The Last Day by Andrew Hunter Murray

A WORLD HALF IN DARKNESS. A SECRET SHE MUST BRING TO LIGHT.

2059. The world has stopped turning.
One half suffers an endless frozen night; the other, nothing but burning sun.
Only in a slim twilit region between them can life survive.
In an isolationist Britain, scientist Ellen Hopper receives a letter from a dying man.
It contains a powerful and dangerous secret.
One that those in power will kill to conceal…

The Last Day: an utterly original debut thriller, perfect for readers who loved Robert Harris’ Fatherland, Emily St. John Mandel’s Station 11, and The Wall by John Lanchester.

Peer & Press Reviews

In his fascinating debut, Murray has crafted something original… an interesting new twist on a post-apocalyptic tale.

Kirkus

I loved the premise of this high-concept thriller… a compelling read with some well-placed observations on the darkness of human nature and survival.  The Last Day will keep you gripped to the very last page.

C.J. Tudor, author of The Other People

[A]n atmosphere reminiscent of PD James’s dystopian classic The Children of Men and alternative history thrillers such as Len Deighton’s SS-GB.  As with those novels, The Last Day investigates the “boiled frog” nature of totalitarianism, with Hunter Murray imagining what Britain succumbing to it would look and feel like.  The result is a beautifully realised and thought provoking-thriller.
