​A burned body found in a warehouse is only the first baffling death. 

As Ian goes further into the mystery, the body count climbs higher.

Chasing a decade-old cold case, a long-missing thug and people who are never what they seem to be, this truly is 'death by deceit'.

The Dead Don't Dream

You are a Toronto police detective, lying in the gutter, shot by the man you were pursuing,

and your life is slipping slowly away. Your assailant murdered a number of people,

but you wanted to bring him in alive, before he himself was killed.

What you know, and he doesn’t, are the names of the people who want him dead.

The Dead Don’t Dream takes readers back to the year 1973 in the world of Ian McBriar,
a homicide police detective who battled bigotry, racism, and personal tragedy to become
one of the few Métis constables in the department. Haunted by the deaths he has
investigated and the lives he has seen destroyed, Ian struggles every night with
the memories that make him who he is.
Can Ian survive his attack and track down the gunman before more lives are lost?
