"This book should be read by everyone who gives a damn about Canada and the publicly owned broadcaster that unites us in telling our own stories on radio and television. Wade Rowland convincingly documents the slow, politically directed erosion of the CBC and he has the expertise to show us how to save, and expand, this vital component in Canadian life. Will we listen to him? I hope to God we have enough sense to do so." -- Farley Mowat
“Consider this an impassioned polemic -- 'debate’ is far too sedate – ignited by the CBC's degradation in recent years and fed by cold rage against the main culprits, yet with a surprising optimism about future possibilities.” -- Rick Salutin, author and Toronto Star columnist

"A powerful ride through the dark and raw of Montreal. Temperance Brennan would feel right at home." -- Kathy Reichs, author of the Temperance Brennan and Tory Brennan series.
"One of the new additions to the fine stable of crime writers in this country." -- The Sunday Edition, CBC Radio
"Saints, villains, the homeless and the powerful are held in winter’s suspenseful grip, as are readers as Luc Vanier struggles to unravel who is killing whom and why before the murder count climbs higher. In a riveting new series, Peter Kirby reveals Montreal at the worst of times, its underbelly exposed and dire forces at play." -- John Farrow, author of City of Ice and River City
"Taut. Claustrophobic. Compelling. A chilling tale -- in every sense of the word. Peter Kirby's story of murder and its machinations tightens around the reader like a noose." -- Will Ferguson, author of 419.
