Fraser Nixon Reads from The Man Who Killed

Fraser Nixon Reads from The Man Who Killed

May 2011

The time: Prohibition. The place: a gritty, rye-soaked, bootlegging Montreal. Our anti-hero Mick spies his best friend (and his ultimate downfall) Jack near the docks doing a deal. Jack recognizes Mick's need for a square meal and a stiff drink.

The Man Who Killed is a tale of political corruption and crime, of sexual jealousy and heartbreak, a portrait of a city after last call, of smoke-filled saloons and gunfire in the night. Shot through with dark humour and strange pathos, this is a novel of two friends who do bad things mostly for money, sometimes for fun, and the women they love.
