Ivar Rivenaes was born in Norway and grew up during the WWII occupation 1940 – 1945. His two novels in Norwegian, The Man Who Walked Backwards (1968) and The Story of Richard Kahn (1973) got rave reviews and became bestsellers. Instead of pursuing a career as a writer he continued travelling during the decades before he settled in Hampshire in 1995.
Itâ€™s not often we at Lovereading travel into the territory of promoting a title that comes in unsolicited from a self-published author but this is one that really caught our eye. Rivenaes has real talent for dialogue and for gripping the reader throughout with a complex yet utterly riveting plot presented in effortless fashion. He's created some brilliantly drawn characters you will care about and some terrific interplay between them. It is a beautifully written, multi-faceted, multi-layered political action thriller, much like Tom Wolfeâ€™s Bonfire of the Vanities and written with a multitude of ingredients including drama, humour, love, action and suspense making it much more than a thriller. It's intriguing, fulfilling and ultimately consuming and will linger on in your psyche long after youâ€™ve finished it.
