1949: Milne Lowell, a Canadian writer, moves to London from Montreal to edit a magazine dedicated to cultural freedom. His colleagues include Marguerite Allard, a French-Canadian anarchist, Eric Felmore, an American novelist, and Carson Ward, a British poet.

Initially, the group is enthusiastic about the championship of freedom; however, uncertainty grows as unsettling and surprising encounters begin to unfold and the peripheral violence of the Cold War closes in.

Foxhunt is an atmospheric exploration of passivity, loyalty, and literature in times of political upheaval. Firmly entrenched in the literary milieu of the era, it carries the reader through shell-shocked streets with suspense and intrigue.

Luke Francis Beirne was born in Ireland in 1995 and grew up in Western Canada. He lives in Saint John, New Brunswick. He has ghostwritten more than a dozen genre novels. His writing has appeared in outlets such as Honest Ulsterman, Hamilton Arts & Letters, and Strange Horizons, including the award-winning story “Models.” He also holds a Master’s in Cultural Studies & Critical Theory from McMaster University. Foxhunt is his first novel.
