Lou Berney
November Road
Harper Fiction


Weaving together a love story and a chase thriller set against the backdrop of JFK’s assassination, Lou Berney’s sparse prose creates an atmosphere of jeopardy and terror interwoven with great tenderness and beauty. The period setting is skilfully realised, and the sense of dread laced through the story builds to an overwhelming conclusion.
