Vancouver PI Dave Wakeland is back--this time staring down the knife edge of corruption and murder.

No one knows what happened to Tabitha Sorensen. The brilliant but troubled student seems to have vanished, leaving a deadly trail of missing millions and links to a notorious family of criminals. Hired to find her, Wakeland matches wits and fists with suburban gangsters, corrupt authorities, and a contract killer with a fondness for blades--one of which seems destined for Wakeland's throat. 

Aided by Sonia Drego, a police officer and former lover with dangerous secrets of her own, Wakeland must uncover the deadliest killer that the morally challenged young detective has ever faced. From the back alleys of a rapidly changing Vancouver, to the wilds of Washington, to a suburban sprawl where things aren't what they seem, Wakeland crosses borders--and lines--in a treacherous game of cat and mouse that pushes him to his limits, and threatens to leave everything he cares for in pieces.

 

Sam Wiebe does it again with CUT YOU DOWN

smart and razor-sharp, with a plot that keeps unraveling

all the way to its exciting, unputdownable conclusion."

David Swinson, author of The Second Girl and Crime Song

 

"A highly intelligent and satisfying page-turner."  

 Janie Chang, author of national bestseller Dragon Springs Road
 

"Tense, turbulent, and terrific. PI Dave Wakeland is the best kind of anti-hero, riding the edge between right and wrong, creating an unbreakable bond with the reader. Wiebe's evocative prose, unexpected reveals, and riveting characters--including a contract killer who's ace with a blade--will grab you from the first page.”
K.J. Howe, author of The Freedom Broker
 
"Sam Wiebe pulls no punches in his latest thriller,
CUT YOU DOWN. Gripping, complex, and with an unusual play
on the classic femme fatale trope, this is crime fiction at its best."
Sheena Kamal, author of The Lost Ones

BOLO Books: "Perfect for readers who enjoy an atmospheric social novel in which setting and character merge to create a powerful whole."
