A compelling story that spirals back to Vancouver in the early 60s, when conservative young Arthur encounters not only the beginnings of alternative culture (coffee houses, a scratchy-voiced young busker named Dylan) but the deep and fiercely intelligent rage of a young First Nations man named Gabriel Swift, who will haunt Arthur's life. Finally, Arthur might be able to face the truth of this long-past case, and right an old wrong.

The portrayal of the Vancouver legal world brought memories of the old courthouse and those who toiled in the vineyards of the judicial system to life. Mr. Deverell has crafted a fascinating blend of intrigue, humor, perplexing current social issues which raise his central character to his finest performance. Ever. A great read which is thought provoking without preaching. I congratulate the author enough to put my name to this review and recommend the novel.

This is Deverell's best book yet. Steve Sherf did a great job in the audio version. The story had twists and turns and spans over five decades until the mystery is solved. Beacham is a lovable, young attorney who makes bad choices in regards to his social life (women and alcohol aren't his friends). I used this book as my incentive to take my daily walk and it served its purpose, as I looked forward to losing myself in the drama as I trudged through sub zero temperatures in a cold Wisconsin December. My only regret for this book was that Sherf's sister was absent and I missed her voice! I am looking forward to Deverell's next book.

Before you open this book, get comfortable.
Go into the den, stoke the fire and enjoy some Sunday morning opera.
I'll See You in My Dreams is like a comfortable cardigan: it envelops you in a truly classic style making you want to read on and on.
In this day of instant gratification, everyone seems to want quick, action-packed plots.
Not so here. William Deverell takes you on a journey that, on one hand, touches so many bases but, on the other hand lets you truly feel the settings and the characters. I had a true sense of travelling British Columbia as the story evolves.
What keeps the reader interested is the evolution of the Characters: we sense major life problems ahead for Arthur Beauchamp (Beecham!)... and yet, the author does not throw it in your face.
You explore a man's life, his failings and his successes through the window of a case the implications of which span decades.
That being said, we are brought to places that we may not know anything about: the world of First Nations, Human Rights abuses and Residential Schools.
The book is also complex: it travels back and forth between the near present and the events that unfolded. As readers, we are challenged. We must figure things out by inference and, in my opinion, this is what makes the story so readable.
The dénouement is wonderfully crafted but it is the journey that holds the readers' attention.
William Deverell has written a book that I would recommend to anyone.

This audiobook is narrated by Steve Scherf. He does a good job. This book is slow and has no real tension. Scherf can do little more than read this book. I didn't care about any of the characters, I didn't care about the Canadian legal system. The story about a young lawyers lifetime of guilt over pleading a not guilty native Indian guilty for murder has no emotion. 

My research into this author shows this to be the 5th of 6 books in the Authur Beauchamp series. I reviewed a book Mecca also written by this Canadian Author. I had some of the same complaints about that book but it was far better than this book.

I may be kinder if I had known the characters but I am not sure it would help. It took me a long time to listen to this very long audiobook. The only incentive I had to finish the book is the fact that I received this from a publisher who asked for my honest review. I would like give the narrator Steve Scherf another chance with better material. 

This book was received for an honest review.

I loved this book. It's funny and serious in Deverall's wonderful way. He is able to write from the POV of a shy, awkward young lawyer just beginning his career as well as a crusty old curmudgeon at the end of that career. The previous review was mean-sprited and vendictive and I wonder what the reviewer has against Deverell personally. It's okay not to like a book. It's not okay to spoil it for anyone else.

A very frustrating book! Not believable at all. I kept reading hoping Deverell would redeem himself. Allow me to spoil the ending for you! The character who was murdered turns out not even to be dead! The person accused of his murder, Gabriel Swift, deserved the death sentence for being such a monumental bore!
