The Day of the Lie reviewed in The Independent
03:14 Wednesday, 15th August, 2012
The Day of the Lie by William Brodrick has received a strong review in The Independent:
"William Brodrick is often labelled as a crime writer, but he is more than that. His hero, Father Anselm, is a Gilbertine monk who was once a criminal barrister. In The Day of the Lie an old friend begs him to investigate crimes committed in communist Warsaw, which leads to a serious and profound discussion of the very nature of justice and of punishment. Revelations come in waves, one after another, during the last hours of this story, read with sensitive, world-weary intelligence by Gordon Griffin. Anselm returns to his monastery even wiser than he was at the start. And we listeners feel much the same." - Sue Gaisford, The Independent
