The gripping thriller of a woman betrayedby time, fate, and someone close to her, featuring the ever-shrewd clericaldetective Father Anselm
William Brodrick stuns in this thriller featuring the brilliant criminal lawyer-turned-monk/detective, Father Anselm. In The Day of the Lie, Father Anselm receives a visit from an old friend and former war correspondent with a dangerous story to tell—the story of a Roza Mojeska, an Eastern European revolutionary who was betrayed by someone close to her during the icy grip of the Cold War. After her betrayal, arrest, and imprisonment, Roza was forced to make a terrible choice that haunts her to this day. Now, Father Anselm is called upon to investigate this betrayal—and its connection to his friend.Father Anselm must peel back years of history, decades of secrets, and a half-century of lies of the brutal and oppressive Soviet occupation of Poland in order to expose a truth so shocking that an entire generation was killed to keep it hidden. The Day of the Lie is the gripping, intricate mystery that perceptively examines guilt, redemption, and the agonizing struggle for freedom.
