From the bestselling author of Old City Hall comes Robert Rotenberg’s third
intricate mystery set on the streets and in the courtrooms of Toronto.
Robert Rotenberg’s compelling tale Stray Bullets is the
story of a spontaneous shooting at a Toronto donut franchise. The firefight leaves a four-year-old boy dead, and a crucial eyewitness, an illegal alien,
vanishes into the night. Ari Greene, the officer in charge of the Tim Hortons
shooting, struggles to separate the facts of the case from the many conflicting
eyewitness accounts. How many shots were fired, and from how many guns? Which
witnesses—if any—are reliable? And how to go about tracking down the shooter,
who melted into the cold November darkness?
Greene soon finds that there are
people involved in the case with other agendas than solving the crime. He locks
horns first with Nancy Parish, a defense attorney for one of the suspects,
who’s clearly in over her head. Then he must do battle with Ralph
Armitage, an arrogant Crown Attorney who’s anxious to exploit the case to
further his own career. For his part, Greene only wants to bring a killer to
justice and give the grieving parents of the young victim some solace. Not as
easy as it sounds in the murky world of those who assign little value to human
life—and all too much to personal gain.
With grieving parents and a city hungry for justice, the
pressure is on to convict the man accused of this horrible crime. Against this
tidal wave of indignation, defense counsel Nancy Parish finds herself defending
her oldest and most difficult client. But does anyone know the whole story? Download and start listening now!
