Praise

Shortlisted for The 2021 Crime Writers of Canada Awards of Excellence. 

“Silver David Cameron knew intimately the Cape Breton community where the brutal murder of a local who was vandalizing lobster traps took place. But instead of that insider knowledge giving him too narrow a focus, it enables him to see beyond the broad strokes of the story — and so bring to life ideas about power, law, vigilantism and community.” – Toronto Star

A “masterful true account of a celebrated small-town murder.” – The Globe and Mail

“It became known as the ‘murder for lobster’ case. But that description . . . comes nowhere near capturing the complexities of the crime and its effects on the local community. [Cameron] successfully weaves together courtroom drama, memoir, and an insightful exploration of people and place . . . While much time is spent in a courtroom, Blood in the Water is not particularly concerned with innocence and guilt. It’s a book about place, relationships, and our responsibilities to each other.” – Quill & Quire

“A dramatic narrative set in a unique, lovingly drawn setting, where a story about one small community has universal resonance. This is a story not about lobster, but about the grand themes of power and law, security and self-respect.” – CBC
