From the Publisher

Includes the novels Dirty Sweet, Everybody Knows this is Nowhere, and Swap

Road rage or a premeditated killing? Dirty Sweet is a fast-paced crime story that follows each character to a surprising end.

In Everybody Knows this is Nowhere, detective Gord Bergeron has problems. Maybe it’s his new partner, Ojibwa native Detective Armstrong. Or maybe it’s the missing ten-year-old girl, or the unidentified torso dumped in an alley behind a motel, or what looks like corruption deep within the police force.

In Swap, Toronto's shadow city sprawls outwards, a grasping and vicious economy of drugs, guns, sex, and gold bullion. And that shadow city feels just like home for Get — a Detroit boy, project-raised, ex-army, Iraq and Afghanistan, only signed up for the business opportunities, plenty of them over there. Now he's back, and he's been sent up here by his family to sell guns to Toronto's fast-rising biker gangs.

If you listened to partisans on either side of Election 2016, it was a contest between—or a protest of—a criminally corrupt politician and a serial sex offender, even though neither candidate had been formally charged with, much less convicted of, such crimes. Elizabeth Warren recently eviscerated Wells Fargo CEO John Stumpf—a man once known for his own and his company’s core values—as a “gutless” leader, squeezing “employees to the breaking point so they would cheat customers and you could drive up the value of your own stock and put hundreds of millions in

Big in China: Murder Villages and Scam Towns

Many Chinese towns have grown fat off of single industries. Much of the world’s hosiery, for example, comes from the village of Datang, also known as “Sock City.” Songxia is dedicated to umbrellas. Jinjiang is all about zippers. And Shisun, for a time, made a killing off of killing. Last year, Chinese prosecutors indicted 40 of the village’s residents for arranging 17 murders. At least 35 more deaths are under investigation; dozens more victims may never be known. News of Shisun’s killing ring provoked dismay in Hunan province, but not shock; similar gangs have been caught in Hebei, Henan, and

Deadly Revenge

The murders were as baffling as they were brutal. Sometime after 3:30 on the afternoon of March 13, 2008, someone had entered the Omaha home of prominent Creighton University physician William Hunter and savagely stabbed to death his youngest son, Thomas, 11, along with the family’s housekeeper Shirlee Sherman, 57. “It was strange,” recalls Omaha police department homicide detective Derek Mois. “There was nothing gone from the house. It wasn’t ransacked. There didn’t appear to be a motive.” As time passed with no new evidence appearing, the case eventually went cold. Then five years later, on
