Bradshaw's latest mystery is set eight years after the Armistice of the First World War in Toronto...Strengthened by a strong cast of characters complete with bumbling fools, fascist sympathizers and communist agents, this book is a perfectly delightful and well-executed romp.

Synopsis

In the mid-1920s, Torontonians move to the beat of the Jazz Age and war is the furthest thing from their minds. Then a fatal grenade explosion breaks the rhythm. Police detective Paul Shenstone believes it was an attempted assassination and uncovers dangerous secrets about an illicit rearmament scheme that threatens world peace.
