Sarah Broadhurst's view...

A tale of drug running, of a couple of ineffectual lads, one who keeps getting caught, of undercover cops, a strange loyalty and great adventure. Slaney and Hearn are in it together but luck is not on their side until Slaney meets a girl. Her soft spot might just save him in the end. There are few surprises here for the lads are being tracked all the way but their journey is so well told you live the adventures with them.

Who is Sarah Broadhurst

The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. It’s 1978. David Slaney is on the run, and he doesn’t want to get caught. He’s already served four years for smuggling drugs. He has to get away, but first he must do one more trip to make good on the previous venture. He has to get across Canada to his friends, then on to Columbia to buy drugs. However, he doesn’t know that he is being watched. Caught brings 1970s Canada to life. It is a page-turner that also displays great psychological insight, with the clever narrative engendering sympathy for Slaney, whilst at the same time showing how he is the master of his own fate.
~ Andrea Rayner

Synopsis

Caught by Lisa Moore

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
