“A fast-moving swinging story of intrigue, suspense, action, and mayhem . . . [the] characters are all colorful rogues.” — Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
From the Arthur Ellis Award and Dashiell Hammett Prize winner
In rugged, remote Newfoundland, a merry band of smugglers is carrying on a grand tradition, handed down over centuries. But the greatest of them all, a man named Peter Kerrivan, is now in the sights of the authorities, from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police to the American DEA.
Centered around a multimillion-dollar cargo of pot on a creaky freighter and offering a high-seas romp spanning from Colombia to Miami to the North Atlantic, High Crimes is a gripping novel with a thrilling triple-twist conclusion.
