If Looks Could Kill was Michael Blair’s first mystery, published in March 2001 by McClelland & Stewart after being shortlisted (in manuscript and under a different title) for the 1999 Chapters/ Robertson Davies Prize. It was also shortlisted for the 2001 Quebec Writers’ Federation First Book Award. Since then, Blair has written four books for Dundurn Press: A Hard Winter Rain (2004), Overexposed (2006), The Dells, (2007), and his latest, Depth of Field, which was released in February 2009. To support his writing habit, he’s held a wide variety of jobs. Since 1994 he has been a freelance technical writer/editor. He lives in Montreal but if you can’t make it there, you can visit him at www.michaelblair.ca.
