Tom and Jeremy live in a world of drugs, prostitutes and violence. When Tom is suspected of working for the police, he becomes a pawn in a game much larger and dangerous than he ever thought possible.
A new novel from one of our best young writers, Blood Sports is the tough, gritty story of the brutal cat-and-mouse relationship between two cousins -- Tom and Jeremy Bauer -- set in Vancouver's Downtown East Side. Tom, a young man, hardly innocent, has been caught up over the years in Jeremy's world of drugs, extortion, and prostitutes, while Jeremy, vindictive, vicious, either protects Tom or uses him, but always controls him. Added to the mix is Paulie, a junkie two years clean and Tom's girlfriend, and also the mother of his daughter. This lethal triangle shifts when word gets out Tom has been talking to the police, and men from the past who have a lot to lose reappear. Suddenly Tom and Paulie are pawns in a much larger game, with everything at stake. With the storytelling skill and engrossing characterizations that have made her previous books so popular, Robinson keeps the tension humming in this riveting novel. This is Eden Robinson at the height of her powers.
