about

A once regional, blue-collar town, Peacefield has surrendered its soul to the illusion of affluence. But for some, ideological differences still simmer, and losing streaks have become expected. Tension and division are a way of life. Then, one night, the otherwise bucolic town explodes with gunfire. Hostages are taken and the local police department, hampered by budget cuts, is caught flat-footed. Constables Grant Ambler and Arnold Strauss are both new to the department, and stuck in the orbit of their troubled personal lives as they walk, unaware, into the ensuing mayhem. In a single evening, Peacefield is transformed from a quaint tourist trap into a violent and unpredictable nightmare, where lives are shattered, faith is renewed, and long-concealed mysteries are solved.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Suspenseful and Unique! This book is much different than Philip David Alexander's first novel, North of Here, which I also loved. Peacefield examines a violent crime that tears apart three families in a once safe, small town. The characters are all convincing and compelling and the alternating viewpoints work well! The General, the criminal at the centre of the story, is real, complex and even likeable despite his horrible crime. Full of imagery, suspense and occasional humour, this is a perfect book for an chilly autumn evening

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unique and Gritty This is a deceiving story in the best possible way. A gunman takes hostages in the small tourist town of Peacefield. The event unfolds as expected: innocent people are captured and held; shots ring out and frighten the town. And then two rookie cops arrive, unaware of the extent of the violence taking place...and the story takes two very creative and thought-provoking turns! Not your usual suspense - thriller. I read this on a 4 hour flight to Vancouver that seemed to only take a couple of hours. The sign of a good, page-turning book!
