One by one they fall like flies . . . with his portrait of unyielding revenge in the small town of Bonavista in northern Ontario, E A St Amant has created a dark masterpiece . . . one horrible crime of hate and rape leads to circumstances with far-reaching effects. The book’s symbolism and relentless plot twists brings the reader to the full reality of the depths, decay and undercurrent of much of the human heart.

“This exceptionally descriptive and unexpectedly dark tale took me to a place so unusual that I was positively impressed. Its black humour combined with farcical and sometimes outright evil capers will leave you in awe. You’ll love and hate the characters he has created, be glad to see them go, feel sadness in their passing and wonder if you’ll ever be safe in a small town again.”

the story takes place in the small town of Bonavista . . . it introduces many characters who are quite memorable due to their frightening singularity. The story makes exceptional use of raucous humor combined with a compelling drama of unmerciful vigilante retribution that will have you turning pages to the last . . .

this plunges you into the heart of Bonavista, a small French Catholic town in Northern Ontario, Canada. Minor plots complete with the main themes in the fog bound coming of age of Jed Bouchard. This is the world of violence, rape and outright evil. Events wash over the protagonists like a force of nature, dark, even black revenge. One fine novel.

this is the fourth St. Amant novel that I have read. He has quickly become one of my favourite authors. Similar to the old west adage from the Hebrew Bible, "An eye for an eye." Fog Walker is a gripping tale of revenge in a modern day small-town. Strong characters, raw emotions and great story. Would make an excellent movie.

I imagine that the King is truly one of the funniest creepiest evil-characters ever. He is memorable but wicked in every sense. Bonavista is surely a hell on earth, and in quiet loveable Northern Ontario, who would have ever guessed?

First of all, it was a captivating read; of the four books I’ve read of E A St Amant so far, I enjoyed this one the most. Dancing in the Costa Rican Rain is a marvellous read and its quality is obvious, nonetheless, this exceptionally descriptive and unexpectedly dark tale took me to a place so unusual that I was positively impressed. Its black humour combined with farcical and sometimes outright evil capers will leave you in awe. You’ll love and hate the characters he has created, be glad to see them go, feel sadness in their passing and wonder if you’ll ever be safe in a small town again.
