“Riveting. The courtroom scenes are brilliant." –– Beverley McLachlin, 17th Chief Justice of Canada
STUNG will hit the bookshelves in March, 2021, and will contemporaneously be available online and as an audio book. At more than 600 pages, this political/environmental thriller is my longest by a literary country mile (though priced affordably). It has been my work-in-progress for the last three years.
Advance copies (pre-copyedited) have already earned reviews. A sampling:
Literary icon Joy Kogawa, author of Obasan:
"A blistering ride on a flaming meteor."
Brian Fawcett: Author of Cambodia, Human Happiness, and Virtual Clearcut, winner of the Writer’s Trust Non-fiction prize:
"Some writers get better with age. Stung, William Deverell’s 9th Arthur Beauchamp novel, might be the best yet: it is utterly readable, deliciously witty and interesting, politically and ecologically timely, and filled with characters you’d happily spend time with. It even has an Irish wolfhound! Deverell isn’t just one of our best crime/mystery writers. He’s one of our best writers, period."
