The Night of Knives Reviews

'Scary and graphic' -- Sydney Morning Herald on THE NIGHT OF KNIVES 'Thought-provoking ... INVISIBLE ARMIES is an intriguing, pacy read and Mr Evans shows great potential.' -- Economist '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 'You're hooked ... pacy thriller for the 21st century' -- The Times on THE TRAIL OF THE DEAD 'Anti-globalization versus international corporate greed ... a fast-paced, politically engaging thriller.' -- Globe and Mail, Canada on INVISIBLE ARMIES 'In this haunting, suspense debut, Evans takes the reader on a page-turning adventure' -- Publishers Weekly on TRAIL OF THE DEAD 'I was completely gripped.' -- Emily Barr on TRAIL OF THE DEAD 'TRAIL OF THE DEAD is engaging, disturbing, and relentless - an impressive debut novel.' -- C.J. Box, award-winning author of Winterkill and Trophy Huny 'Reading BLOOD PRICE reminded me of being a kid running down a too-steep hill, going faster and faster so that you can barely get your feet in front of you quickly enough to stop, loving every second of it. You can't stop. You don't want to stop ... I wanted to keep reading to find out what the hell happened next.' -- Quill & Quire Praise for Jon Evans: -- .
