Reviews

I read this hungrily ... Its intelligence and bravura characterization will have you turning page after page. A fabulous achievement. * STEPHEN FRY *
A brilliantly clever thriller from a brilliantly clever writer. -- Richard Osman
Murray should be commended for going into the nitty-gritty of how his post-disaster society functions[...] What really distinguishes the book, though, is the creative energy of its world-building: it demonstrates the virtue of using the future as a playground for the imagination rather than trying to second-guess it. * Telegraph: the best thrillers and crime fiction of 2020 *
A taut, thrilling runaround... The Last Day is an impressive dystopian techno-thriller. Murray paints a grim picture of a draconian isolationist Britain, with some vivid descriptions of a much-changed London, and the novel's climax has a neat twist. * Guardian Books of the Month *
A brilliant debutwhich blends apocalyptic drama with a tale of espionage, keeping readers on tenterhooks [...] Fans of Robert Harris will love it. * Daily Express *
