Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"In Porter's outstanding near-future thriller, David Eyam, the former head of Britain's Joint Intelligence Committee, is killed by a bomb in Colombia that was apparently aimed at others. His recently estranged close friend and former colleague in the spook business, Kate Lockhart, is surprised to learn she's the main beneficiary of Eyam's will. Her suspicions that the story behind his death is more complex than officially reported are heightened when Eyam's lawyer is gunned down soon after thugs break into his office. While the basic plot — an attempt to uncover a broad government conspiracy against daunting odds — is familiar, Porter (Brandenburg Gate) invests it with urgency and power by taking current legislation drawn up to combat terrorism and projecting how it would play out if special interests and unscrupulous leaders used it to destroy the privacy of individuals. Shaken U.S. readers will wonder how much of the fiction might soon become fact on this side of the Atlantic." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

Absorbing, eerie, and unsettlingly realistic, "The Bell Ringers" is a fearless, Orwellian work from a talented novelist writing at the top of his game.
