Recommends it for: Lovers of thrillers and Canadian writing
When I read Denis Coupal’s thriller Blindshot, my overall impression of it was of competence - he had done all the right things, yet, when reading it, I didn’t exactly break out in a sweat. But what he did manage, and this takes some doing, was to make me read it in three hours straight, from 10 pm on page 1, to 1 am the next morning on page 341. I kept wanting to put it down and yet I kept turning over the pages, and then it was one in the morning and I had reached the last page - and then he m ...more

Great read. A real page turner. I loved the twist at the end and the fact the heroes were unexpected!

When a wealthy businessman is shot, the true nature of the town is slowly revealed through the relationships of the key power players in the community. The shooting also sets the businessman's young sons on a path looking for justice, or maybe just revenge.

Coupal's observations of this world and of human nature elevate i

Excellent story! Kickass ending too. Felt like a real village populated with lots of shady characters. A very enjoyable read.

Riveting, realistic noir set in small-town Quebec in eastern Canada. With a tense plot revolving around detective protagonist Tom Doran and the family of a murdered man vs. that man's murderers, this book's got it all: characters you care about, clean writing with some killer lines straight out of Chandler, a well-drawn and increasingly claustrophobic small-town setting, a simple but expertly woven plot that crescendos to a perfect climax and conclusion, etc. Denis Coupal's Blindshot was recentl ...more

An absolutely riveting story set in beautiful place, involving family, community, cottage country and other relationships, with fantastic mystery at center of this story too.

No spoilers here, but I was totally satisfied with this books ending, not predictable, but perfect for this story. I strongly recommend this book as a great read, and I thank Denis Coupal for writing this great story too.
