Booklist Review of Grinder

Canadian Knowles’ short, taut thriller is set on Prince Edward Island and in and around Toronto. Two years ago, Wilson barely survived a Mob shootout and escaped from Toronto with most people thinking he was dead. He recuperated and began to build a new life in a small fishing village on Prince Edward Island. Despite living off the grid, his past eventually catches up to him, and he’s drawn back to Toronto. Wilson doesn’t want to return to his old life, but he must complete one final task, finding out who kidnapped the foolish sons of the local Mob boss after they talked about Mob business on a series of YouTube videos. With lots of action and tension and plenty of dialogue, Wilson’s story moves along rapidly as he struggles to cut his ties to the past.
