It's not unusual for John Cardinal to be hauled out of a warm bed on a cold night in Algonquin Bay to investigate a murder. And at first this dead body, sprawled in the parking lot of Motel 17, looks pretty run of the mill: the corpse has a big bootprint on his neck, and the likely suspect is his lover's outraged husband. But the lover has gone missing. And then Delorme, following a hunch, locates another missing woman, a senator's wife from Ottawa, frozen in the ruins of an abandoned hotel way back in the woods. Spookily, she was chained up and abandoned wearing a new winter parka and boots, with a thermos beside her--as if her murderer was giving her a whisper of a chance at survival.
Neither Delorme nor Cardinal can imagine where their investigation will lead: into a decades-old injustice committed in the high Arctic; into the swingers' world inhabited by an ex-rock star who owns a pub in Algonquin Bay as well as private members' clubs in Toronto and Ottawa; into the insecurity that afflicts Delorme the woman and the cop; and into the deep bond between Delorme and Cardinal, which is at real risk of coming undone.
Giles Blunt grew up in North Bay, Ontario. After spending over twenty years in New York City, he now lives in Toronto. Among other works, he is the author of the John Cardinal crime series, winning the British Crime Writers’ Macallan Silver Dagger for Forty Words for Sorrow, the debut novel in that series. The Delicate Storm won the Arthur Ellis Award for Best Novel and Blackfly Season was one of Margaret Cannon’s Best Mysteries of the Year. The fourth Cardinal, By the Time You Read This, became a national bestseller. His standalone crime novel, No Such Creature, was also picked as one of the Globe and Mail's Top Ten Crime Books.
In Until the Night, Giles Blunt outdoes himself, creating a masterpiece of crime fiction that will not only haunt his fans and readers, but delight and amaze them too.
