Night Action

(1989)
A novel by

 
December 1941.

A man of vital importance to the war effort has been captured

He is being transported along the French coast by the enemy.

He must be returned to England "at all costs".

Haunted by past failures, Lieutenant David Brent must embark on yet another dangerous journey across the Channel to ensure that this mission is a success.

But when all does not go to plan, Brent is pushed, once again, to his limit.

He must think quickly and logically, and direct his team to safety if possible...and to the ultimate sacrifice if necessary.

But haunted by reminders of his past can Brent remain rational and concentrate on the mission at hand?

Or will the German troops out-manoeuvre him once more?

Night Action is a high-octane read from a master of military thrillers.

Praise for Alan Evans:



"Fast moving, action-packed... The savage ruthlessness of the Nazis and of war itself are sombrely painted" - Lloyd's List

"Action indeed is the keynote. Gunfire crackles constantly both on land and sea in a literally explosive adventure" - Yorkshire Evening Post

"For readers who delight in war-time stories... plenty of action" - Navy News

Alan Evans is a highly talented thriller writer who vividly and evocatively re-creates the atmosphere of the First and Second World Wars. He is also the author of three children's books.
