Description

This bestselling sequel to the award-winning April Fool is a fastpaced, laugh-out-loud story of madness, murder, and mayhem.

Is someone systematically killing the judges of the B.C. bar? At least one has been murdered and several have disappeared. Arthur Beauchamp returns from retirement once again to take on the case, this time defending his former nemesis, backwoods poet Cudworth Brown, and tracking down a mystery novel that Brown’s demented former lawyer has been writing – all this just as his own wife, Margaret, has announced her candidacy for the Green Party in a forthcoming federal by-election.

Complex, madcap, and peopled with some of the most delightfully eccentric characters to be found between two covers, Kill All the Judges more than proves William Deverell’s mastery of the hilarious crime novel.

Contributor Notes

William Deverell’s acclaimed first novel, Needles, which drew on his experiences as a criminal lawyer, won the $50,000 Seal Award. Since then he has published thirteen further novels, including Trial of Passion, for which he won the Hammett Prize for literary excellence in crime writing and Canada’s Arthur Ellis Award for best crime novel. He won the Arthur Ellis Best Novel Award again in 2006 for April Fool. He winters in Costa Rica and spends his summers on Pender Island in B.C.

Editorial Review

Kill All the Judges finds [Deverell] at the top of his game. . . . A vastly entertaining criminal proceeding.” – Toronto Star
“Expert crackling wit, laugh-out-loud crime and madcap characters.” – Canadian Living
“Compelling. . . . For all its seemingly lighthearted humour, this is a work of great depth and complexity.” – Globe and Mail
“There’s a reason why people flock to hear William Deverell. . . . He’s a master of the laugh-out-loud crime novel.” – Vancouver Sun
“In translating the drama of the courtroom to the novel, B.C.’s William Deverell is rivalled only by Rumpole’s John Mortimer.” – Toronto Star
“A delightful, witty and satisfying read.” – BC BookWorld
