Hamilton, Ontario’s own Max Dexter and his easy-on-the-eyes assistant Isabel O’Brien are back in the second book of this post-WWII historical mystery series. Max’s artist friend, Roger Bruce, is arrested for murder. And while our plucky duo is tracking down the real killer, Hamilton mobsters take steps to discourage them.
As in A Private Man, the city itself continues to be a vital part of the action. And readers wondering if Max and Isabel might get together will be watching closely as the pair high-step their way through this quick-paced tale.
Winner of the Kerry Schooley Award 2015 presented by the Hamilton Arts Council.
