Editorial Reviews

“King masterfully uses a slick third-person narrative throughout his novel, shifting from character to character at exactly the right moment, giving readers the best seat in the house.”Montreal Review of Books

On A Stab at Life, the first novel in the series. “ King, a lively writer with fine storytelling skills? Readers who know Montreal will recognize neighbourhoods, streets and landmarks in A Stab at Life. Indeed, the city is as much a character as the nurse and the detective. ” Susan Schwartz, The Montreal Gazette.

“ [King] excels in weaving in working-class immigrant life in Côtes-des-Neiges into his intricate plot of crime and passion. ” The Ottawa Review of Books
