The sequel to Fall from Grace, “a genre-bender, its twists all the more startling for being unexpected” —Booklist
Leo Desroches, a half-Cree, half–French-Canadian reporter in Edmonton, returns in A Killing Winter, the sequel to Wayne Arthurson’s lauded debut murder mystery Fall from Grace. Undercover as a homeless man, Leo’s got his hands full both on the job and in his personal life. As he tries to reconnect with his estranged son and fight his urge to gamble, he is consumed by a story that turns into a personal crusade: a search for a missing Native street kid he’s befriended. When the boy is found brutally murdered, Leo explores the depths of Native street culture in a local gang. As Leo delves deeper into the gang, secrets emerge that threaten not only their members, but Leo’s life…and his sanity.
