Review by: I. Readalot on Aug. 11, 2011 : (no rating)
This is the second story I downloaded by this author and I forced myself to read five percent of it before I again gave up. It was all narrative, as would be the case with a man alone in a canoe. My taste in crime novels is for action not goofy inner reflection. Others may enjoy this type of writing, I didn’t. To me it’s a two, but I’ll refrain from ruining it for others since I barely started it.

Review by: W. Addison Gast on May 11, 2011 :
Well, Lenny ALMOST had a story here that was interesting to follow. That is, if you like canoes, endless portages and a plot that starts on page one and you still do not understand even on the last page. I liked his previous story—death on the island but this one was quite different. The humorous Canadian vernacular and the constant running metaphors, along with the character Bob’s So-Ho accent and dialogue require going back over the line a few times to get the drift but the storyline continues. It was going well until the character Pica made her entrance. This turned the story from a story well written literature form to erotica on a canoe. Her first lines where she meets chubby Win on the dock holding the cat and asks “would you like to pet my pussy?” should tell the reader where this was going. It was not enough she teased the entire group with innuendos but the constant rehash of who she was boefing and about giving the cop a BJ in the cruiser was not necessary. The discussion on her thoughts of the Character George’s nine inch dick and doing her own Uncle were superfluous to the story, I thought. I’d like to say something nice about the story as Eric Winchester usually says;--- It was short.
