Publisher's Summary

A rich man and a poor man are found dead of gunshot wounds outside a seedy bar on Barrington Street. The police declare it a murder-suicide, but bluesman/lawyer Monty Collins suspects it's a double murder. Helped by his friend, Father Brennan Burke, and hindered by his femme fatale law partner, Felicia Morgan, Monty explores the dark side of Halifax society: hookers, drug addicts, boozers, gamblers and people desperate to cover up a series of parties that got way out of hand. A threat of blackmail, and turmoil with his estranged wife Maura, have Monty singing the blues, lashing out at his closest friends, and spending far too much time in the bars of Halifax.

The low down and dirty for poor ol' Monty

Monty's world seems to be sliding into skid row in this outing for Collins and Burke, in more ways than one! His latest case takes him to the seedier side of Halifax life and his personal life is going from bad to worse. He even manages to put the friendship he values the most on the line with his descent into a troubled and troubling time in his life, that with Fr Brennan Burke. Two deaths which initially seem like a murder-suicide present Monty with more questions than answers and some circumstances which his nose for the truth just will not let go. When he gets to the bottom of the murky pond, the outcome is one which even he could not have predicted, both personally and professionally. This is the darkest of the Collins-Burke series, but for all that it is still a cracking story. The icing on the cake for all these books is the narration by Christian Rummel. He does a superb job. It's no wonder there are literally dozens of books out there narrated by him, he is awesome.
