Last Call at the Ringrose Pub is my first novel. I hope you will enjoy it! If you do, please take the time to post a brief review.

Writing this was a challenge for me: to see if I could write the story from beginning to end and actually finish the damn thing. Just for that, I've given myself five stars.

I wanted to produce a novel set in the West End of Montreal; there are very few published in English. And I wanted to write a story which would bring the taxi industry to life. There are lots of bo

I read Last Call at the Ringrose Pub and found it riveting. I am not usually a fan of fiction novels but I thoroughly enjoyed this one from beginning to end. It's a very exciting story with plenty of plot twists to keep your attention. Rich characters and descriptive writing of the people and places captured me completely. I would strongly recommend this to anyone who enjoys thriller style novels. ...more

Excellent Debut

Admittedly, I am not sure where, or even if, this should be put together with Flash Drive and Last Call. The Ringrose Pub, Taxi Soleil (also known as Sunshine Taxi), and Detective-Sergeant Louis St-Lauren are in all three. But I believe these are stand-alones with just the three things in common.

As the crux of the book, stolen coupons with an alibi the driver refuses to give (good thing!). And there's the matter of the murdered woman last seen in a Sunshine taxi.

Peter Foster takes us on a cleverly crafted journey through the streets of Montreal spanning four decades from the late sixties to the twenty-first century.

As we learn about the machinations of a Montreal taxi company, it becomes clear that shady dealings are afoot, and that the distant past can continue to hold sway over current developments.

This is a fast-paced page-turner of a book destined to keep you guessing as to the outcome right on through to the dramatic and chilling conclusion.

Whether as a driver or somehow involved with one of the drivers. Bad guys abound!! Can the good guys prevail? You'll have to read this book to find out.... PS, you might need score cards to keep track of all the

Great read! Peter Foster's writing style is straightforward, clear, and easy to follow. Although it is a quick read, the book does not short-change on plot and action. If you are interested in reading about a culture that is both very close to and very far from, that of contemporary America, Last Call at the Ringrose Pub delivers in spades. As an anglophone Canadian, I enjoyed reading about the francophone city of Montreal. This is Foster's first novel, and heralds the introduction of a fresh ne ...more
