Never Forget

Overview

From the acclaimed “master of the Quebec thriller” comes an action-packed, breakneck mystery featuring Montreal police detectives Victor Lessard and Jacinthe Taillon, who race to track down a ruthless killer.

When a homeless man jumps to his death in Old Montreal, the police discover two wallets in his possession: one belonging to a retired psychiatrist who was recently murdered in a bizarre ritual, the other to a powerful corporate lawyer who has vanished. As Montreal police detective Victor Lessard and his partner, Jacinthe Taillon, work to solve the separate mysteries, a dark history begins to emerge.

While the pressure builds and the bodies accumulate, dark and disturbing secrets come to light about a pivotal moment in political history. But will Lessard and Taillon crack the case in time to prevent the killer from striking again?

Never Forget will leave you bloodless, and I mean that in the nicest possible way.

Alan Bradley, best-selling author of the Flavia de Luce Mysteries

With its breakneck pace and flawless storytelling, this is Michaud’s best novel. A thriller — to remember!

Norbert Spehner, La Presse

Why settle for Scandinavian crime writers when we have in our midst a masterful author who can justly be celebrated as the new star of Quebec crime fiction?

Martine Desjardins, L’actualité

Novelist Martin Michaud has produced a thriller that’s solid, fast-moving, intelligent, and enlivened by moments of sharp humour and political insight.

Marie-France Bornais, Journal de Québec

Readers will be blown away by the imaginative power of this finely-wrought, action-packed thriller. Michaud’s skilled and colourful way with words reveals an excellent storyteller … and a master of suspense.
