Foe is the first novel we’ve read by Canadian author Iain Reid. From the first page we were instantly drawn in and literally could not put the book down until we found out what happened to Junior and Hen. Reid is a master of suspense building the novel and the characters along the way. We are drawn into Junior and Hen’s story and begin to wonder what Terrance really has in store for Junior.
