Editorial Review

"Taut. Claustrophobic. Compelling.” – Will Ferguson“Powerful. Dark. Raw.” – Kathy Reichs“Riveting.” – John Farrow “Gripping. Compelling.” – Montreal Gazette“Grim. Convincing. Believable.” – Montreal Review of Books “Irishman Kirby joins John Brady and Peter Robinson in the ranks of the best English and Irish ex-pat crime novelists living in Canada.” – Nuacht "One of the pleasures of Kirby’s novel is the setting. Thugs and lowlifes rub shoulders with the elite, while the city is pummelled by an endless succession of vicious snowstorms…Kirby puts Vanier through his paces chasing a killer in a book that's fast-paced and enjoyable." -- Maclean's“Inspector Luc Vanier of the Montreal PD seems a character likely to join the ranks of Canada’s enduring sleuth figures.”- The Toronto Star"An auspicious debut from a writer to watch" - The Globe and Mail
