"Charlie Tate, muscle-bound unlicensed PI and failed investigative journalist, has always been on the wrong side of the tracks. Elodie Gray, poised and blond blue-blood, is his super-sleuth, wheelchair bound wife. Together, they are an unstoppable, no-nonsense crime-fighting team who trive on bringing down wealthy drips trying to get away with murder - literally. As Charilie and Elodie go about their business of recovering client's money from crooks, young protestors wage war on the provincial legislature. When the teen sister of Elodie's wealthy family friends is arrested for planting a bomb. Elodie is compelled to help. Charile resists joining the fray until his own daughters are arrested and he's forced to dive into the action."--Back cover.

I did like the book. But despite this, it is full of contradictions. And, so to speak, "positive" heroes are not so "positive" and their actions sometimes, cause, at least, disapproval. And Charlie somehow is unconvincing: how come he turned out to be so smart and insightful? And the idea - anything and everything in this life – is "buy-sell". A surprising similarity of names of fictional politicians, condemned by the author, or rather, by the hero of the book, with the actually existing Toronto’s management. From my point of view - this is not a mystery detective novel, how they are trying to present the book, but a some kind of fictional or based on reality "document”, accusing the entire political, police, legal, etc. Top of Toronto. It is shown that the journalism doesn’t have so much: - if you want to save your job – be quiet. Bad feeling from described the opinion of super-rich residents of Toronto about the rest - as they call the rest - stupid peasants. If this is really how it is – it is disgusting and sad.
