Editorial Reviews

A fun read, this story offers up an enjoyable mystery, as well as capturing the rhythm of small town life, whether hunting in the bush, or finding creative ways to survive the brutal winter months. -Write On OttawaThe book offers plenty for the crime and mystery fans who like to follow police work and the solving of crimes. There's also a strong current of First Nations' spiritualism in the story. As well, the author captures the political tensions of a remote, one industry town, the politics behind a large government grant for the mill, and the uneasy relationship between First Nations and non-natives. -49th shelf - Alex Binkley. Kirk's Landing has everything that a story needs-three-dimensional characters, diverse cultures and customs, and enough twists and turns to keep your head spinning. Joyce Juzwik
