While living in Toronto, Renko balanced Treasury bill accounts totaling billions, promoted fetish parties in nightclubs and practiced Zen meditation. After witnessing an abduction that led to murder, a rooming house fire that left 30 homeless, and a gruesome stabbing murder right before his eyes, Renko moved to Tofino, on the west coast of Vancouver Island, where he built a small cabin in a patch of old growth and began surfing and writing hard-boiled fiction. An injury in twenty-foot surf led him to the lower mainland, where he now lives. Char Broiled is his first novel.
