"From the bestselling author of The Saturday Night Ghost Club and Precious Cargo (finalist for Canada Reads) comes this fast-paced, supremely satisfying collection of stories--his first since Rust and Bone, which was adapted into a Golden Globe-nominated film. Set in in the Niagara Falls of Craig Davidson's imagination, known by its denizens as "Cataract City," Cascade shines a shimmering light on a slightly seedy, slightly magical, slightly haunted place. An ex-Marine sniper gets caught up in the illicit trade of exotic animals and, when a deal goes bad, must stalk the snowy suburbs of Cataract City, hunting a wild panther dosed with adrenaline. A pregnant social worker grapples with the prospect of parenthood as a custody case takes a dire turn. A hard-boiled ex-firefighter turned arson investigator goes after a serial arsonist with a flair for the theatrical. An ex-con, ex-pro basketball player joins a minor league team and becomes the unlikely mentor to a wildly talented young player with a strange gift. These are just some of the unforgettable characters who animate this stellar collection of tales. Here are stories crackling with immediacy, as the superb craft and kinetic energy of classic Craig Davidson is everywhere apparent: in the visceral, crystalline, steel-tipped prose; in the psychological perspicacity; and in the endearing humour--making Cascade reminiscent of Stephen King's brilliantly cinematic short stories that went on to inspire films such as The Shawshank Redemption and Stand by Me."--Provided by publisher.… (mere)
