After what happened in PI Jonah Geller’s last case, Boston Cream, Jonah can’t show his face in the U.S. again. Which is fine with him. He’s got a new job in Montreal, one of the world’s most colourful and downright scandalous cities. An old friend has been brutally murdered there and the police investigation is stalled. With an election looming and political tensions seething, Jonah and former hit man Dante Ryan have to battle religious fanatics, gun runners and a twisted political dynasty to get to the truth.
Buffalo Jump and High Chicago, Howard Shrier’s first two books, won the Arthur Ellis award for good reason: Shrier blends humour, action and heart like no other writer. And as a native of Montreal, Shrier brings the city to life in all its grit and glamour.
