Críticas:

* 'Brian Moore leads the field with a style that can only be called immaculate. The Colour of Blood is a superbly constructed suspense narrative.' Guardian * 'A Hitchcockian sequence of chases, shaken certainties, mistaken identities, masquerades, detections and escapes. Brian Moore has always shown a mastery of suspense, and having turned his hand to the political thriller he has produced something exemplary.' Sunday Telegraph * 'Surprise is the essence in this beautifully crafted novel. Brian Moore's versatility, his life-long refusal to keep writing the same book over again, is too much taken for granted. He writes simply and economically, but with a true generosity of vision.' Observer

Reseña del editor:

A beautifully written Hitchcockian thriller, full of suspense and intrigue. Somewhere in an unnamed Eastern bloc country, someone is out to silence Cardinal Bem. Is it the Secret Police, or is it - more shockingly - fanatical Catholic activists who believe that Bem, by keeping the peace between Church and State, has finally compromised himself too far? Narrowly escaping an assassination attempt, Bem is abducted by sinister, anonymous men, and spirited away to a 'safe house' against his will. Evading his unknown captors, he is faced with a horrifying proposition: no longer sure of whom he can trust, Bem realises that he alone can avert the revolution which threatens to tear his country apart...

Descripción Paladin, 1988. paperback. Condición: New. UNUSED, GOOD, NOT EX-LIBRARY, shows signs of shelfwear, tanned edges, cover is different to the one on Amazon, 191 pages. With its rapid paceand persistent atmosphere of polite menace Moore has created a brilliant thriller-but it is much more than that. As in Graham Greenes The Power and The Glory the personal crisis of one man of God is set against the greater conflict of Church and State and, despite the overwhelming forces of evil, a spiritual triumph is finally achieved. Superficially, The Colour of Blood may seem less complex but its effect is just as impressive TIME OUT Brian Moore leads the field with a style that can only be called immaculate. The Colour of Blood is a superbly constructed suspense narrative. You can't put it down THE GUARDIAN A Hitchcockian sequence of chases, shaken certainties, mistaken identities, masquerades, detections and escapes. Brian Moore has always shown a mastery of suspense, and having turned his hand now to the political thriller he has produced something exemplary . easily the most accomplished new novel I have read this year SUNDAY TELEGRAPH Surprise is of the essence of this beautifully crafted novel. Brian Moores versatility, his life-long refusal to keep writing the same book over again, is too much taken for granted. He is a novelist who can be read for pleasure . He writes simply and economically, but with a true generosity of vision THE OBSERVER 158. Nº de ref. del artículo: 17344
