Distinctly Canadian, capturing what its like to live in a town close to the USA border... And the conflicts of living a double life, and entertaining read.

This was a fun book for me, it involved crime, some humor, and took place in the City of Windsor where I completed my undergraduate degree (roughly the same time that this story took place). I thought the writing was exceptional and I liked the thoughts of the main character on relationships. Where the book struggled in my opinion was the plausibility of the main character and how successful he was in his illicit business -hence, not giving it 5 stars.

Highly recommended!
