9781484183885: Resurrection Day

"Everyone remembers exactly what they were doing the day President Kennedy tried to kill them." * * * In 1962, the Cuban Missile Crisis brought the United States and the Soviet Union to the brink of the nuclear war. The crisis was averted, but what would have happened if war had broken out? In "Resurrection Day," award-winning author Brendan DuBois brings this horrific concept to life... * * * New York Times bestselling author Lee Child: "'Resurrection Day' is the best 'what if' novel in years --- more clever and resonant than Robert Harris's 'Fatherland' --- and all the more scary because disaster was minutes away from happening for real. A book you'll read three times and keep on your shelves forever." New York Times bestselling author William Martin: "What if the Russians had not blinked in October 1962? Brendan DuBois gives us the answer in this smart, suspenseful thriller, a frighteningly believable piece of alternative history. You'll be shocked on every page by a world so familiar in its details that the terrible changes seem commonplace. Brendan DuBois is a fine writer, at the top of his game." Edgar-award winning author S.J. Rozan: "A convincing and terrifying look at an alternative history that could easily have been ours. DuBois's careful research and dark imagination weave together a story that you won't be able to put down --- and that you will be grateful is only fiction." REVIEWS Publisher's Weekly (starred review): "In his first novel outside of his acclaimed Lewis Cole mystery series DuBois delivers an alternate-history thriller that deserves to be as popular as Robert Harris's 'Fatherland.' DuBois postulates an America that has been politically devastated by a nuclear exchange arising from the Cuban missile crisis... Cohesively plotted and smoothly written, steadily exciting and rife with clever conceits, this is what-if thriller fiction at its finest." Booklist (starred review): "Like the best alternate-history fiction (Robert Harris' 'Fatherland' or the novels of Harry Turtledove), DuBois' tale is a feast for the mind, a what-if story that's so plausible it reads, at times, like nonfiction. In every way, this is a first-rate novel and one that is sure to appeal to a wide variety of readers." Rocky Mountain News: "DuBois has done an extraordinary job of envisioning a world that might have been." * * * Winner of the Sidewise Award for Best Alternative History Novel of the Year. * * * With new Author's Afterward for the this edition. * * * Cover art by Jeroen ten Berge.

Review:

Brendan DuBois is an award-winning U.S. author of mystery stories: this alternate-world thriller is very much in the tradition of Robert Harris's Fatherland. Consider this striking blurb line: "Everyone remembered exactly what they were doing the day President Kennedy tried to kill them." History went awry in this world's Cuba crisis, leading to a 1962 nuclear war that devastated Russia, crippled America, and left Britain a major world power smugly giving aid to the USA. Cut to 1972 Boston and ex-soldier Carl Landry, now a newspaper reporter whose coverage of a routine murder is suppressed by military censors. He's unwisely curious, investigates further, and inevitably stirs up a hornets' nest. Attacks, deaths, and disappearances follow. With a new-found girlfriend--an English Times reporter who is not all she seems--Landry uncovers a succession of red-hot secrets about abandoned New York, perfidious British and military plotting, and crucial documents coveted by several factions with different beliefs about their contents. Is Kennedy unjustly despised for starting World War  III? Is the rumor that he's still alive just this timeline's version of the Elvis myth? After building up terrific tension, DuBois delivers satisfying answers. Grimly plausible (apart from a few lapses in "British" dialogue) and worthy of the Fatherland comparisons. --David Langford, Amazon.co.uk
