Never Forget will leave you bloodless, and I mean that in the nicest possible way.
Alan Bradley, author of the Flavia de Luce Mysteries
Martin Michaud is a master at twisty storytelling and compelling atmosphere. This kept me on the edge of my seat from start to finish. I can't wait to read Lessard's next case!
Catherine McKenzie, author of I’ll Never Tell
This chilling Quebec-set thriller opens with a grisly murder worthy of a Saw movie... A fine crime novel featuring a cast of well-delineated characters and a plot that demands the reader's undivided attention.
French Canadian author Michaud makes his English-language debut with this raucous crime thriller.
Never Forget is a crackerjack read. Michaud artfully constructs the world of the Montreal police and a broad cast of characters while keeping his eye steady on ways to ratchet up the tension at every turn.
Quill & Quire
Michaud goes back to the events of the seventies in Montreal when the FLQ was kidnapping cabinet ministers and the revelation was made public that the CIA had conducted mind-control experiments in Montreal hospitals. Michaud is at his best recalling those fraught times through the cooler lens of our present day. It’s great to see Canadian history used to such good effect in a story that resonates as well today as when it happened.
Globe and Mail
[An] immersive thriller full of darkness, loathing, and vengeance.
Montreal Review of Books
With its breakneck pace and flawless storytelling, this is Michaud’s best novel. A thriller to remember!
Norbert Spehner, La Presse
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
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?
Martine Desjardins, L’actualité
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.
Lisanne Rheault-Leblanc, 7 Jours
Never Forget is a triumph.
