12 May 1940. Westminster, London, England: the early days of World War II.

Again.

Raybould Marsh, one of "our" Britain's best spies, has travelled to another Earth in a desperate attempt to save at least one timeline from the Cthulhu-like monsters who have been observing our species from space and have already destroyed Marsh's timeline. In order to accomplish this, he must remove all traces of the supermen that were created by the Nazi war machine and caused the specters from outer space to notice our planet in the first place.

His biggest challenge is the mad seer Gretel, one of the most powerful of the Nazi creations, who has sent a version of herself to this timeline to thwart Marsh. Why would she stand in his way? Because she has seen that in all the timelines she dies and she is determined to stop that from happening, even if it means destroying most of humanity in the process. And Marsh is the only man who can stop her.

"Necessary Evil "is the stunning conclusion to Ian Tregillis's Milkweed alternate history series.

Notă biografică

Ian Tregillis is the son of a bearded mountebank and a discredited tarot card reader. He was born and raised in Minnesota, where his parents had landed after fleeing the wrath of a Flemish prince. (The full story, he's told, involves a Dutch tramp steamer and a stolen horse.) Nowadays he lives in New Mexico, where he consorts with writers, scientists and other unsavoury types.

Recenzii

Ian Tregillis triumphantly concludes his astonishing, brilliant, pulse-pounding debut trilogy ... a book that veers precipitously from unexpected and chilling ruminations on the inherent evil of precognition; to the questions of loyalty and betrayal so thorny that they need a time-travel loop to really be explored; to spy-thriller action sequences that will keep you up under the covers with a flashlight, turning pages and unable to sleep. This is a remarkable set of books, and with all three in hand, would make a fabulous spring read -- Cory Doctorow BOING BOING Darkly fascinating ... A thoroughly satisfying conclusion to an imaginative tour de force KIRKUS REVIEWS Tregillis' conclusion of the Milkweed Triptych is the piece de resistance of the series. Necessary Evil is a perfect marriage of science fiction, fantasy and alternate history. His narrative flows seamlessly, and his plot is fantastically convincing. Tregillis' characters astound, the villains as well as the heroes, especially honorable, tormented yet heroic Raybould RT BOOK REVIEWS
