Fall Guy: A Detective Barry Gilbert Mystery by Scott Mackay

"[A] great story." -The Globe and Mail

"A clever procedural ... a skillful storyteller ... Mackay does atmosphere and setting well, and his characters are full-bodied and believable."-Booklist

Detective Barry Gilbert is called into Toronto's Chinatown to investigate the death of Edgar Lau, a man whose history and connections take the detective on a ride across continents and cultures, and deep into an immigrant family's struggle to survive against harrowing odds.

Gilbert 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-a fight that could threaten the department's stability and future. This tale of murder and misdoing, family and betrayal, is a riveting police procedural by a masterful mystery author.
