Carey’s tension-filled report of a small town’s terror is portrayed with surprising love, bittersweetness, and hope, resulting in a beautifully written and enthralling true-crime tale.
--Booklist (starred review)
Carey writes with empathy and insight about how the town endured the shootings, and how it rebounded.
Thanks to fine writing, great story-telling and incredible research, the lives and spirits of the victims and all those wounded and traumatized are fully rendered. It’s a book well worth your time.
--New Hampshire Magazine
Riveting and absolutely heartbreaking. . . . [Carey] does a masterful job of describing the bucolic but rugged setting of New Hampshire’s own "wild frontier" and the people and personalities attracted to it.
--New Hampshire Union Leader
In the Evil Day is as much the story of a town, its culture, its way of life, its history, but especially its people, as it is an in-depth cautionary tale of the tragic consequences of nursing a grudge. It's the most authentic, gripping, true-to-life modern-day murder documentary I've ever read.
--Ernest Hebert, author of The Darby Chronicles
