A Killing Winter, by Wayne Arthurson
Leo Deroches teetered on the brink of destruction throughout Fall from Grace, but in A Killing Winter, he falls and continues to fall to the end. I don't have first-hand knowledge, but I think what Arthurson has to say about gambling addiction is true. The book is also about native gangs, native politics, and tribal land development in Alberta. It's hard to imagine Leo coming back for more self-abuse, but Arthurson calls it a series. One can but hope.
