  • 27 May 2016: Peter Kirby'Open Season has just won the Arthur Ellis award for best novel. Congratulations Peter!

    Here's what the Arthur Ellis jury has to say about Open Season:

    "This is a police procedural, gritty and noirish, with an extra spark that compelled each of us to read it almost all in one go, from the stunning opening scenes to a thrilling and satisfying conclusion. Vanier himself has great depth – he is sharp, believable and human, with a willingness to bend the law to exact vengeance, but he remains a moral centre in a troubled world.

    Open Season is the third of Peter Kirby’s Luc Vanier novels. You don’t need to read the previous books to enjoy this one – but you will want to."

    The full jury citation is here.
