The Statement Summary

The Statement: Reissued by Brian Moore

Pierre Brossard is on the run. For his life. From a determined squad of unknown hit-men. From his former 'friends'. From his past. Condemend to death in absentia by French courts for crimes against humanity during the war, he has been in hiding for over forty years. Now, perhaps, justice will be done.

The Statement Reviews

'Once you have opened its first page you won't be able to stop reading. A superbly plotted story with a brilliant twist' * A.N. Wilson *
'A thriller with a difference. The plot is as taught as the prose is tight - both qualities reminiscent of Graham Greene' * Sunday Express *
'A thriller in which crises of conscience are as tense as the escalating manhunt' * Guardian *
'The Statement blends conscience and guilt with fast-moving storytelling. Brian Moore is a man of profound human insight as well as a master storyteller ... the most subtle, most readable, least pushy of guides' * Sunday Telegraph *
