When Syme discovers another undercover policeman on the Council, however, he starts to question his role in their operations. And as a desperate chase across Europe begins, his confusion grows, as well as his confidence in his ability to outwit his enemies. But he has still to face the greatest terror that the Council has: a man named Sunday, whose true nature is worse than Syme could ever have imagined ...

The Man Who Was Thursday was recommended to me by another bookseller. Now I have read it I’m recommending it too, just so I can talk about it with more people. There are so many twists and odd occurrences to discuss... More
