Review of The Finger's Twist by Lee Lamothe

What the Winnipeg Free Press has to say about The Finger's Twist:

[T]his Toronto journalist, in only his second swing at the fiction bat after 2003’s The Last Thief, has knocked one out of the Rogers Centre. In The Finger's Twist, he’s penned not only the best Canadian mystery/suspense release of the year, but a yarn light-years beyond anything the American stars have produced. . . .

Lamothe is a flash-nova in a mystery/suspense firmament of increasingly bloated egos and inferior made-for-TV product. And Winnipeg’s Turnstone has a gold-plated winner.

Margaret Cannon's take from the Globe and Mail

Toronto writer Lee Lamothe has constructed a wonderful noir thriller that owes a lot to Lee Child. Never thought Toronto had any mean streets? Lamothe's story begins with a riot at the legislature and never looks back.

Charlie Tate isn't a clone of Jack Reacher. Unlike Jack, Charlie has relationships, kids, community ties. But he's like Reacher in his commitment to truth and in Lamothe's cool precise language. The Finger's Twist should be a finalist for the Arthur Ellis Award this year.

The Calgary Herald's "unexpected delight"

The Finger's Twist by Canadian author Lee Lamothe was an unexpected delight, a dark journey through the roiling streets of a simmering Toronto as an off -the-books P.I. looks into the attempted bombing of the legislature, ably aided by his wheelchair-bound partner. Look for this one and when you find it, buy two: one as a gift and the other to keep for yourself.
