"Crimes Against My Brother takes us through a long series of petty betrayals, crushing heartbreaks, loneliness and death. . . . David Adams Richards has again proven his mastery." --National Post

     Harold, Evan and Ian are inseparable as boys--so much so that one night, abandoned in the forest by the careless adults around them, and raging against society and the uncaring gods others worship, they seal their undying brotherhood with a blood bond. But soon after, a horrific accident scars each of them in a different way, testing their bonds and leaving each with a debt to be paid. As adults, seeking to rise above debt and advance in life, each man decides upon a very different path--but over time, all three discover they are tied to each other in intricately tangled, sometimes violent, and surprising ways that none of them has been wise enough to foresee.
     In Crimes Against My Brother, literary legend David Adams Richards is at his finest, reprising some of his most complex and beloved characters (such as Sydney Henderson from Mercy Among the Children), introducing unforgettable new ones (such as the beautiful but fatally foolish Annette Brideau; and the wily, charming, money-hungry manipulator Lonnie Sullivan), and weaving a tale of such force, gravitas, complexity, universality, and compassionate understanding that he reaffirms his status as a master storyteller who has, book by book, used his rare genius to create an entire, teeming universe alongside a river in a small northern part of the world.
DAVID ADAMS RICHARDS is the author of numerous acclaimed and prize-winning novels, including Incidents in the Life of Markus Paul, which was published to rave reviews; The Lost Highway, which was nominated for the Governor General's Literary Award for Fiction and the Scotiabank Giller Prize in 2008; The Friends of Meager Fortune, which...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glad I read it I like the way David Adams Richards develops his characters slowly over the course of a novel and how the plot fits together like a puzzle where the whole picture is only seen when the last piece is out I place. I especially like how he brings in characters from his other novels and add to their characterization. I would recommend this book to everyone who likes a good story that focuses on plot rather than action

Editorial Reviews

"Tragedy and cruelty are rife in the fictional universe of David Adams Richards, one of Canada's most prolific and gifted writers. . . . Richards' true interest is not in the terrible things we all do, but rather the ways in which we struggle to live with the consequences. . . . Crimes Against My Brother is grandly ambitious and beautifully written. . .an astute, compelling and compassionate exploration of the human spirit." --Toronto Star
