This is a gritty, stylishly written novel. The tale has a Boardwalk Empire feel, and the story itself, which finds Jack searching for a killer and accidentally finding out some things about himself, is . . . dramatic and occasionally moving. It’s the author’s first novel, but readers will hope it isn’t his last.
This is a writer to watch.
(Globe and Mail 2013-05-18)
Windsor may look and feel a bit more like HBO’s Boardwalk Empire after reading Riverside Drive, the latest release from Michael Januska. (The Drive Magazine 2013-06-01)
The book is well-written, it’s a great read and at fewer than 300 pages it can be finished in a relatively short time. . . [Januska] appears to be on his way to becoming a nationally recognized figure. (Windsor Life Magazine)
It’s powerful material for a novel, and Januska shows great strengths for plotting and dialogue.
Revealing the history of the Border Cities, as the story unravels, gives insight as to what it was like to live in Windsor during that time.
