A Private Man

“July, 1947. And hotter than hell in Hamilton.”

So begins Chris Laing’s intriguing novel about the exploits of Max Dexter, former RCMP officer. Max, recently discharged and limping from a serious war injury, returns to his hometown to run his own private detective agency. But he gets more than he bargained for when takes on a missing person case for a wealthy client. Soon more than the weather is making things hot for Max and his new assistant, Isabel O’Brien. They become involved with arson, art theft, murder and money laundering. The trail leads through the mansions of high society and along the gritty streets of Hamilton to a rip-roaring climax in Niagara Falls.

“There’s a secret ingredient added to the polished story, character and dialogue: Laing has made the local setting a fully-fledged character ... A Private Man is a top-shelf winner.” Don Graves in The Hamilton Spectator.

A Private Man was a Finalist for Best First Crime Novel, 2013 awarded by Crime Writers of Canada.

The Max Dexter Mystery Series includes: A Private Man (2012), A Deadly Venture (2014), A Family Matter (2017) and A Devious Dame (2019).
