»We make so much of serious literary fiction in this country, offering lavish prizes at the end of each year for novels that add gravitas and definition to Canada’s presence in world literature, that it’s something of a surprise to learn that we’ve also managed to accumulate a disproportionately large number of writers who are proving themselves world champions in the competitive populist genre of crime and mystery fiction.«

Greg Quill

Louise Penny, Giles Blunt, Peter Robinson and many more – Canada’s crime novelists making a killing, Greg Quill says. His view at The Star.


»In Watching the Dark I started with St. Peter’s, the convalescent home for injured policemen, and I had originally intended to set much of the book there; but, as usual, other ideas forced their way in.«
