About Face

A college student goes missing in the Annapolis Valley. The further the police and criminologist Ian Wallace look, the more things turn out not to be as they had seemed.

About Face is a mix of police procedural, thriller, and social commentary, with a bit of farce and romance thrown in.

  • Reviews

    A gritty read full of interesting characters and plot twists in an intricate game of ‘cat and mouse’ to catch a killer.
    - J E Friend, author of Design of Deception

    The most engaging first person voice I’ve ever met in detective fiction. Ian Wallace is an academic egghead who overthinks almost every element of everyday life. Even his approach to his pizza slice is fraught with sociological insight. This makes him a most unusual gumshoe.
    - Susan Haley, author of A Nest of Singing Birds and Getting Married in Buffalo Jump

    Tony Thomson has spun a page-turning police mystery that will have you rooting for all the characters—good and bad—until the very end.  
    - Laura Churchill Duke, author of Rooted in Deception

    A compelling tale...taut and suspenseful, with three-dimensional characters and riveting dialogue, this is a must-read for mystery lovers. You’ll be guessing right to the very end.
    - Vernon Oickle, author of Six Crows Gold
