“From the bridge, the riverbanks stretch into the distance, narrowing, until they pinch and close, succumbing to forest. The sun is low and cold; mist lifts from the water. It is somewhere there, along that stretch, that the body is buried. I don’t know where. To be frank, I don’t care.”
From dark Buffalo streets to the dockyards of Eastern Canada, these gripping noir tales embed the reader in the gritty world that exists beneath the pristine beauty of a winter’s night.
In Six Feet Deep, the line between right and wrong isn’t just uncertain – it doesn’t seem to exist at all. With femme fatales, anti-heroes, and dirty cops, this slim tome is Balsom’s modern answer to Raymond Chandler, Humphrey Bogart, and Rita Hayworth.

Snow muffles but the hard winter air amplifies all. Pristine white banks accentuate droplets of blood. With the thaw, long forgotten tales emerge.
