Reviews

"Several things can be said about One or the Other. It's a crime story, it's a historical novel, it's charming -- and above all it's utterly, extremely Montrealish . . . The cover copy calls One or the Other a mystery and in fact Dougherty spends a lot of time investigating a killing. But the book reads more like a sweet love letter to the Montreal of four decades ago." -- National Post

"John McFetridge writes with deft characterization and keen insight into working class identity." -- National Post

"Eddie Dougherty is the kind of guy who grows on you, and now, in John McFetridge's third Dougherty novel, Eddie is in full bloom as a solid character and an intuitively smart cop...a McFetridge book at his excellent best." -- Toronto Star

"Dougherty is once again a basically decent working-class bilingual cop -- who, it must be pointed out, sometimes beats information out of lowlifes -- who serves as our window on our unknown or forgotten socio-political history, educating us slowly while awakening to the real world around him and solving crimes in another superb McFetridge whodunit." -- Winnipeg Free Press

"Dougherty is a believable, complicated and yearning character in another fine McFetridge achievement." -- The London Free Press

"McFetridge seamlessly weaves these period details into a fast-paced narrative . . . This is an enjoyable read brimming with colorful characters that immerses readers in a tumultuous period in Canadian history." -- Publishers Weekly
