Stanley Evans

Seaweed Under Fire

previousnext Ekstasis Editions

If you want someone’s legs broken, even if you want somebody killed it can be arranged… for a price. The murder of a confidence trickster, followed shortly afterwards by a ruthless second murder suggests that hired killers are at work. Murders pile up. Pursuing the killers takes Coast Salish cop Silas Seaweed on a search through the city’s seedy night clubs and bars. Add a Coast Salish mystic who takes Silas on a return trip to the land of the dead, and a strange black wolf that leads Silas to a mysterious cave and you have another suspenseful thriller.

Evans’s combination of Coast Salish lore and solid plotting is a winner.
~ Globe and Mail

Well worth reading. Evans knows how to set a scene, create vivid minor characters, and is capable of spitting out the requisite snappy dialogue.
~ Monday Magazine

Seaweed on the Rocks is as uniquely Canadian as a painting by Emily Carr. Evans deftly wraps his tale in a richly evocative portrait of native lore…reminiscent of Raymond Chandler (and) the late Tony Hillerman.
~ Sherbrook Record

Stanley Evans’s novels are among Canada’s most exciting new crime fiction, with satisfyingly twisted plots and engaging eccentric characters.
~ Calgary Herald
