Giles Blunt

Giles Blunt is a Canadian novelist and screenwriter. He grew up in North Bay, Ontario, a small city similar to the Algonquin Bay of his John Cardinal novels. After studying English literature at the University of Toronto, he moved to New York City to study film at NYU and lived there for the next twenty years, before moving back to Toronto.

The Cardinal novels have been published in more than a dozen languages; the first in the series, Forty Words for Sorrow, won the British Crime Writers Silver Dagger award, and the second, The Delicate Storm, won the Crime Writers of Canada Arthur Ellis award for best novel, as did the sixth, Until the Night.
