What Readers Are Saying About "The Raid"
There’s money-laundering, election-rigging, sex and – of course – murder. A renegade RCMP officer uncovers all. If the justice system doesn’t get to the bottom of what was going on that day, The Raid is the next-best thing.

Merkley’s story starts at the same point as the news stories did ... [the raid of the BC Legislature]… but gets way more interesting. Novelists get to write the story reporters dream of.
Liz Pogue, Times Colonist Book Editor
Ken has perhaps created a new genre in literature, a sort of fictional/non-fiction. This provides the author with an opportunity to discuss and speculate on evolving real life dramas. It [The Raid] has all the juicy ingredients essential to a good novel.
