    Deverell's powerful novel centers on the harrowing confrontation between a brilliant prosecutor on the edge of pesonal disaster, and his quarry, Dr. Au, a man whose bizarre and bloody acts are the ultimate expression of evil. Here are the people connected with Vancouver's criminal world - the prostitutes, pushers, hit-men, and the undercover police. In pursuit of survival in a world pervaded by corruption, they are motivated by their own private obsessions, and find themselves linked in unusual and unexpected ways.

    Story
    Would you listen to Needles again? Why?

    Needles makes me want to read other stories by William Deverell.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    This story captures a time and a place, Vancouver's east side in the late 1970's, and provides insights into a scourge that still haunts the city, the trafficking of heroin.


    Have you listened to any of Steve Scherf and Maggie Scherf ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, this is my first.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    There are many different kinds of pain.


    Any additional comments?

    This audiobook has great music and great production values.
