The Man With No Face (Paperback)Peter May (author)
- 10+ in stock
Originally published in 1981, Peter May’s standalone thriller holds fresh relevance seen through the prism of 2019. As in his Lewis trilogy, there’s a Noirish cast to May’s writing that serves this swift-paced thriller well and the political mood of 1970’s Brussels is an intriguing mix of gritty, period machismo and all-too-prescient political concerns. Fans of his work and newcomers alike will find much to enjoy.
A REPORTER WITH NO FEAR
1979. Jaded Edinburgh journalist Neil Bannerman is sent to Europe, intent on digging up dirt. Yet it is danger he discovers, when two British men are found murdered.
A CHILD WITH NO FATHER
One victim is a journalist, the other a Cabinet Minister: the double-assassination witnessed by the former's autistic daughter. This girl recalls every detail about her father's killer - except for one.
THE MAN WITH NO FACE
With those around him rocked by the tragedy, Bannerman is compelled to follow his instincts. He is now fighting to expose a murderous conspiracy, protect a helpless child, and unmask a remorseless killer.

“Political thriller set at the heart of Brussels and the EU”
Very apt to be reading this at the very time our position with Europe is almost just as tragic as the murder in the book. There’s an added edge to the Brussels intrigue and darkness and this book captures that and... More
