"A classic . . . . Deverell, one of the finest of Canada's writers, builds his best book ever. . . . There is a great courtroom drama here, something that Deverell excels at, and an even better denouement with a twist nobody will guess. . . . . Superb." -- Margaret Cannon, Globe and Mail
"As with many of the great protagonists readers are drawn to in the mystery genre, it is Beauchamp's flaws, and he has many, that make him so interesting." -- Victoria TimesColonist
"Deverell's undertone of fury thrums most audibly [concerning] the multi-generational tragedies of Canada's residential schools [but] there's still laughter, though, in Arthur's personal mishaps -- his blunderings in his encounters with women, his rueful observations of himself as an often hapless old man, [plus] delicious nuggets of political gossip." -- Joan Barfoot, Toronto Sun

As for the plot - it moves to a highly unexpected conclusion with all loose ends carefully tied up - very satisfying!
But more than a mystery, the book exposes the tragedy of First Nations in Canada and how power, once again, so easily corrupts. The insider view of our legal system, with all it's strengths and weaknesses, is fascinating. But this is all kept in fine balance by the hilarious description of Beauchamp's complicated life on and off the small fictional gulf island.
What a dreadful waste of time.
Now onto the latest Rebus which I know I'll enjoy.
This is the first audiobook of 7 that I have done 'ALL' the voices - including kids and girls/women. I felt I have to compete with Simon Vance and Scott Brick. Mr. Deverell writes a character-rich colorful tale of life that has so many real references that it's hard to call it fiction. This is a good novel! I hope my rendition will help us compete with Mr. Grisham, and other literary giants!
This is a marvelous book and my only concern is the aging Arthur Beauchamp who may not survive too many more.
