Praise

“Enthralling . . . [a] sly, rich and swift novel of vengeance and rough justice.”The Seattle Times
 
“One of the masters of the historical thriller, [David] Liss is back with yet another highly entertaining novel. . . . [The Day of Atonement] paints a vivid picture of the waning days of the Inquisition, and of the truly evil religious leaders who led it. One of Liss’s best books.”—Minneapolis Star Tribune

“Foxx is reminiscent of Lee Child’s Jack Reacher: a man with his own moral code who takes on multiple adversaries simultaneously. . . . Liss has the start of another solidly researched, action-packed historical series here.”Booklist (starred review)

“[An] action-packed novel.”The Wall Street Journal
 
“Snappy dialogue and convincing atmosphere . . . The plot moves swiftly to a shattering climax.”The Washington Post

“Another intriguing thriller set against historical events for Liss, who has a knack for period detail, breakneck plots and characters we want to root for.”San Antonio Express-News
 
“Fans of [David] Liss know well his mix of dark arts and historical detail.”—New York Daily News
 
“In his latest historical thriller, Liss portrays eighteenth-century Lisbon in vivid detail, leading up to the great earthquake of 1755. The history is well researched and furnishes an excellent portrait of Portugal under the ever-looming shadow of the Inquisition. A compelling story of obsession and revenge, the novel is also ultimately a tale of redemption. Liss fans and aficionados of intelligent, well-written historical fiction will be eager for this title.”Library Journal (starred review)
