Review

Fans of former New York Daily News crime reporter and BCTV commentator
Mike McCardell’s Chasing the Story God are in for a treat. In this
sequel, McCardell continues to entertain with his exceptional insights
into seemingly mundane events and characters. His keen reporter’s eye
extracts the very essence of a story and his writer’s skill makes that
essence meaningful and memorable. In a book that is structured as a
series of real-life vignettes (many of which elicit smiles), he
reminisces about his childhood and adult years in New York City and his
completely different life in British Columbia. This charming and
endearing book confirms his reputation as a first-class reporter.
