Reviewed in the United States on May 7, 2015
Meter of Corruption is an engrossing, sensational novel that kept me engaged from the first page. From the opening threats of extortion in Mabel and Joseph Murtens’ East Toronto apartment to the totally unexpected twist ending on Plum Island, the action in this fast-paced thriller never subsides. The title is perfect, the writing is vivid and the fascinating plot flows without a hitch. Schimanski has mastered the art of pacing. Using short chapters with interesting arcs and fast-moving events, he keeps the reader thoroughly engaged. Pertinent hooks, short bursts of action, edgy humor and just the right amount of titillation propel the reader effortlessly from page to page, making one hungry for more. I relished the cleverness of Schimanski’s use of words and his lean, flowing writing style. John Freisinger once claimed that effective communication does not happen until you master the following technique…“Be brief, be brilliant, be gone!” In my estimation, Meter of Corruption has mastered that technique. Strap yourself in for one wild ride as you fly through Lakeshore, Toronto’s West end to the East end, Stoltenhoff Island, the freezing terrain of Russia and back to a Tim Horton’s just in time for a sausage sandwich and a double-double coffee while trying to keep up with this incredible tome. Meter of Corruption is as action-packed as they get and a ride you won’t soon forget. I highly recommend it.
