              Jason Bourne meets John McClane in this electrifying Taiwanese thriller about a young special-forces sniper ordered to assassinate a high-level government official, and a seasoned homicide detective called in to investigate a series of grisly murders that lead to a criminal consp...iracy at the highest levels of power. Twelve days before retirement, Taipei police detective Wu is handed a curious case: a Navy officer has been found dead in his hotel room. While it is immediately apparent to Wu that the officer has been murdered, the military insist it was suicide and want the case closed with no questions asked. Soon, however, more high-ranking Navy officers turn up dead, and Wu realizes he has a full-blown conspiracy on his hands. Meanwhile in Italy, Alex, a young Taiwanese sniper, ex-Marine, ex-French Foreign Legion, and currently a fried-rice chef in Manarola, is reactivated and called back into service. Ordered to assassinate a high-level Taiwanese government advisor in Rome, he soon finds himself on the run, hunted across Europe by his old brothers-in-arms. Who is killing Navy officers in Taiwan? And who ordered the hit in Rome? As the body count rises, Wu finds himself in a race against time to solve the murders before his retirement, and Alex embarks on a journey back to Taiwan to uncover the truth about who set him up. Inspired by the biggest military corruption case in Taiwanese history -- the murder of Navy Captain Yin Ching-feng -- The Stir-Fry Sniper is both a masterclass in thriller writing and a study of the heart of darkness in the time of war and peace.

              The intertwined story of a cougar and a man that portrays the strength, vulnerability, and consciousness of two top predators. Not since Life of Pi have we encountered such transcendence or walked so fully in the footsteps of a big cat. The Old Woman lives in the wild, searching ...for food, raising her cubs, and avoiding the two-legged creatures who come into her territory. But she is more than an animal - she is a mythic creature who haunts the lives and the dreams of men. Joseph Brandt has been captivated by the mountain lion's legend since childhood, and one day he steps into the forest to seek her out. A classic in the making, The Hunter and the Old Woman is a mesmerizing portrait of two animals united by a shared destiny.

              Roma meets A Gentleman in Moscow in this vivid portrait of the twentieth century, witnessed by one boy from his self-imposed refuge in Mexico City. Galo has not left his home on Amsterdam Street, not since the day in 1938 when a shocking act of violence split his family apart. Hi...s hermitage is made easier by the peculiar design of the street. It is shaped like an ellipse -- if you walk it, you will find yourself returning to the same place again and again. Playing host to Jewish refugees, Spanish exiles, and Latin American revolutionaries, Amsterdam Street becomes the school at which Galo learns about a world he never sees, and the ideals and terrors that shape history. And from his chair in the garden of the home he will not leave, he begins to realize that Amsterdam Street, the site of endless returns, may be the true centre of the world. Appointing himself the street's guardian, Galo witnesses the decades pass, knowing that everyone who walks away must one day come back. A novel of rare humanity and grace, The Guardian of Amsterdam Street is a stunning portrait of a neighbourhood where the whole of the twentieth century comes alive and a moving inquiry into how we shape the world, and how it transforms us in turn.

              Dark family secrets, the lore of the sea, and a tender, protective friendship between women all converge in The Speed of Mercy, an unusual and surprising story set in idyllic rural Nova Scotia. With subtle humour, Conlin picks the locks on the long-closed doors of two families an...d bares the ugly, painful skeletons everyone knew were there but chose to hide. - Sylvia D. Hamilton, author of And I Alone Escaped To Tell You The Speed of Mercy captures the unbearable cost of childhood betrayal and what happens when history is suppressed, our past is forgotten - yet finding the truth can change the future. Christy Ann Conlin rips into the myths and stereotypes about older women and those on the edge of conventional society to reveal the timeless gift of mercy in this feminist tour de force. Christy Ann Conlin is a conjurer: of place, people, and the haunting past. I was instantly caught up in the darkly mysterious world and indelible characters she has brought to life. Gripping, suspenseful, and lyrically written, The Speed of Mercy caught me by the throat and didn't let go. - Alix Ohlin, Scotiabank Giller Prize-shortlisted author of Dual Citizens

              Part literary Western and part historical mystery, Ridgerunner is the follow-up to Gil Adamson's award-winning and critically acclaimed novel The Outlander. November 1917. William Moreland is in mid-flight. After nearly twenty years, the notorious thief, known as the Ridgerunner,... has returned. Moving through the Rocky Mountains and across the border to Montana, the solitary drifter, impoverished in means and aged beyond his years, is also a widower and a father. And he is determined to steal enough money to secure his son's future. Twelve-year-old Jack Boulton has been left in the care of Sister Beatrice, a formidable nun who keeps him in cloistered seclusion in her grand old house. Though he knows his father is coming for him, the boy longs to return to his family's cabin, deep in the woods. When Jack finally breaks free, he takes with him something the nun is determined to get back -- at any cost. Set against the backdrop of a distant war raging in Europe and a rapidly changing landscape in the West, Gil Adamson's follow-up to her award-winning debut, The Outlander, is a vivid historical novel that draws from the epic tradition and a literary Western brimming with a cast of unforgettable characters touched with humour and loss, and steeped in the wild of the natural world.

              Erin Moure, a frequent nominee and winner of the Governor General's and other literary awards, is one of the most consistently innovative, imaginative poets at work in Canada. With each book, Moure seeks nothing less than to re-create the act of writing from the ground up. Little... Theatres follows this approach, appearing at a timely crossroads, when we most need our language to come alive again. Like the water imagery that filigrees through this collection -- at once lingual exchange, submersion, balm, and sustenance -- Moure's multiplicity of voices is fluid, clear, animated, and as shimmering with light and life as ever. Galician and English intermingle in this collection like currents of the same river. An intimate act of cultural and personal interflow, this new work from a major poet has the power to alter the reader's perception of where, and on what scale, the action is taking place.

              A Doctor Pedalled Her Bicycle Over the River Arno (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              A Doctor Pedalled Her Bicycle Over the River Arno carries within it all the technique, vision, imaginative labour and razor precision of Matt Rader's first two collections but ascends, also, to a luminous, demanding, particularized realm of the human we all recognize as the world... we're meant to live in. Whether stranded in a Git'ksan village in northern B.C. or a hallucinatory pensione in modern Italy, these eloquent, troubled poems are the voice we wanted for the night. These poems are unassuming, deeply spirited, and expansive and show us again how contemporary lyric can go such a long way toward revealing our true homes to us at the moment we find ourselves most nakedly un-housed. Rader seeks out limits, borders, and frontiers -- those mapped for us by authority, and their concomitant, interior shadow lines we ourselves draw -- in order to test their validity. If Borges had imagined an atlas of our layered identities, it might look like these songs. Here is the astounding collection from a thrilling new voice in poetry.
