This review is from: The Dying Light (Hardcover)
I thought Porter's previous novel, Brandenburg, was a great thriller, dealing with the fall of the Berlin Wall twenty years ago. In that the East German secret police and government kept a close watch on their supposed 'enemies'.
In the Dying Light Porter has written another clever tale, but as he says with a similar subject line, government surveillance, only this time its Britain in the near future.
And the clever thing about it is, it all sounds so plausible and innocent... and in fact some of it is even true.
Nothing too racy or raucous, yet written with a good pace, shortish chapters with a few hooks, and plenty to keep you guessing as to how it will turn out.
