Kind words from Jack Batten!


I’ve arrived! Jack Batten, the Toronto Star‘s renowned crime fiction reviewer, takes on Safe Harbor today. Here’s what he says:

Jack Batten

Somebody’s trying to kill a 7-year-old Toronto kid named Tommy. His mother has already been murdered, and the person summoned to Tommy’s defence happens to be Pat. She’s a 40ish widow with two university-age daughters, a good job as a financial planner, and a house in Moore Park. To protect Tommy, Pat finds herself dealing with a Fine Old Ontario Family and with some guys who act a lot like Middle Eastern terrorists. She isn’t sure which group is more daunting.

McCracken’s first novel offers a coherent structure, an exact feel for the Toronto locales, and, in Pat, a hugely attractive sleuth figure.

Wow! Jack’s words have made my year!
