Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

A three-year-old boy is abandoned at the side of a country road. His mother whispers to him to hold on to a wire fence. She never returns, but the boy is eventually found - holding on so tightly the wire is cutting into his hands. Well dressed, but without identification, the only clue to his background is a photograph of two young girls and a chatty letter from a teenager found in his pocket. Sixteen years later, Walker Devereux is in Toronto to discover the truth about his early life. Who are his parents? Why was he abandoned? And if, as he remembers dimly, his mother loved him, what happened to her? In pursuit of answers Walker uncovers his family's dark secrets and comes within the deadly grasp of a man whose own early abandonment helped transform a lonely boy into a murderous psychopath ...Midnight Cab is a compelling and utterly captivating thriller that heralds the arrival of a formidable new talent.

From the Back Cover:

“Canadian writer James W. Nichol has turned his riveting 35-part radio drama into his first novel, and it’s a spellbinder” -- Toronto Sun

“[a]n impressive debut….Nichol weaves all this churning emotion into a tight, complex narrative replete with red herrings and sudden outbursts of violence….Just as the late great mystery writer L.R. Wright turned the pastoral Sunshine Coast in British Columbia into a nightmarish swamp, James W. Nichol extracts a creepy sense of menace from Ontario’s cottage country.” -- Hamilton Spectator, 9 March 2002

“A must-read from one of Canada’s best playwrights…” -- Ottawa Citizen, 10 March 2002

“Refreshing….I read the book in one fell swoop.” -- Vancouver Sun, 23 February 2002

“A delightful ride…. Now fans of the widely popular CBC radio program Midnight Cab will step on it to pick up James W. Nichol’s book of the same name…. Nichol’s reality-based descriptions of Toronto are delightful….Hyptnotic….Nichol’s elegantly simple and taut prose becomes addictive.” -- Rebecca Caldwell, The Globe and Mail, March 2, 2002

“Take one nineteen-year-old determined to discover the identity of his parents, team him up with a rebellious young woman tied as much to her family as to her wheelchair, and threaten him with the sick violence of an unknown psychopath. The result: a mesmerizing story of two unforgettable people whose pairing is as gratifying as it is unlikely.” -- Timothy Findley

Midnight Cab is a superb piece of suspense fiction which somehow manages to be warm and chilling at the same time.” -- John MacLachlan Gray
