The Carnivore

ebook

A wife harbors suspicions about her husband's image as a hero cop in this suspenseful novel, a winner of the Toronto Book Award.

Back in 1954, Hurricane Hazel barreled through Toronto, killing eighty-one people. Ray and Mary Townes were a young married couple, and while Mary, a nurse, performed her own small miracles that night, her police officer husband was celebrated for his heroism as the newspapers reported on his lifesaving rescues.

As the two tried to resume their life together in the shell-shocked city, Mary felt some doubt about her husband's story. But the truth remained elusive—until the day, decades later, when a reporter came knocking . . .

Suspenseful and moving, The Carnivore is a tale of both a historical natural disaster, and the quiet dangers that lurk within a marriage, with "many twists and turns [and] lots of action" (The Globe and Mail, Toronto).

"A cleverly constructed and evocatively written novel." —Booklist
