In this blistering new novel from visionary author John Jantunen, three young men with a history of violence are on a collision course set against the idyllic backdrop of northern Ontario’s cottage country.

Rene Descartes, a recently released ex-con, is living in a ramshackle trailer only a short distance from Hidden Cove, a secluded paradise where the country’s rich and famous relax in opulent gated summer retreats. A savage attack against Rene by the son of the fourth richest man in the country spurns a brutal act of revenge that will ignite this paradise into a fiery vision of hell on earth. As the flames threaten to engulf rich and poor alike, only Deacon Riis, a small-town reporter haunted by his own past, suspects it wasn’t Rene who set Hidden Cove ablaze but someone with a far more sinister agenda: to write into life the apocalyptic world imagined by the late George Cleary, a local novelist who was convinced that the end of times is now.

John Jantunen lives with his wife and two sons in Capreol, Ontario. His debut novel, Cipher, was shortlisted for the Kobo Emerging Writer Prize while his second, A Desolate Splendor, was also an apocalyptic thriller. No Quarter is his third book.

No Quarter has the skeleton of a thriller, but author John Jantunen consistently zigs where other narratives would zag, creating a story that is far stranger and disturbing. . . the connections add a wonderful layer of dread to No Quarter.” — Shelf Awareness

“All in all, No Quarter is a solid read, particularly for those who enjoy their thrillers local.” — Toronto Star

“A unique and extraordinary novel by an author with a genuine flair for character and narrative driven storytelling, John Jantunen's No Quarter is a simply riveting read from beginning to end. . . very highly recommended for community library Contemporary General Fiction collections.” — Midwest Book Review

“[An] intense and gripping novel from an author with a well honed gift for narrative driven storytelling, John Jantunen’s No Quarter is a riveting and original story of violence played out against the bucolic and picturesque background of northern Ontario's cottage country.” — Midwest Book Review
