Guest: Paul E. Hardisty
Book Review - Reconciliation for the Dead (Affirm Press)
Reconciliation for the Dead is the third instalment in Perth-based Paul E. Hardisty’s Claymore Straker series, following on from the award-winning and best-selling The Abrupt Physics of Dying and The Evolution of Fear. Each are beautifully written, intelligent thrillers that deal with topical international issues. Both a prequel and a sequel to the other novels, Reconciliation for the Dead might just be the best yet – a powerfully imagined story set in the lawless borderlands of Angola and South Africa, where the latter government is fighting a bloody war to destabilise its neighbours. Gripping, searing and perfect in its poise and clarity, this novel lifts Hardisty to the highest rank of international thriller writers.
