If you are looking for a good summer read, check out my novel, Tailings of Warren Peace. It is a social justice thriller and story that explores love, death, corporate mining criminals and the solidarity community that struggles to make sense of it all. The novel is set in Guatemala, Toronto and Nova Scotia and is published by a small independent publisher (Roseway – which is an imprint of Fernwood),

Here’s what people are saying about the novel: 


“…a first-rate thriller that both entertains and prods readers to ask questions about the politics of wealth. The entertainment comes from a fast-paced plot that ricochets from the streets of Toronto to the mines of Cape Breton and the mountains of Guatemala…it is impossible to write this book off as merely a good read…” Kate Watson, Atlantic Books Today Spring 2013 http://www.youblisher.com/p/610542-Atlantic-Books-Today-Spring-2013/


 “Stephen Law has taken a genre where few have recently shone and crafted a story that will have you shirking whatever you said you'd be doing. You'll miss appointments for this book. The house will go dirty(er). The dogs will howl for dinner. It's that good.”  - Miles Howe, Halifax Media Coop:  <http://halifax.mediacoop.ca/blog/miles-howe/16816> http://halifax.mediacoop.ca/blog/miles-howe/16816

"It’s often said that people should write about what they know. And what Stephen Law knows is the issue of foreign corporations — including Canadian businesses — conducting mining operations in other countries.Tailings of Warren Peace may be a title with a play on words, but the novel itself is serious." Ian Fairclough, The Chronicle Herald : http://thechronicleherald.ca/books/1096278-a-novel-of-base-metals-and-low-deeds

"Tailings of Warren Peace manages to wind disparate threads into a ripping yarn, wound around personal stories …  While the characters and the situations may be fictional, they bring to light truths too often kept hidden, telling of the depth of disruption and corruption engendered by mining companies' insatiable need to profit from the Earth's riches and the workers who extract them … A great read.”​  - Jamie Kneen, MiningWatch Canada


“Tailings of Warren Peace is a gripping tale that eerily reflects a disturbing reality in global politics. It takes the reader on a scintillating and mysterious journey that twists and turns from Canada to Guatemala, war to peace, and loss to love. This book is a celebration of the human spirit. “  Garry Leech, author of Beyond Bogota
