From the bestselling author of Everything I Never Told You, a riveting novel that traces the intertwined fates of the picture - perfect Richardson family and the enigmatic mother and daughter who upend their lives. See more
...a lean, tight thriller with a steely grip on the attention, and a plot as compulsive and propulsive as a Jason Bourne movie. We're talking murder-for-hire, guilt and recrimination, honour and patriotism, and dirty espionage, both domestic and international. (The Independent)
I loved this book. There are elements of politics, espionage, patriotism, nurture vs nature, Irish Troubles, shady dealings, friendship, dodgy clergy, people getting their comeuppance and a twisty plot. But if any of those definitions are not for you, don’t be put off because this is a rollicking good story with lots of surprises and really can’t be defined by any single theme. (The TBR Pile)
...it is brilliantly paced and told with all of Tempo’s hard-bitten, wry humour. (RTÉ.ie (Raidió Teilifís Éireann))
...it is writing of very high quality, beautifully observed and full of clear, cold cruelty... I will look forward to the return of this strangely attractive hero. (Crime Fiction Lover)
Thanks to Johnson’s eerie storytelling abilities, readers will cringe and wince –appropriately– without wanting to put the novel down. Because that’s Tempo’s mysterious pull: for every dark and seedy plot point, Johnson’s prose is elegant and swiftly moving, carrying the reader from one page to another... The story of Aloysius Tempo can hardly be contained. Once opened, Johnson’s Tempo races with speed to a crashing crescendo that will leave readers wanting more. (The Editor)
Aloysius Tempo is a gritty and gripping thriller and at just over 253 pages it’s a fast read. (IzzyReads)
