Friday Finds: The Carnivore

The Carnivore by Mark Sinnett

Friday Finds is hosted by Should Be Reading.

Here’s the blurb from the publisher:

When Hurricane Hazel tore through Toronto on October 15, 1954, it left its mark on both the city and its inhabitants. In the aftermath, a young cop named Ray Townes emerges as a hero—numerous accounts detail the way he battled the raging Humber River to save those trapped in their homes—and his story is featured prominently in the newspapers, thrusting him into the spotlight as a local celebrity.

Meanwhile, his wife Mary is wrestling with doubts about her husband’s heroism. While performing her own miracles the night of the storm as a nurse at a mud-filled, overcrowded emergency room, Mary met a woman—disoriented and near death—with a disturbingly peculiar recollection of events. While Mary tries to shake her suspicions about Ray as they rebuild their life in the shell-shocked city, she can’t help but wonder about her husband and that fateful night. When a reporter comes knocking 50 years later to revisit that horrendous night, the truth begins to surface and threatens to destroy them.

Looks like Ray may be harboring a little secret! The cover and title caught my eye first but the synopsis is just as appealing.

  1. Oh, yes! The title caught my attention, and that synopsis makes me wonder what he was doing during the hurricane … sounds creepy!

  2. I admit, I usually skim right past Friday Finds. I read this one though, and the description plus the title make me really curious. You'll definitely have to review this one when you read it.
