From the Publisher
It''s not unusual for John Cardinal to be hauled out of a warm
bed on a cold night in Algonquin Bay to investigate a murder. And
at first this dead body, sprawled in the parking lot of Motel 17,
looks pretty run of the mill: the corpse has a big bootprint on his
neck, and the likely suspect is his lover''s outraged husband. But
the lover has gone missing. And then Delorme, following a hunch,
locates another missing woman, a senator''s wife from Ottawa,
frozen in the ruins of an abandoned hotel way back in the woods.
Spookily, she was chained up and abandoned wearing a new winter
parka and boots, with a thermos beside her--as if her murderer was
giving her a whisper of a chance at survival.
Neither Delorme nor Cardinal can imagine where their investigation
will lead: into a decades-old injustice committed in the high
Arctic; into the swingers'' world inhabited by an ex-rock star who
owns a pub in Algonquin Bay as well as private members'' clubs in
Toronto and Ottawa; into the insecurity that afflicts Delorme the
woman and the cop; and into the deep bond between Delorme and
Cardinal, which is at real risk of coming undone.
In Until the Night, Giles Blunt outdoes himself, creating
a masterpiece of crime fiction that will not only haunt his fans
and readers, but delight and amaze them too.
