Praise for Fall from Grace:"[A] clever debut. A good story with an engaging central character, the beginning of a promising series." (The Globe and Mail (Toronto))
"Wise and compassionate, vivid and witty, Leo is the kind of character you feel you've known a long time. What a great read. I couldn't put it down."
"It's about time someone set a kick-ass crime novel in Edmonton, and Wayne Arthurson is the man to do it." (Giles Blunt, bestselling author of the late John Cardinal mysteries)
"A very satisfying debut. Think Nancy Pickard for region and atmosphere, Brad Parks for journalism, and Timothy Hallinan for social concerns and attitude. Highly recommended."
"Works splendidly as both a mystery and a character study. It looks like Arthurson has future Desroches novels planned. They've just been added to my 'must-read' list."
