In the Evil Day: Violence Comes to One Small Town
Richard Adams CareyE-book: $9.99
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
