Through my past four books, Ive been living with a character named John Cardinal, a police detective from northern Ontario who has had to track down some hideously evil people, but who has also endeared himself to me and to many readers through the deep attachment he has had to his troubled wife, Catherine. I believe the new Cardinal novel, By The Time You Read This, is the most emotionally involving yet. Catherine dies in chapter one, and Cardinals grief pervades the rest of the book as he tries to make sense of her death. This was painful to write at times, and I can only hope you will be moved by it.
Another reason Im particularly excited is that, this time out, Cardinal encounters a murderer and a method of killing that neither he nor I have ever seen before. Im pretty sure even hardcore crime-novel addicts will find it unique, believable, and completely horrifying. I want to tell you all about it but I cant without spoiling the story. I know, I know, one can only be skeptical of an author who pronounces himself pleased with his book but when pressed as to why promptly takes a vow of silence.
But what can I do? Ill just have to clam up and hope you enjoy the story.
