|In a world where security cameras prove what you have done and databases define who you are, the few who know how to manipulate the technology can play God. They can change the future; they can alter the past. They can make big money, they can save the world, and they can get away with murder over and over again.
Danielle Leaf grew up believing she was safe. Now she knows she was wrong.
|Award-winning author Jon Evans returns with new heroes and a compulsive, fast-paced story that examines issues of Third World exploitation and the extreme edge of anti-globalization activism. Invisible Armies is Cold War suspense for the modern age, a thriller that looks behind the power of protests and the politics of big business.|
"Thought-provoking ... Invisible Armies is an intriguing, pacy read and Mr Evans shows great potential."
"A tough-as-nails technothriller... People who aren't morons and like thriller novels ought to read this."
"Evans has created a new genre, the travelogue as fast-paced action thriller. Invisible Armies is certainly fun, with its quirky characters and lively plot, but it is also a smart and thoughtful look at the politics of activism, the pervasive power of big business and the global street war that is being waged between the two."
"Evans has created a remarkable novel in this tale of corporate skulduggery and high-tech warfare ... will keep you turning the pages until the stunning climax is reached."
"Another entertaining adventure ... Evans, something of a globetrotting adventurer himself, keeps growing as a storyteller, and this is his most accomplished thriller yet."
"Exuberant, idiosyncratic ... fresh and entertaining."
"Everything a thriller should be ... Political but not preachy, adventurous but not clichιd, this is a perfect summer read."
"An unpredictable, frightening thriller ... There's a kind of appealing chaos theory to Evans' books, which tend to unfold in ways surprising to veteran thriller readers who think they can figure out where things are going. GRADE: A"
"Invisible Armies is an adrenalin rush from start to finish and Evans has Andrew Pyper's ability to make great characters."
"An action-based thriller for conspiracy buffs ... a world in which black is seldom black and white is never white."
"Buckle up for a fast paced, action packed thrill ride ... its safe to say that the ending will come as a surprise. In fact, so will the middle."
"Evans weaves a plot so tightly wound with twists that it would be near impossible to tell you any more ... extremely and eerily plausible ... he avoids the pitfalls of airplane thrillers by serving up characters who are exceptionally nuanced."
"For his third international thriller Evans has taken a pathway similar to that of The Constant Gardener: a mix of industrial espionage, a series of murders, cameras that track every move of every person of interest, multinationals more powerful than many small countries, it offers seemingly everything."
"Paced with the explosive tension of a third-period breakaway in a tie game ... a rapidly growing master of this adrenalin-fed style of writing, Evans is thought provoking without preaching and detailed without slowing the pace. ... a mystery, a thriller and a travelogue that will stun you with its climax."
"A thrilling, book-long chase scene ... a breathless, exhilarating read that's full of surprises."
"[Evanss] detailed descriptions, whether of the heat and smells of an Indian market or the rhythm of a Parisian neighbourhood, bring the settings to life. With some likeable characters, some terrifying ones, and a fantastic plot, Invisible Armies should conquer new readers and please old fans."
"Anti-globalization versus international corporate greed ... a fast-paced, politically engaging thriller."
