    1. Excellent bookExcellent story that keeps you from putting it down, I highly recommend this book to read if you enjoy a good mystery


    2. Full disclosure: This was a solicited review (free book in exchange for honest review).Animal Violence: a very small amountI was torn about this book. I like the author, I liked the characters, and the plot was clever and entertaining. It wasn't quite as well-edited as Harm's Way, the previous one I'd read by this author, but was still well-written enough that the story flowed.My main problem with the book was that there just too many characters and agencies to keep it all straight. I sometimes [...]


    3. I thoroughly enjoyed this fast paced crime novel, my guilty pleasure when I put down the multitude of spiritually oriented books generally piled up around my bedside. An occasional reference to Pema Chodron and a wise, edgy lead female character, allayed my guilt. Annand has a knack for realistic, quick, witty dialog, and since I grew up with a homicide cop father in a Canadian city, I can attest to the fact he has a true sense of how they talk --- that dark sense of humor that helps them get th [...]


    4. Al-Quebeca by Alan AnnaudReading eloquently described places I know well in Montreal, my city, added a cherry to the cake that it was being dropped back to a period called The Bikers’ War. In an atmospheric portrayal of the confrontation between the Hells Angels and the Rock Machine biker gangs on one side and the various levels of public security on the other, the author skillfully finds a way to sneak a seemingly insignificant event into a larger canvas.Though the biker wars are important a [...]


    5. Well, it wasn't the worst book I ever read. But it was probably #3 or #4 worst. This one was really a trudge to get through. Some of the worst development of characters ever too. An openly-gay alcoholic party goer who is fully welcome in an Al Qaeda terror cell by other members? And no explanation necessary regarding why this character joyfully looks forward to sacrificing his life for the Al Qaeda cause? Seriously? Among a million other problems throughout this book that completely defy the soc [...]


    6. A Television SeriesI felt like I was watching a new TV series. Alan Annand writes with the clarity of video. You can visualize each episode as clear as a watching a weekly tv series. Each ending when I had to lay it down for a time to engage in reality. Then come back to the next episode. Very exciting. Great story. Great actors. (But wait, this was writing) It was so engaging, I found myself thinking about the story when I was away from the book.


    7. This was a new author for me. The adventure in this story really held my attention so I wanted to know what was going to happen next. The story was believable and very true to today. When I have time I will read more books written by this author.


    8. Suspense as a sleeper cell plans a terrorist attack in Canada. Writing style is similar to Kathy Reich (Temperance Brennan series).


    9. I enjoyed it immensely. An exciting police procedural set in Quebec that was eerily similar to events happening around the world today.
