In this sequel to City of Sinners, D.C. lannuzzi confirms his shameless devotion to the film noir genre, weaving a tale of corrosive greed, blind ambition and ruthless retribution. Julie Vadnais, an attractive and determined young reporter, confronts the murky realms of municipal politics and organized crime in her crusade to uncover the truth. Montreal Police Detective Johnny Emory once again leads the police investigation, hurtling down a collision course with the illicit world he grew up in.


D.C. Iannuzzi is a Montreal writer and an incorrigible news and history junkie. He burst onto the literary scene in 2008 with his first novel, City of Sinners, a tale of home-grown terrorism that turned Quebec's language debate on its head. lannuzzi is a graduate of Concordia University and, when not contemplating the darkness that lurks in men's souls, he earns his living as an investment advisor and portfolio manager. He lives in the former Ville d’Anjou on the island of Montreal with his wife and two daughters.
