Never Forget


Police detectives Victor Lessard and Jacinthe Taillon must race to track down a ruthless killer.

When an eccentric homeless man jumps to his death in Old Montreal, the police discover two wallets in his possession; those of a retired psychiatrist who was recently murdered in a bizarre ritual and a powerful corporate lawyer who has vanished. As police detective Victor Lessard and his partner, Jacinthe Taillon, work to solve the separate mysteries, a shared past begins to emerge.

While the pressure builds and the bodies accumulate, dark and disturbing secrets come to light about a pivotal moment in Quebec‘s history. But will Lessard and Taillon crack the case in time to prevent the killer from striking again?


With its breakneck pace, flawless storytelling and fluid, unpretentious style, [Never Forget] is Michaud’s best novel. A thriller … to remember!

Why settle for Scandinavian crime writers when we have in our midst a masterful author who can justly be celebrated as the new star of Quebec crime fiction?

Novelist Martin Michaud has produced a thriller that’s solid, fast-moving, intelligent, and enlivened by moments of sharp humour and political insight.

Marie-France Bornais, Journal de Québec

Readers will be blown away by the imaginative power of this finely-wrought, action-packed thriller. Michaud’s skilled and colourful way with words reveals an excellent storyteller … and a master of suspense.
