Review by Bobbi Zahra

If Sheila Kindellan-Sheehan is new to you, as she was to me, take a moment to consider why her work would make a good addition to your bookshelf. Kindellan-Sheehan has written eight novels, the most recent of which were published by Montréal’s Véhicule Press.

People who enjoy a well-written, cleverly-plotted mystery will appreciate this tale about the discovery of a dead university student in Montréal’s 1930s-era Wellington Tunnel, now long abandoned and in reality inaccessible to even the most intrepid urban adventurer.

Kindellan-Sheehan creates believable characters, some of whom you will like – and others who you certainly will not. Even her most infuriating, unlikable characters, though, will keep you reading. The picture she offers of a seemingly intact family whose lives are in truth unravelling in a way that seems unstoppable could well inspire readers to avoid everything else until they read the last word on the last page.

The pacing of the story is excellent, tautly plotted and vibrating with many kinds of tension. If you know Montréal, you will recognise it here- and if you do not, perhaps the book will incline you to a visit. Either way, time immersed in this novel is time well-spent.
