Caught Synopsis

Caught by Lisa Moore

Caught Press Reviews

The heady zest of freedom pervades this novel. Fresh out of jail, Slaney sees the world with pin-bright clarity. As the plot tightens like a pair of pincers, Lisa Moore's prose is worth lingering over. -- Janet Davey

 

In the creation of David Slaney, Lisa Moore brings us an unforgettable character, embodying the exuberance and energy of misspent youth. Caught is a propulsive and harrowing read. -- Patrick DeWitt, author of The Sisters Brothers

 

Caught is a literary adventure story, which is to say it is both action-packed while being an investigation into character and motive. An outstanding novel, combining the complexity of the best literary fiction with the page-turning compulsive readability of a thriller. -  National Post

 

As trippy, mellow, and revelatory as Hearn's weed, Caught takes pleasure from rewriting crime formulas and gives pleasure in doing so. -  The Vancouver Sun
