DC Books is proud to announce the following news with regard to Acqua Sacra, Keith Henderson’s 2016 novel on construction industry corruption in Europe and in Quebec, and Net Worth, Kenneth Radu’s recent economy-minded collection of short stories. Henderson’s novel is based on the SNC-Lavalin scandal, now more than ever timely.

  • Both authors will be present at the AELAQ booth during Word on the Street (Toronto), Henderson from 11:30 – 12:15, Radu from 3:15 – 4:00 pm Sunday, September 22, 2019
  • Early next year, as part of the St. James Literary Society Program (Westmount, Tuesday, March 31, 2020), Keith Henderson will be speaking on “Fact and Fiction: The Making of a Political Roman à Clef ”

“Acqua Sacra is a compelling book, dealing with both personal and family issues, and more broadly political and commercial issues. Keith Henderson has created a pacey narrative written in the style of a good thriller, which takes in the harrowing effects of divorce, the feelings of failure and their effects on the family, along with Mafia involvement in the Canadian construction industry and all levels of Italian politics and commerce. It deals with corruption at every level and the difficulties of being an honest, caring individual in a world seemingly rotten to the core. An interesting, though sometimes worrying book for anyone who cares about our planet. I thoroughly enjoyed Acqua Sacra and do not hesitate to recommend it.”

— Charles Remington, Readers’ Favorite (5 Star Review), March, 2017
