Synopsis

Betrayed. A price on his head. It's easy to survive, until they threaten her too...



Claymore Straker is a fugitive with a price on his head. Wanted by the CIA for acts of terrorism he did not commit, his best friend has just been murdered and Rania, the woman he loves, has disappeared. Betrayed by those closest to him, he must flee the sanctuary of his safe house in Cornwall and track her down. As his pursuers close in, Clay follows Rania to Istanbul and then to Cyprus, where he is drawn into a violent struggle between the Russian mafia, Greek Cypriot extremists, and Turkish developers cashing in on the tourism boom.



As the island of love descends into chaos, and the horrific truth is unveiled, Clay must call on every ounce of skill and endurance to save Rania and put an end to the unimaginable destruction being wrought in the name of profit.



Gripping, exhilarating, and above all, frighteningly realistic, The Evolution of Fear is a startling, eye-opening read that demands the question: how much is truth, and how much is fiction?



'I'm a sucker for genuine thrillers with powerful redemptive themes, but what spoke to me more strongly than anything was the courage, integrity and passion with which this novel is written' Eve Seymour, Cheltenham Standard



`A solid, meaty thriller - Hardisty is a fine writer and Straker is a great lead character' Lee Child



`A Stormer of a thriller: vividly written, utterly tropical, totally gripping' Peter James

Canadian Paul Hardisty has spent twenty-five years working all over the world as an engineer, hydrologist and environmental scientist. He has roughnecked on oil rigs in Texas, explored for gold in the Arctic, mapped geology in Eastern Turkey (where he was befriended by PKK rebels), and rehabilitated water wells in the wilds of Africa. He was in Ethiopia in 1991 as the Mengistu regime fell, and was bumped from one of the last flights out of Addis Ababa by bureaucrats and their families fleeing the rebels. In 1993 he survived a bomb blast in a cafe in Sana'a, and was one of the last Westerners out of Yemen before the outbreak of the 1994 civil war. Paul is a university professor and CEO of the Australian Institute of Marine Science (AIMS). The first three novels in his Claymore Straker series, The Abrupt Physics of Dying, The Evolution of Fear and Reconciliation for the Dead all received great critical acclaim and The Abrupt Physics of Dying was shortlisted for the CWA John Creasey (New Blood) Dagger. Paul is a sailor, a private pilot, keen outdoorsman, conservation volunteer, and lives in Western Australia. Follow him on Twitter @Hardisty_Paul

Customer Reviews

"The Evolution of Fear" opens at a cracking speed and follows a couple of months on from "The Abrupt Physics of Dying". Straight away you realise that this book will also have all the fantastic characteristics of its predecessor, super hard hitting action, fast pace, a strong lead character and an addictive solid storyline - always covering up to date political issues - to keep you turning the pages. Claymore Straker is a fugitive with a price on his head. Wanted by the CIA for acts of terrorism he did not commit, his best friend has just been murdered and Rania, the woman he loves, has disappeared. Betrayed by those closest to him, he must flee the sanctuary of his safe house in Cornwall and track her down. I love action hero Claymore Straker, he's such a unique but tough maverick character that you can't help engaging with. The exciting and very entertaining story is full of non stop thrilling action and I was totally engrossed from the very first page which was to be expected. I'd happily recommend this series and book to all action readers, male and female alike. It can also be easily read as a standalone too, as there's more than enough in the story to bring you fully up to speed with previous events. The Straker series are ready made for tv/film production and I do hope one day to see Claymore on the big screen. I now look forward to reading the next in the series "Reconciliation of the Dead" and the soon to be published "Absolution" which I know will be equally as entertaining, if not more! 5 stars
