With riveting action, gritty characters, and hard-hitting plots, Grant hooks the reader with striking page-turning reads.      


NAT Grant’s spy thriller RACE SERIES involves a multi-layered scheme of espionage to be played out over 4 volumes:



Montreal is one of NAT’s favourite cities and so she based her series there as a jumping off point for their international flavour. Native to Quebec, but proud of her Scottish heritage, NAT travels the globe with her husband and uses it to kick off the research for her novels. Central to her life are two cosseted cats, Della and Url.

Selected Bibliography


 Race Without Rules 

Man of mystery Karl Treiger has a past tracing back to the Nazi era. Based in Westmount, Quebec, Treiger encounters an inquisitive Scottish artist, Megan Brodie, who becomes determined to unearth Treiger’s secret. He leads her unwittingly into a sinister international plot set to explode across the Western World.

The Westmount Examiner described Race Without Rules as “…a spy thriller of intrigue with a plan for terrorism that is all too plausible… leaves the reader shaken long after the book is put down.”

The Canadian Writers’ Society raved: “high drama, moving at a wild, rakish pace.”

Aniko Koranyi-Bergman, president of the Canadian Writers’ Society, wrote: “The collision of cultures, the clash of agendas, the tangled web of conflicting viewpoints—all, are skillfully sifted…through the moral and ethical choices of the lead characters. Dynamic. Suspenseful. I love it as much as I did the first book.” (September 2005)
