  • Short Description

A con man, a Ponzi scheme, a manhunt, and a crossbow.

On his return to Montreal, Riley becomes entangled in the wreckage left behind by Brandt, a con man who ran a Ponzi scheme. When the fifty-million-dollar scam falls apart and dozens of people are left destitute, some of them figure that Brandt?s wife Terry must know where he?s hiding out. Riley?s not convinced, but then Terry?s the woman Riley was living with when he left Montreal twenty years before.

Michael Blair?s first novel (If Looks Could Kill, M&S, 2001) was shortlisted for the 1999 Chapters/Robertson Davies Prize and the 2001 Quebec Writers? Federation First Book Prize. Since then he has published five more novels, most recently True Believers (Linda Leith Publishing, 2015). He lives in Montreal.

The path is funny, smart and full of great dialogue and clever characters. Gullibility kills, all right, but it also makes for a terrific plotline for a possible murder. ?Margaret Cannon, The Globe and Mail,, on True Believers.
