August 08th, 2023

Already a critically acclaimed author of ten books, Dietrich Kalteis is back on the scene with The Get: A Crime Novel (ECW Press, $26.95). Since his first novel was released in 2014, Kalteis has established himself as an authority on crime fiction, winning the Crime Writers of Canada Award for Best Crime Novel in 2022. In his new title, Kalteis pens a graphic description of Toronto in the 1960s where the protagonist, Lenny Ovitz, wrangles with unsavoury characters, a fierce crime boss and his own wife. Kalteis’ quick pacing and cutting dialogue transport the reader into the heart of the crime world. 9781770416840
