Kort biografi
I grew up in North Bay, Ontario, a child of parents so English that the space on their passports for citizenship could only be filled in: British Beyond Belief. They had colorful accents and amusing habits and never allowed themselves to be influenced by Canadians. Consequently I lived in England at home and Canada at school.

Things were further confused by my growing up Catholic. British people aren't supposed to be Catholic, but I attended a Catholic boys' school called Scollard Hall where I was subject to the usual bullying and injustice. I wouldn't have missed it for the world. Eventually, I negotiated a deal with my parents that got me into a regular school for grades twelve and thirteen. Algonquin Composite had actual girls in it and consequently my attendance improved.

The result of this peculiar background was that I never felt truly Canadian; I always felt like a visitor. Then, in 1980, I moved to New York City where I lived for the next 22 years. Americans treat Canadians in their midst with a sort of amused condescension that's quite touching. You know: "They come down here, they take our women..."

Living in New York gave me enough distance from northern Ontario to see it through a very long lens. I now visit North Bay and it seems exotic. It is exotic. It's ridiculous that anybody should live there, really, in the land of ice and snow. I mean, what kind of person comes to a hunk of rock surrounded by ice and pine trees and figures it's a good bet to settle down there? Okay, fur traders. But as soon as they have enough money fur traders head for Florida just like everyone else.

Recensioner

Bästa boken i serien då handlingen verkligen ligger nära huvudkaraktären. Bra driv och storyn känns trovärdig.

Bra och spännande. Bra sidointrig som gör att man vill fortsätta läsa bok nummer fyra.

Gillar verkligen karaktärerna och miljöerna. Tyvärr är storyn ganska så svag i denna boken men jag kommer garanterat att fortsätta läsa serien.

Efter en lite trevande inledning så sätter sig berättelsen efter ett par hundra sidor. Karaktärerna blir levande och historien intressant. Blir riktigt spännande mot slutet. En mycket stark trea. Kommer att fortsättas läsa serien.
