit from an old friend with a dangerous story to tell―the story of a revolutionary in Eastern Europe during the icy grip of the Cold War.

As a young woman, Roza Mojeska was part of an underground resistance group in Communist Poland. Betrayed by someone close to her―someone still unknown―she was sent to the dark of a government prison and forced to make a terrible choice that would haunt her to this day.

Now, decades later, Father Anselm peels back years of history, decades of secrets, a half-century of lies, in order to expose a truth that victim and torturer would keep hidden. A perceptive examination of guilt and redemption, The Day of the Lie is a gripping, intricate mystery.

William Brodrick was an Augustinian friar before leaving the order to become a barrister. He won the Crime Writers’ Association Gold Dagger Award in 2009, and is the author of six novels featuring Father Anselm, all available or forthcoming from Overlook.
