A beautiful woman's spine is broken as she watches her boyfriend burn to death out on a creek, and Daltrey, a young detective, wants to know why.


With the help of a legendary but aging private detective, an unwitting supermodel, and a host of others lurking in the mayhem of Vancouver's seedy underbelly, Daltrey hunts a psychopath through webs of prostitution, deception, and savage violence.


Dark, undeniably funny, Burn is a tale of revenge and the elusive fantasies driving its hero’s, villains, and strange tag alongs.


Paul Slatter presents a portrait of the lies, hilarious perversions, and raw psychotic impulses at the heart of modern life in a too-close-for-comfort romp that keeps us laughing on every page.
