Review

'So glad to see this book delayed, it deserves to go into trade pbk. and be given a big push. The story starts at breakneck pace and never lets up. There is murder, corruption by pharmaceutical companies and thrills aplenty. Also there is some interesting use of computer hacking which Jon writes about authoritively from his other life as a programmer. This is the book we have been waiting for from Jon, his other two were good, in fact very good but this is a big step up and there is no reason for it not to be a bestseller' (John McKone - Hachette Australia rep)

Praise for Jon Evans:

'If you're the sort to get easily paranoid, you may want to approach Jon Evans' latest book with caution . . . Evans has created a new genre, the travelogue as fast-paced action thriller. Invisible Armies is certainly fun, with its quirky characters and lively plot, but it is also a smart and thoughtful look at the politics of activism, the pervasive power of big business and the global street war that is being waged between the two.' (Calgary Herald)

'INVISIBLE ARMIES is an intriguing, pacy read and Mr Evans shows great potential.' (Economist)

'Anti-globalization versus international corporate greed . . . a fast-paced, politically engaging thriller.' (Globe and Mail, Canada on INVISIBLE ARMIES)

'Montreal-based Jon Evans weaves the unlikely components of globalization and corporate exploitation of the Third World into an unpredictable, frightening thriller . . . There's a kind of appealing chaos theory to Evans' books, which tend to unfold in ways surprising to veteran thriller readers who think they can figure out where things are going. GRADE: A' (Vancouver Province)

'Waterloo-born and university-educated Evans tells a heck of a tale. Globalization protesters, political intrigue and adversarial computer hackers; what's not to like? INVISIBLE ARMIES is an adrenalin rush from start to finish and Evans has Andrew Pyper's ability to make great characters.' (Kitchener-Waterloo Record)

I was completely gripped. (Emily Barr on TRAIL OF THE DEAD)

'THE BLOOD PRICE is knowledgeable about Balkan history, the current fragile peace maintained by NATO and the multi-billion-dollar international refugee-smuggling industry. Evans can write, too.' (Washington Post)

'An action-based thriller for conspiracy buffs. Montreal writer Jon Evans has served up a fast-paced tale that moves from India to Paris to Las Vegas, as Danielle Leaf finds herself in the middle of a war between a multinational mining company, third-world farmers, and a legion of anti-globalization protestors. In a world in which black is seldom black and white is never white, it seems everyone is prepared to use violence to obtain their goals.' (Sherbrooke Record)

Book Description

Prize-winning Jon Evans's breakout book is a twisty high-tec, high-adrenalin chase thriller for the 21st century
