The Dying Light

The Dying Light - Henry Porter Kate Lockhart returns to England from America to mourn her friend and lover, David Eyam. She is shocked to discover that although estranged for years Eyam has bequeathed her everything … including a conspiracy theory that could bring down the current government. “Big Brother” is indeed watching.

Henry Porter brings Orwell’s 1984 into the 21st century and, if his afterward is to be believed (and why not?), much of this book is fact based. Although I found this book a little difficult to get into I plodded through the first hundred pages because a friend had loved it and loaned me the book. I always try to finish books loaned to me. I was certainly glad a persevered. One of the best political thrillers I have read in a long time.
