    Another combustible story in the series that features Homicide Detectives Jack Willows and Claire Parker.Ross Larson has just been released from prison While inside, he made friends with another inmate, Garrett, who died from cancer Garrett and another friend got away with two hundred thousand dollars That money has never been recovered.Ross decides he can go after the money but at what risk returning to prison Meanwhile, a local police has been murdered in a most gristly way Was his unusual sexual appetite the cause of his demise Or is this somehow tied to another crime Following Willows and Parker following clues makes this one a terrific police procedural Some cases are solved quickly, while others seem to linger on forever Those are the ones that play havoc with cops minds Willows seems to be the emotional one in his ...

    A crime procedural series set in Vancouver This is the ninth and I have read the previous eight in order This book revisits an armoured car robbery in book 4 where the lot wasn t recovered.One thief died at the scene the other died of natural causes while in prison.This book tells the story of Ross who shared a cell with one of the robbers and therefore everyone believes he knows where the money went and remains.As is the authors style chapters alternate between Ross s release and time on probation with the investigations Willows Parker undertake.In the course of the book these stories come together to form an interesting and surprising finale.I like in part the old fashioned nature of these stories This one was first published 20 years ago Gough has a nice way with language and dialogue where humour offsets some of the darker aspects of any murder scene.I still question the need for details of every car journey and change of lights but it is a regular in these novels.The c...
