Bellevue Square

1 Mins read

Doppelg√§nger themes aren’t all that common in crime fiction, but Canadian author Michael Redhill uses one to beautiful effect in his award-winning novel Bellevue Square. Bookseller Jean Mason becomes convinced that her double has been frequenting the Kensington Market area of Toronto and sets out to find her. She starts hanging out in Bellevue Square, home to philosophers and druggies alike, but when she finally tracks down the mysterious Katarina, a murder occurs… Brilliant characters and a wicked storyline in this psychological thriller. Read the full review here.
