Editorial Reviews

Review

“Martine LeDuc, the publicity director for the city of Montreal and a wonderfully likable narrator, partners with offbeat police detective Julian Fletcher in this absorbing mystery. De Beauvoir does a fine job of evoking the ambiance of Montreal, with its fascinating neighborhoods, bilingualism, and political tensions.” ―Publishers Weekly

“Convincing and disturbing.” ―Toronto Star

“[The] plot has real forward-moving energy, making Asylum a quick and satisfying read. Martine LeDuc-a troubled Catholic, an uncomfortable stepmother, and committed to her job and city-makes for an engaging lead character, and I hope de Beauvoir writes her again.” ―National Post

“What is truly impressive about de Beauvoir's writing is that she is able to smoothly weave fiction with true events bringing the past to life with evocative settings and passionate characters whom we care deeply as they capture the memories of this dreadful dark era of Québec's past.” ―Bookpleasures
