The Facility your first choice for quality books
'A dark thriller about our preoccupation with security' --Bookseller 'This much-hyped new author comes recommended by crime writer Donna Leon. An elegant crime thriller about a falsely imprisoned man and his estranged wife, intent on finding the truth. They collide with a journalist investigating a secret government facility hidden in the countryside. Topical and fast-paced' --Red Magazine'A startling vision of totalitarian Britain... Lelic creates a magnificent sense of place and deftly maintains the pace of his thriller plot... Lelic's crystalline prose is frequently utterly seductive and his compassion is deeply moving' --Metro'The basic premise of Simon Lelic's new book The Facility nails the reader's attention from the off... Apart from his storytelling skills Lelic has two potent weapons in his armoury, his dialogue which is scabrous and flint-edged and his characters... As well as being an unputdownable thriller The Facility is a book with something to say about the price any country and its citizens must pay for security. However Lelic never lectures us and when we reach a tense confrontation on a railway platform in the last chapter readers will be checking their increased pulse rate rather than their consciences' --Daily Express'A classic story of a race against time' --The Sunday Times'A home-grown, high concept thriller... set in a dystopian near-future, where the British government, seemingly through popular choice, has invoked unprecedented security powers... All in all, this is a deeply unsettling read' --Book of the Week, Daily Mirror'Simon Lelic's second novel, The Facility, is timely indeed... Lelic has written a thriller for our times, whose plot is driven by a political machine that's oiled and ready in the real world... The plot grips not because of action scenes (although there are a few) but because we live in a world where feelings of mild guilt often slip into paranoia. This is Kafka meets Orwell in contemporary England, where the cynical among us already believe that the "war on terror" could cause people to be "disappeared" as easily as in South America or the former Soviet Bloc' --Herald'Simon Lelic's second novel is grander in scale than his intimate and claustrophobic debut, Rupture, but his ability to create an atmosphere of tension and foreboding fits just as neatly into this frighteningly believable conspiracy thriller... Clever, well-paced and with a clear message, this is an ambitious and important novel with shades of George Orwell's 1984 at its core' --Liverpool Post The Facility is well crafted and though not as daringly written as Rupture (His debut novel) it's pacy and absorbing from the first page. Again the story is told from the perspective of various characters - a bumbling minister, a naive journalist, an unfairly imprisoned man - and weaves in parallel narratives, Again we have a dark and chilling exploration of authority and unjust persecution, with the background of a UK government taking matters into its own hands and deciding what's best for society. The use of the third rather than first person makes the unfolding drama less intimate and means the novel doesn't have the vernacular vim of Rupture. But Lelic has demonstrated once again his talent as a storyteller, keeping his prose fast-paced and always giving his characters distinct, believable voices. With The Facility he finds a niche as an author of solid, engrossing thrillers who could well turn out to be a serial bestseller.' --Time Out'A journalist gets involved when ordinary peopled are 'disappeared' and incarcerated in a secret government facility where they are subjected to medical experiments. Already-existing anti-terrorism legislation makes this story an unpleasantly plausible warning.' --Literary Review'Lelic has real talent and it will be interesting to see where he goes next.' --Guardian
