Summary    

new_visual_150413Rebus is back on the force, albeit with a demotion and a chip on his shoulder. A 30-year-old case is being reopened, and Rebus’s team from back then is suspected of foul play. With Malcolm Fox as the investigating officer is the past and present about to collide in a shocking and murderous fashion? And does Rebus have anything to hide? His colleagues back then called themselves ‘The Saints’, and swore a bond on something called ‘the Shadow Bible’. But times have changed and the crimes of the past may not stay hidden much longer, especially with a referendum on Scottish independence just around the corner. Who are the saints and who the sinners? And can the one ever become the other?

"Perfect Youth is a valuable and accessible addition to the study of punk in general, and to Canada's place within it." - Stephanie Hart, Quill & Quire

"Sutherland has brought the movement together with a clarity and intimacy never achieved before, and for its moments of guilelessness and raw delight, reveals the value of a scene that self-deprecates as often as it’s been dismissed." - Natalie Zina Walschots, The National Post

"Perfect Youth documents the undocumented, the unloved, the unwashed, and the foul-smelling glory of Canadian punk in its embryonic years." - Gillian McCain, co-author of Please Kill Me: The Uncensored Oral History of Punk

"Sam Sutherland's loving tribute to the True North Strong and Free punk daze explodes through the pages with a riveting blend of old-school insight and 21st Century analysis. Perfect Youth indeed!" - Steven Blush, author/filmmaker, American Hardcore

"A fascinating, necessary story written buoyantly and well, and with a whole lotta vomit." - Dave Bidini, musician and author of Writing Gordon Lightfoot
