ABOUT THIS BOOK
Disgraced ex-cop Sloane Donovan has relied on her job as a fitness instructor to keep her mental illness and PTSD in check—until she finds a close friend dead, apparently by her own hand. Obsessive demons triggered and doubtful of the official narrative, she teams up with Wayne Capson, a PI willing to bend the law, to find out who really killed her friend. The search leads Sloane from Vancouver's wealthiest enclaves to the street's darkest corners, questioning millionaires, tennis instructors, sex workers, former police colleagues—anyone who might provide answers.
J.T. Siemens’s To Those Who Killed Me is a debut that provides a heavy dose of hardboiled suspense and introduces a fiery new heroine in crime fiction.

“An exhilarating white-knuckled thrill ride that blasts out of the gates and doesn’t let up for a moment. In his debut crime novel, Siemens brilliantly weaves together gripping tension and page-turning twists while showcasing a penchant for depicting the glamour and grit of Vancouver and introducing one of the most complex heroines I’ve ever read. Sloane Donovan is a compelling force not to be missed.”

“A scorching debut. Donovan is a sleuth to be reckoned with.”
— Sam Wiebe, award-winning author of the Wakeland novels
"This gritty crime tale, which snakes through Vancouver’s squalid backstreets, plunges the fearless, at times reckless heroine into a surfeit of horrific encounters with addicts and abusers, rapists, and killers. This isn’t for the faint-hearted."
— Publishers Weekly (full review)
“The pages raced by in the exhilarating feeling of a great read.”
— Bill Selnes, Mysteries and More From Saskatchewan (full review)
“To Those Who Killed Me is a wildly entertaining book, so when you pick it up, be prepared to be riveted. Get comfy, make some tea or coffee, and settle in for action-packed pages that will keep you glued to finding out what happened. And I’m hoping the ending has set readers up for more Sloane Donovan adventures.”
