Overall, this was really good. Like the first book in this series, this is sort of positioned halfway between a typical "cozy" mystery (a term I really can't stand) and a more straight thriller. It has the same gentle humor and quirkiness you would find in the first group, but Edmondson is not ashamed to put the more realistic aspects of life (sex, drugs, and the occasional f-bomb) right where you would expect to find them in real life (Jarvis street, Toronto, in this case).

Unlike with the first book, I found the ending here to be a little disappointing (view spoiler). I also wasn't a fan of the occasional perspective changes, but it didn't bother me as much as it could have.

Still, this is a good book and an interesting story even beyond the mystery.

I received this free through Goodreads First Reads (thanks!).
