Welcome to my author website. Here you will find information and news about my first novel, The Concrete Vineyard.

“This urban planning thriller carves out its own genre.”

The Concrete Vineyard is many things; it is a mystery/detective novel; it is a journey through the quaint but growing historical town of Niagara-on-the-Lake; and it is a statement on urban and rural planning and the importance of sustainable, well-designed communities.

“a page-turning, fascinating and inventive mystery you won’t want to miss”

It’s an innovative idea to focus a murder mystery upon the nefarious twists and turns that take place within local government planning/politics, and author Cam Lang creates just such a debut novel in THE CONCRETE VINEYARD with aplomb.

The War of 1812 and Canada’s role in it are important driving forces in the plot. The twists and turns in the storyline keep the readers glued to the pages. Cam Lang presents us with much more than just a regular mystery novel. For those who wish to know more about the historical backdrop of Canada without delving into the thick history books, this is a must-read.
