Product description


"Not since P. D. James's Adam Dalgliesh has there been a police inspector as sophisticated as MacNeice." -- Toronto Star

"The reader is . . . compelled to go on, in part because that killer, if not a superior, twisted mind, is a first-class jerk and we love to see such people get their comeuppance." -- National Post

"Thornley's intelligent and evocative prose, combined with his depictions of complex police investigations, brings to mind one of Canada's most prominent, bestselling crime writers, Peter Robinson." -- Quill & Quire

"This series will be a real winner." -- Margaret Cannon, Globe and Mail

"A page-turner with a Sherlockian twist." -- Hamilton Spectator

"An auspicious debut for author Scott Thornley." -- Salon

"MacNeice is a splendid addition to the pantheon of [literary] detectives. . . . A first-class mystery." -- Vancouver Sun

"For crime fiction junkies, Scott Thornley's first novel, Erasing Memory, a beautifully written police procedural set in a fictional version of Hamilton, just whets our appetite for more. Our hero, senior homicide detective Mac MacNeice, a literate and complex man who may remind the reader of Peter Robinson's beloved Inspector Banks, runs an interesting team of investigators dealing with a truly weird murder. Please tell me this is the first of a series." -- Stevie Cameron, author of On the Farm: Robert William Pickton and the Tragic Story of Vancouver's Missing Women

"Beginning with a murder unlike any you've ever imagined -- or would want to -- Scott Thornley spins a gripping tale whose heroes and villains are equally and refreshingly human." -- Howard Shrier, author of Buffalo Jump

About the Author

SCOTT THORNLEY grew up in Hamilton, Ontario, which inspired his fictional Dundurn. He is the author of four novels in the critically acclaimed MacNeice Mysteries series: Erasing Memory, The Ambitious City, Raw Bone, and the forthcoming Vantage Point. Thornley divides his time between Toronto and the southwest of France.
