Product description

Review

Harry Lawton—an ex-boxer, ex-soldier and ex-police detective—is working as a private investigator in London in 1909 at the start of Matthew Carr’s richly detailed historical thriller “Black Sun Rising” (Pegasus). At times 'Black Sun Rising' displays the action of a vintage Richard Harding Davis adventure. Other passages exude the spookiness of an Edgar Allan Poe tale. The novel is thick with intrigue and incident, balanced by flashes of lyricism. Most impressive perhaps is its flawed yet persistent hero: hobbled by fits of epilepsy but so devoted to his work and his new friends that “he would not leave Barcelona until justice was done. -- Tom Nolan, Wall Street Journal

“A superior mystery. Carr excels at incorporating early 20th-century Spanish political developments into a suspenseful and clever plot line. Philip Kerr fans will be pleased.” , Publishers Weekly (starred)

“Carr combines fiction with fact (including historical characters). The result is a vivid portrayal of Barcelona’s ‘Tragic Week’ of political and social conflict, a skillfully crafted account that is ultimately as much history as mystery.”, Booklist

"A thrilling quest for justice. As exciting as it is enlightening from its first pages to its satisfying end.", The New York Times Book Review [Praise for 'The Devils of Cardona']

"Full of engaging male and female characters, with a great sense of time and place. A treat." -- Kate Mosse, New York Times bestselling author [Praise for 'The Devils of Cardona']

"Carr recreates for us a dramatic time and place filled with complex characters and issues that resonate powerfully with our own time." -- Matthew Pearl, #1 New York Times bestselling author of 'The Dante Club' [Praise for 'The Devils of Cardona']

“Fans of Philip Kerr and politically tinged historical detective fiction should keep an eye out for this one. Black Sun Rising is a richly complex read, a well-balanced, multicourse meal in a world of fatty, fast-food reads, fascinating and provocative, as bracing (and often eye-opening) as it is entertaining.” -- Kevin Burton Smith, Mystery Scene

Roiling with action, real historical figures, and proto-Nazi villains, Black Sun Rising is as exciting and vibrant as historical crime fiction gets. -- Lisa Henricksson, Air Mail
