Two opposing and mutually-exclusive lives meet for just a moment at a time and in a place where one of them shouldn't be. The fallout of this moment leaves a woman on the run from Organized Crime, and takes readers on a frantic plunge into the dark streets and back alleys of a richly-described criminal underworld. Inspired by actual events, this shocking and terror-filled crime fiction plays out against a backdrop of bloody gang violence that spilled across Quebec in the 1990's - the Quebec Biker War. Novelist J. Kilburn brings readers to the dark side of seedy streets in this international tale of adventure, terror, and crime set in Montreal.

“Heaven’s Door” is a heart-stopping tale of good versus evil. Readers should note that this novel begins with grotesque physical violence leading to Trooper Sutton’s murder. It also has sexual and domestic violence, drug use and foul language. It’s not a story for the faint of heart... Overall, this was an interesting, albeit violent, tale of the inner workings of the Topdogs gang and the lengths to which they will go to protect one another and the gang."
Organized crime. An undercover police officer. A murder. An accidental witness. These are the elements of a unique story about love, loss, adventure, hope, and terror: Heaven's Door, a Novel by J. Kilburn. Part noir crime novel, part historical fiction, part suspense-thriller, and part bad-ass biker story, this genre-busting book introduces the fictional TOPDOGS Motorcycle club and plunges readers into a richly-described Organized Crime underworld set in a major port city.
Heaven's Door brings multiple characters to life in an international tale of crime, love, desperation, and consequence. Check out this well-researched book about another world - the Underworld that exists around, among, and even sometimes within each of us.

Follow the fictional TOPDOGS Motorcycle Club as they ride through Montreal's underworld. Read about the club, its members, their victims, and the police officer who goes undercover to try to infiltrate and investigate the club. Read about how the Quebec Chapter of the club got its start; how some fun-seeking motorcycle enthusiasts lost themselves to the seductive, yet dangerous world of gang violence and organized crime. Strut on the sidewalks of Montreal with high-rolling underworld magnates while their minions flit in and out of back alleys in service of dark needs, big money, and ruthless territorial competition.
