    Seconded. Excellent writer. Here's a Noir Originals interview with McFetridge conducted by Mike Knowles, another fine Canadian (Hamilton, alas, not Toronto) hardboiled writer: http://www.allanguthrie.co.uk/pages/noir_zine/profiles/john_mcfetridge.php

    DIRTY SWEET by John McFetridge and EVERYBODY KNOWS THIS IS NOWHERE by John McFetridge. On his website he has a short trailer for EKTIN and a free e-book for download. http://johnmcfetridge.ca/

    "A tough and gritty story populated by engagingly seedy characters."
    Booklist

    "The writing is lean, the story moves quickly and McFetridge is already one hell of a storyteller, and hes a Canadian author to watch for."
    Spinetingler Magazine

    "If you love sex, violence and a slice of mystery for good measure, DIRTY SWEET is the right book for you an R-rated thriller. Enjoy this quick money scheming page turner of a story that will make you spin around as John McFetridge shows you the dark side of Toronto and I dont mean the Toronto Maple Leafs! DIRTY SWEET is definitely hot, dirty and sweet."
    Paul Anik, iloveamystery.com

    Highly recommended. And you could always try dropping John a note - he's writing for a new TV series called The Bridge these days (trailer here: http://johnmcfetridge.blogspot.com/2009/04/bridge-trailer.html - it's been picked up by CBS for this fall) but he knows Toronto and lives there, and if there are good bookstores to check out, he'd be the best person to ask.
