Caught by Lisa Moore book cover

Slaney, our Newfoundland-born pot-smuggling protagonist, breaks out of a Nova Scotia prison and sets out on a journey that could end in disaster at every turn. The staccato-like writing makes for a fast-paced read in which Slaney’s former and future partner in crime, Hearn, are hoping the second time’s the charm with their big deal gone wrong; bringing a boatload of Columbian pot to Canada. The book is witty, retrospective, eloquent and exciting. Moore has crafted an old-timey adventure with good guys and bad guys — who are also one in the same.
