A Criminal to Remember to Launch at Unforgettable Evening


Van Rooy's third episode in the Monty Haaviko thriller series finds Monty entangled in politics, while facing a psychopathic killer who threatens his beloved wife, Claire.

A Criminal to Rememberdelivers more of the humour and dark wit found in An Ordinary Decent Criminal and Your Friendly Neighbourhood Criminal, both of which are being published in the US by St. Martin's Press."A terrific story, engrossing and inventive," said Terry Griggs, author of Thought You Were Dead (Biblioasis). "Van Rooy has upped the 'anti' in his hero and given us a character who is irresistible--endlessly resourceful, morally complex, and very funny."

Michael Van Rooy writes for documentaries, magazines, newspapers, and the Internet. Michael won the 2006 Eileen McTavish Sykes Award for Best First Book, and the 2009 John Hirsh Award for Most Promising Manitoba Writer. Born in Kamloops, BC, he grew up in Winnipeg, where he now lives with his wife and three children.

Lamothe's thriller introduces private investigative team Charlie Tate and Elodie Gray, an unlikely combination of blue-collar and blue-blood trying to preserve justice and their relationship.

Lee Lamothe is a journalist and novelist whose works include bestsellers Bloodlines: The Rise and Fall of the Mafia's Royal Family, The Sixth Family: The Collapse of the New York Mafia and the Rise of Vito Rizzuto, and The Last Thief, a novel.
