For the Right Reasons
Like Edward Evans’ previous book, II PY, For the Right Reasons is fast-paced and action-packed. Set mainly in East Berlin just a couple of years before the fall of the Berlin Wall, the novel tells the story of down-to-earth Yorkshire businessman Robert Conway who accidentally becomes involved in an assassination attempt on the East German President’s life. His heroic efforts to rescue the President win him special freedoms in the East and during his travels he stumbles across secret plans for a terrifying act of sabotage against the West.
Despite his best efforts, Conway finds himself – and, worse, his family – dragged deeper and deeper into the murky world of espionage, as both MI6 and the Stasi endeavour to exploit his unusual position. Soon he no longer knows who is friend or who is foe, and realizes that he will have to rely on his own wits if he is to rescue his family from what fast becomes a deadly game.
