David Rotenberg’s Decker Roberts is back,
and he always knows when you're telling the truth.
Since Decker Roberts’ last run in with the NSA, he’s been trying to remain off
the radar, searching for his estranged son. His synaesthetic abilities, once a
lucrative gift, are increasingly becoming a liability.
When a vicious attack wipes out the best and brightest of America’s young minds,
devastating the country's future, Decker is forced to step out of the shadows
and help track down the killer. And as the hunt brings him in contact with other
people of "his kind," Decker begins to realize that there may be depths to his
gifts that he had never even imagined.
Meanwhile, several parties are secretly tracking the progress of Decker's son,
Seth, trying to determine if he has the same unique gift as his father. Decker
is determined to go to any lengths to find his son, but along the way he will
have to face down enemies, both old and new, as well as struggle with whether
his son even wants to be found.
David Rotenberg's thrilling sequel to The Placebo Effect is full of suspense,
and will challenge what you think you know about people who have special
"gifts." From rural Africa to downtown Toronto, the paths of Rotenberg's
colorful characters intertwine as they move towards a conclusion that none of
them can see coming.
"A Murder of Crows is a slick and readable thriller with great characters
(Crazy Eddie the computer nerd is perfection) and lots of action.
This is a great rainy-day companion."—The Globe & Mail
"Rotenberg tells the tale in short, action-packed chapters that go down
like chilled vodka shots."—TORONTO LIFE -
"David Rotenberg’s second book in the Junction Chronicles—so named
after the Toronto neighbourhood in which the main character lives—is ingenious.
How else to describe a read that is irreverent yet thought-provoking
at the same time?"—Halifax Chronicle Herald
