Product Description

Product Description

Star crime reporter Alex Dunn is having a rough year. First, he witnesses a cold-blooded murder. Then his testimony puts ruthless biker kingpin Rufus Hodge behind bars for life - and he can't even write about it! But he doesn't have time to dwell on that, because Jason Crowe, Hodge's right-hand man, is quickly and systematically killing everyone involved in the trial. Or is he? As Alex goes into hiding in a remote mountain town, two of his colleagues take a closer look at the case and discover inconvenient facts that don't add up. Meanwhile, Crowe must use all his wits to keep his boss alive inside prison as everyone tries to figure out what exactly happened the night of the murder. They'll soon discover that keeping those secrets buried is worth more than any of their lives.

An enjoyable, fast-paced story full of twists and turns. The depth and variety of characters is this book's strength. Reminded me of both Sons of Anarchy (for the motorcycle club politics) and Orange is the New Black (for the prison politics). It's not, however, a book aimed solely at the hardcore crowd. Quite the contrary. In spite of its intense plot, the author weaves beautiful bits of whimsical Canadianna into the narrative. Anyone who has spent time in a small-town rink will relate to this: ". . . he thought of Kathy, sitting on the rink's old wooden benches that smelled vaguely of moisture and forgotten farts . . ." Well-crafted and well-written story. Definitely a thumbs-up.

HASH(0x9fe1fa50) out of 5 stars Great read for a first time author Dec 9 2014
By Justin VanDyk - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
For a first time author the book was very enjoyable with plot twists and interesting characters. There are twists that are surprising and, once known, all makes sense.

As the characters are developed in the first 1/3 of the book there are story lines that are slightly drawn out but they all come together nicely!

I look forward to future books from this author and encourage anyone who likes a different, interesting murder mystery novel to give it a try - I know you won't regret it.
HASH(0x9fdd58c4) out of 5 stars Gritty, raw and fast paced March 26 2015
By D'Arcy Kavanagh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Cook has put together an intricate plot with tough-talking characters and fast pacing. It's a gritty, raw, violent tale that is altogether realistic as it tells about a troubled reporter's involvement in a gangland world that threatens to swallow him and a lot of others. Based in the Calgary area, the book shows the author knows his stuff about journalism, the legal system and, maybe toughest of all, the world of modern gangsters. It is disturbing at times, but it has to be given the subject matter.
HASH(0xa0289e58) out of 5 stars Gritty, tense... Nov. 22 2014
By Jon Gregory - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This was a good read. It starts off with a shocker of a crime, then takes you through the ensuing events and investigation through several different points of view. At about the halfway point it really gets moving with an ending full of twists and an opening for a sequel. Only 4 stars because it slows a little about a third the way through, but it's worth staying with as the surprises and tension definitely pick up. Great first novel, would read more from Scott.
HASH(0xa0408e7c) out of 5 stars truth and life May 29 2015
By Zara Fellow - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Truth and Life are very vulnerable in this story. It was easy and at the same time very challenging to empathize Alex. He faced an overwhelming situation and that has been rough and tough.Cook has exquisitely woven the plot line making readers follow through and scrutinize mind power. Reading the book was like playing detective roles. It was even more challenging to weigh characters' motives and seeing the struggle of knowing, keeping and hiding the truth was even more thrilling.
HASH(0x9ff58c78) out of 5 stars Who is the victim ? Nov. 6 2014
By Mags - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Set in Calgary this story is about a verdict of murder presented by a judge. The writer introduces a great many characters who are killed off so hastily and violently that the reader has difficulty in identifying with any of them. Bikers, drugs, cops, attorneys and other characters come and go with such speed that I was unable to follow this novel.
