A journalist known for his investigations into organized crime, Lee Lamothe travels widely in Asia and Europe from his base in Toronto.

Lee Lamothe is the author of three novels: Free Form Jazz, The Finger's Twist and The Last Thief, as well as several non-fiction books, including the bestsellers The Sixth Family: The Collapse of the New York Mafia and The Rise of Vito Rizzuto and Bloodlines: The Rise and Fall of Mafia's Royal Family.

From the Free Press review of The Finger’s Twist:

“...Enter Lee Lamothe. Never heard of him? Maybe not, unless you’re a true-crime fan and have come across his several Mafia tracts, most recently The Sixth Family. Well, this Toronto journalist, in only his second swing at the fiction bat after 2003’s The Last Thief, has knocked one out of the Rogers Centre.
In The Finger’s Twist, he’s penned not only the best Canadian mystery/suspense release of the year, but a yarn light-years beyond anything the American stars have produced.”

Have a great day. How can you miss - you're in Winnipeg!
