Thanks Sarah Weinman

The November issue of Quill and Quire features the terrific Louise Penny on the cover and inside has an article by Sarah Weinman, she of The Idiosyncratic Mind, listing ten rising Canadian mystery writers and I'm on the list. Here's what she said:

Why you should read him: McFetridge describes a Toronto of opportunists, seedy deals, and double-crosses not unlike Elmore Leonard's Detroit of James Ellroy's Los Angeles, but his books are distinctly rooted in his home city's rhythms and flavours. Start with:
Dirty Sweet (ECW Press, 2006), McFetridge's first novel, in which a murder becomes an opportunity for real estate agent Roxanne Carter to embroil herself in the doings of the Russian mafia -- and possibly come out ahead. Fun fact: McFetridge recently sold Dirty Sweet and the follow-up, Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere, to the U.S. publisher Harcourt -- which will publish the books next year with eye-popping retro 1970s covers.
