Legal-thriller fans who haven’t discovered the Crang series are in for a treat.
Vodka-sipping, jazz-loving Crang is a clever fellow who adds welcome humor to this sixth noir-light case.
Batten’s sardonic humor adds fun to this fast-paced whodunit that will keep readers guessing until the final showdown.
Our smart-mouthed lawyer moves through Toronto with style and grace, with amusing stumbles and detours along the way.
Flame’s blackmail case has lots of entertaining, smart twists as it gnarls its way to resolution. It’s Batten’s career-long confidence and ease with words and their pleasures, though, that make Keeper of the Flame such a trustworthy read, from first page to last.
