Fall Guy

The Detective Barry Gilbert Mysteries

Book 2

Free sample

A police detective investigates a death in Toronto’s Chinatown in “a clever procedural about a murdered man with an enigmatic past” (Booklist).
 
When Detective Barry Gilbert is called into Chinatown to look into the death of Edgar Lau, he must piece together Edgar’s labyrinthine history—from his days as a Vietnamese refugee who made a deadly trek to China by boat, to his affair with a prominent member of Toronto’s city government, to his dealings with a Chinese drug baron. Throughout the investigation, damaging and sensitive questions are raised—questions somebody in Toronto’s police department doesn’t want answered.
 
It soon becomes clear to Gilbert that in addition to hunting down Edgar’s killer, he must fight police corruption as well . . .
 
From the author of Cold Comfort, nominated for the Arthur Ellis Award, Fall Guy is both a riveting police procedural and a journey across continents and cultures, and deep into an immigrant family’s struggle to survive against harrowing odds.
 
“A skillful storyteller  . . . Mackay does atmosphere and setting well, and his characters are full-bodied and believable.” —Booklist
 
“[A] great story.” —The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
