An amazing and glorious review of The Night Watchman has come out from ABC Radio in Australia. ABC is the national radio network. http://blogs.abc.net.au/queensland/2014/09/weekend-bookworm-the-night-watchman.html?site=brisbane&program=612_morning
Here is an excerpt from the review:
The Night Watchman is a novel about the pursuit of morally bankrupt men in a country which is also politically and economically on the brink of collapse, a chilling story about the immense tragedy of child abuse in a nation about to hold a "funeral ceremony for the small and hopeful democracy we'd thought that Portugal would one day become." The truth is tragic and the telling of the tale is quite masterful.
"Evoking the sounds and smells of Portugal and its murky past with pinpoint accuracy," The Night Watchman is more than a mere murder mystery; it is a story of moral despair and personal torment, of economic collapse and social resilience.
A first class psychological thriller with a plot that races at breakneck speed on its way to a breathless conclusion, Richard Zimler has written yet another superb novel which succeeds in being both unique and incredibly compelling.
