About the Author

In 1999 Anthony Bidulka, BA, BEd, BComm, CPA left a decade long professional accounting career to pursue writing and never looked back. In 2003, Quill & Quire described Bidulka’s first book, Amuse Bouche: A Russell Quant Mystery, as “…an effervescent first novel that is much like the tasty French hors d’oeuvres from which it takes its name”, earning Bidulka a nomination for the Crime Writers of Canada Arthur Ellis Award. The Russell Quant series has been nominated for Crime Writers of Canada Arthur Ellis Awards, Saskatchewan Book Awards, a ReLit award, Lambda Literary Awards, with Flight of Aquavit awarded the Lambda Literary Award for Best Men’s Mystery, making Bidulka the first Canadian to win in that category. Bidulka wrote two books following the adventures of man of action Adam Saint, a tough-as-nails, luxury loving, Disaster Recovery Agent. In 2016 Bidulka published his first stand-alone suspense novel, Set Free with Kirkus Reviews saying: “The countless plot twists are exhilarating, with gasp-inducing drama and flatly startling story turns.” Anthony has toured extensively in both Canada and the United States. A great believer in community involvement, he has been on the boards of local, national and international organizations. He was recently inducted to his local university’s Wall of Honour and named his city’s Citizen of the Year. When he isn’t writing, Bidulka loves to travel the world, collect art, walk his dogs and throw a good party.

Review

"A writer, tormented over his daughter's kidnapping, becomes an abductee himself while traveling to Morocco in Bidulka's thriller. The countless plot twists are exhilarating, with gasp-inducing drama and flatly startling story turns. An intoxicating story that examines the elusive nature of truth." - Kirkus Reviews "A novel's opening lines can make all the difference between capturing attention and wanting to read further and setting the book aside. In the case of Set Free, a single line sets a gripping introductory scenario: "I would have packed less if I knew I was going to die." The protagonist is taken for a ride in more ways than one, and as a series of complex scenes evolve, the jet-setting American traveler quickly comes to find himself immersed in a plot that embraces his anonymity and the mystery of another culture. From kidnappers to romance and from an elusive truth to plans to gain freedom against all odds, Set Free makes intriguing twists and turns as it focuses on a struggle to stay alive. As the lives of Jasper, Jenn, Katie, and others entwine in a desperate struggle, readers are drawn into a story that is compellingly gripping and hard to put down. Events move from overseas to home as a father's mission, fueled by his daughter's ghost, changes everything. Recommended for any reader who wants heart-stopping moments and thought-provoking scenes from their thrillers, Set Free is ultimately a discussion of the costs of freedom and the threat of bondage." - D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review --This text refers to the paperback edition.
