Product Description

Review

"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

Format: Hardcover
William Deverell is determined to avoid being pigeon-holed as a 'mystery writer.' His writing is much more eloquent, his characters more fully developed. And yet his plots are as convoluted as the best in the mystery genre. This fifth novel in the Arthur Beauchamp series follows the uproariously comical "Snow Job" with a far darker novel. "I'll See You in My Dreams" delves into a case from Beauchamp's early career, a murder that has haunted him for almost five decades. I found the parts of the book set in and around Vancouver BC in the early 1960s to be wonderfully evocative of that time and place. Beauchamp is a complex, captivating and sometimes disturbing protagonist, and this book helps readers to understand why. Deverell's fans will be pleased with this latest, while newcomers are advised to read Trial of Passion, April Fool, Kill All the Judges, and Snow Job first, in order to fully appreciate this chapter in the Beauchamp saga.

Beauchamps' is a sharp, well-developed intellect that, thankfully, has very human appetites, weaknesses and vulnerabilities. His best quality is his self-deprecating self-awareness. I doubt anyone can read this book and not wish to be more like Beauchamps!

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.

Format: Paperback
Spoiler Alert! The only appealing portion of this book was oddly enough the last section called 'The Appeal' which was ruined by the fact that I needed to suspend all my common sense to believe the premise of the story. Is the reader seriously expected to believe that Mulligan is not instantly recognized by anyone he encounters when he is dressed up as Irene? Police? Lawyers? Anyone? He would have needed a Hollywood makeup team to pull that off.

What a dreadful waste of time.

Now onto the latest Rebus which I know I'll enjoy.

As an audiobook reader, I try and match every voice to every author character.
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!

William Deverell is a wonderful writer and great story teller.
This is a marvelous book and my only concern is the aging Arthur Beauchamp who may not survive too many more.
