The novel follows world-weary Detective Inspector Luc Vanier as he hunts down a disturbed killer of homeless people. Vanier confronts his own demons while his investigation draws him into the heart of the Catholic Church in Quebec, the boardrooms of Montreal’s business elite, and the back-alleys and soup kitchens of the dispossessed. With a cast of fascinating characters, this is a Montreal that will cast its icy shadow over your shoulder for a long time to come. Step into the world of Inspector Luc Vanier – it is a world you will want to come back to more than once.

Read an Excerpt
The alley was dark and only half as wide again as the car. It stank from food scraps leaking from a garbage bag with its belly split open, a feast for rats and raccoons. Someone had written POLICE=CHIENS on the wall, others had dropped cheap bouquets beneath the sign, the flowers already faded and dry. It was easy to see where the kid had fallen; a long dark stain traced a rivulet from the spot where blood spilled from his head, to where it pooled in the middle of the alley.
