The Dead of Winter

Peter Kirby

July 2013

Inspector Luc Vanier is drinking his way through Christmas Eve when he is called out to investigage the murder of five homeless people. His investigation takes him into the backrooms of the Catholic Church, the boardrooms of Montreal’s business elite and the soup kitchens and back alleys of street life in winter.

The Dead of Winter is the first in Peter Kirby's acclaimed series of Luc Vanier crime novels. It was nominated both for an Unhanged Arthur and for the 2013 Arthur Ellis Best First Crime Novel award.


Peter Kirby practices international law with one of Canada’s largest law firms. He was born in Cork, Ireland, and grew up in Brixton, South London. He is recognized by The American Lawyer as one of Canada’s leading 500 lawyers and called a star in international arbitration by Benchmark Litigation. He lives in Montreal.

“Irishman Kirby joins John Brady and Peter Robinson in the ranks of the best English and Irish ex-pat crime novelists living in Canada.” – Nuacht

"One of the pleasures of Kirby’s novel is the setting. Thugs and lowlifes rub shoulders with the elite, while the city is pummelled by an endless succession of vicious snowstorms… Kirby puts Vanier through his paces chasing a killer in a book that's fast-paced and enjoyable." -- Maclean's
