Kevin Brace, Canada's most famous radio personality, stands in the door
of his luxury condominium, hands covered in blood, and announces
to his newspaper delivery man: "I killed her." His wife lies dead in
the bathtub, fatally stabbed.

It would appear to be an open-and-shut case.

The trouble is, Brace refuses to talk to anyone -- including his own lawyer --
after muttering those incriminating words. With the discovery that the
victim was actually a self-destructive alcoholic, the appearance of
strange fingerprints at the crime scene, and a revealing courtroom crossexamination,
the seemingly simple case takes on all the complexities of a
hotly contested murder trial. Meantime, much to everyone's surprise, the
Leafs are making an unlikely run for the Stanley Cup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Go Jays! A long-time fan of the Blue Jays, it was delightful to read once again of their victory in Rotenberg's Old City Hall. He weaves a very interesting and suspenseful story set within the mystique of Toronto. The book so captivated me that I couldn't stop reading. Every character has such a well-written personality that almost all of them have become friends. I can't wait to read Rotenberg's next book!

Editorial Reviews

Breathtaking...a tightly woven spiderweb of plot and a rich cast of characters make this a truly gripping read.... Robert Rotenberg does for Toronto what Ian Rankin does for Edinburgh." -- Jeffery Deaver
