Description

Worlds collide when a naïve young heiress takes a tumble for a bootlegger with a murderous temper and his business partner falls in love with Montreal, the way Americans are prone to do. One world war has ended and a second is in the wings. In the space between, the neon-powered city on the St. Lawrence is notorious for its lavish nightlife, obsessive gambling and evident corruption. Controlling the action from behind the scenes is a large and mysterious figure called the Carpenter. He is the city's fixer, mediator and manipulator. He is the boss of the night, le caïd de la nuit. In this cinematic and genre-bending novel, George Fetherling both honours the roots of serious noir fiction while also pushing its boundaries.

Editorial Review

The File on Arthur Moss is a work of "incisive, complex beauty [by] a gifted phrasemaker [and] a fascinating meditation on the elusiveness of truth." Maclean'sJericho may be Canada's first truly twenty-first-century novel. As a work of urban fiction--a slim category in Canadian writing--it stands among the very best." The New BrunswickTelegraph-JournalWalt Whitman's Secret is "a resonant, shimmering work that stakes a claim on posterity." The Globe and Mail
