'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 'Albanian smugglers, Bosnian guerrillas and Central American drug dealers populate Evans's colorful transcontinental story of self-preservation and harebrained derring-do (after Dark Places), starring Paul Wood, an unemployed 29-year-old computer programmer. Paul, a Canadian living in San Francisco, and his beautiful Croatian-born girlfriend, Talena, attempt to save their fraying relationship with a trip to Sarajevo. (The year is 2003.) There, Paul morphs into an inadvertent action-hero when he rescues a South Asian boy and returns him to his family. In the process, Paul encounters Sinisa, the ruthless head of a multimillion-dollar people-smuggling ring, whom he turns to again when Talena's childhood friend Saskia needs his help getting to America. But there's a catch: Wood must design a "hacker tracker" program for the deranged smuggler in exchange for Saskia's freedom. From Albania, where Paul works around the clock to complete the program, he, Talena and Saskia find their way home v -- Publishers Weekly 'This second book is good... The settings are terrific, and Evans has a great eye for place and the little details of life that bring us right to the spot.' -- Globe & Mail 'A fantastic read' -- Booklist 'THE BLOOD PRICEis 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 Praise for TRAIL OF THE DEAD: 'You're hooked. Evans contrives to slip the necessary specialist net-head detail into the plot without being boring or patronising. He can also pin down a character with a few details deftly brushed in ... Not the least satisfying aspect of this pacy thriller for the 21st century is the way things go on happening until the last page.' -- The Times 'In this haunting suspense debut, Evans takes the reader on a page-turning adventure' -- Publishers Weekly 'TRAIL OF THE DEAD is engaging, disturbing, and relentless - an impressive debut novel.' -- C.J. Box, award-winning author of WINTERKILL and T 'I was completely gripped. As the plot unfolded, I found myself constantly surprised ... and at the end all the strands were tied up perfectly. I never wanted to put the book down.' -- Emily Barr
