The Finger's Twist is more than just a gripping action thriller with an extreme tough-guy hero. It's a story of unlikely lovers defying emotional and physical odds, and a clash of differing social castes, prejudices, and political worlds.
The Fingerâ€™s Twist "is a first-rate crime novel that makes you question who the bad guys really are. And it introduces a pair of memorable characters I want to read about again."
- Uptown Magazine
"Genre-busting in the extreme, The Finger's Twist is a love story, a character study, a wheel-within-wheels whodunit, a social commentary, a political treatise...but, beyond that, itâ€™s bang-up storytelling....No higher praise possible, except maybe this: Once finished, you may be tempted to read it again. Indulge."
- The Winnipeg Free Press
"Toronto writer Lee Lamothe has constructed a wonderful noir thriller...Beautifully written."
- The Globe and Mail
"This is a quirky little thriller, with plenty of action, a clipped pace and a proper maelstrom of "whodunnit" cloak-and-dagger storytelling. The dialogue is excellent, filled with rogues' cant and street slang that makes you scramble to keep up."
- The Uniter
