Last Night in Montreal is literary crime fiction of the highest order. It is unusual to encounter a novel that so vividly creates a sense of life on the run . . . Intense and lyrical, the novel asks unsettling questions about who is the real victim of the tragedy that looms over the characters.
Mandel is an exuberant storyteller
Finely wrought . . . What we're made to ponder is the mystery of human connection: how it is born, how it fades and dies and revives, how love defines us or leaves us undone
Taut, gripping . . . elegantly compelling
