One-Eyed Jacks

Doubleday Canada, 2001

Growing up in Windsor, I was well aware of Detroit’s crime fiction legend Elmore Leonard’s works and his reputation. After taking up an interest in crime fiction, and noir in particular, I began looking for comparables set in Toronto. I came across Brad Smith, and this tale set here in the 1950s. They style and the language are all there, as are the colourful characters.
