Par un auteur canadien-anglais, une oeuvre romanesque remarquable, selon Réginald Martel. Avec virulence et discrétion, c'est-à-dire avec un humour très anglo-saxon, l'auteur décrit l'ennui et la vie monotone des habitants de banlieue, dans une ville nord-américaine, en l'occurence Toronto. Le héros a pour ainsi dire renoncé à manifester sa personnalité, afin de ne pas déranger un semblant d'harmonie dans les gris, de ne pas troubler un petit monde presque dénué d'imagination et de fantaisie. Pourtant, il arrive que la monstruosité fasse irruption dans les vies les plus banales et qu'il faille retoucher le bilan d'une tranquille faillite

[This is] a short, horrible book... about the revenge quest of a man, Charlie Farris, whose twelve-year-old son is sodomized and killed by unsavory acquaintances of the boy. And, though oddly interrupted by Wright's more typical scenes of sweet affection, the novel is chiefly the simple, headlong, almost atavistic trajectory that governs Charlie's actions after son Jonathan is discovered by the police wrapped in two plastic bags. --Kirkus Reviews, 10/23/1980
