Author of the Month

Author of such novels as A Conspiracy of Paper (winner of the Edgar Award for Best First Novel) and The Whiskey Rebels, David Liss continues his masterly run of "atmospheric" (The Washington Post), "page-turning" (The Baltimore Sun), "tremendously smart" (Newsweek) historical thrillers.

In his new novel, The Day of Atonement, Liss blends meticulous period detail with crackling adventure in the tale of one man's quest for justice -- and retribution. Sebastião Raposa is only thirteen when his parents are unjustly imprisoned, never to be seen again, and he is forced to flee Portugal lest he too fall victim to the Inquisition. But ten years in exile only serve to whet his appetite for vengeance. Returning at last to Lisbon in the guise of English businessman, Sebastian Foxx, he is no longer a frightened boy but a dangerous man tormented by violent impulses.

Compelled to play a game of deception and greed, Sebastian Foxx will find himself befriended, betrayed, tempted by desire, and tormented by personal turmoil. And when a twist of fate turns his carefully laid plans to chaos, he will be forced to choose between surrendering to bloodlust or serving the cause of mercy.
