 CWA Ian Fleming Steel Dagger Finalist 2010.

This first class thriller with its worryingly feasible storyline is gripping stuff. Published in 2009 the novel was set shortly after the 2012 Olympics and predicted a near future where civil liberties had been eroded; a surveillance state of ‘totalitarian technology’ where the British government colludes with big business to spy on its subjects.  


Just three years on from publication, Henry Porter’s ‘prophecies’ in The Dying Light have now come to pass with terrifying accuracy.

As well as being “one of the masters of the genre” (DAILY TELEGRAPH) Henry is a writer and journalist specialising in liberty and civil rights, and has been contributing to the GUARDIAN coverage of the NSA and GCHQ surveillance revelations of 2013.  Click here to see his "Opinion Pieces" in the Guardian.


Comparison: Gerald Seymour, Robert Wilson, Alan Furst.


CWA Judges’ comments: 'Alarming political thriller with a powerful message: our freedom and personal integrity are at risk.'
