Rezension: "Dietrich Kalteis "The Deadbeat Club" is a rockin 21st century wild west shootout. But the Earp brothers and the Clantons got nothing on Grey Stevens, Travis Rainey and the Indo Army as they go guns blazing over drug turf in supposedly serene Whistler, Canada in this hallucinogenic, THC fueled noir thriller. Firefights with AK 47s and Double Glocks make the Gunfight at the OK Corral look like kids play. But instead of battling over water rights or who stole the money from the stagecoach, as in a western, these guys are battling over the lucrative drug trade in laid back, happy-go-lucky, easy-going, I ll-kill-you-for-that kilo-of-dope, British Columbia. Kaltheis shoots noir into the 21st century with a loud bang." Paul D. Marks, Shamus Awardwinning author of noir-thriller "White Heat"
""The Deadbeat Club" is authentic West Coast crime, a rollicking tour through Whistler after dark, populated by ski bums and scallywags, gang-bangers and lovable losers on both sides of the law, and written with a staccato, snare-drum energy that keeps the pages turning. This is Breaking Bad for the ganja set, Elmore Leonard in Vansterdam. A heck of a lot of fun." Owen Lakkanen, author of "The Professionals""

An Elmore Leonard inflected, witty plunge into the vernacular and particular shape of drug crime and culture in the area . . . This book deserves to be something of a breakout for Kalteis, who does for Vancouver and Whistler what George V. Higgins does for Boston and Jean-Claude Izzo does for Marseille: he animates familiar streets with excitement, crime, and appealing characters, providing readers with a most entertaining tourist manual. "National Post"
Killer gifts for your favourite mystery lover, and everyone else feature, December 21, 2015, Pull quote: The dialogue is some of the sharpest and funniest I ve seen in any book this year. "National Post"
