The thirteenth mystery featuring Detective Jack Willows and Claire Parker Harvey is finally out of prison, with a whole lot of living to do – and a burning desire to pull off a monstrous score that will save him from the workaday world. He also wants his old life back. But his wife, Kim, has been doing some living of her own. To supplement the returns from her tattoo business, she has taken on a little crime, in partnership with Harvey’s old friend, Matt Singh. In fact, they are planning a million-dollar diamond robbery when Matt is gunned down in a mall parking lot. This seems fortuitous for Harvey, but Kim has other plans. She’s now head-over-heels in lust with Sandy, a younger man with a very private life. Sandy seems equally smitten with the planned diamond heist. But to pull it off they need a getaway driver. Harvey doesn’t need to be asked twice. He still wants things the way they were and, to him, the only thing standing in his path is Sandy. Meanwhile, Willows and Parker, now married, are dealing with birth, parenthood – and other crucial matters.

A witty philosophical murder mystery with a charming twist: the crack detectives are sheep determined to discover who killed their beloved shepherd. On a hillside near the cozy Irish village of Glennkill, a flock of sheep gathers around their shepherd, George, whose body lies pinned to the ground with a spade. George has cared devotedly for the flock, even reading them books every night. Led by Miss Maple, the smartest sheep in Glennkill (and possibly the world), they set out to find George’s killer. The A-team of investigators includes Othello, the “bad-boy” black ram; Mopple the Whale, a Merino who eats a lot and remembers everything; and Zora, a pensive black-faced ewe with a weakness for abysses. Joined by other members of the richly talented flock, they engage in nightlong discussions about the crime, wild metaphysical speculations, and embark on reconnaissance missions into the village, where they encounter some likely suspects. Along the way, the sheep confront their own all-too-human struggles with guilt, misdeeds, and unrequited love. Funny, fresh, and endearing, it introduces a wonderful new breed of detectives to Canadian readers. From the Hardcover edition.

Ozzie believes he’s planned the perfect crime. Wealthy stock promoter Harold Wismer is having an affair with a woman named Melanie Martel. Ozzie and his buddy Dean will kidnap Harold as he leaves Melanie’s apartment, and then demand a five-million-dollar ransom from Harold’s loving wife, Joan. Harold is famous locally for his loud mouth, endless cigars, and banana-yellow suits. He can easily afford five million. The original Trampoline Man, he’s suffered numerous multi-million-dollar losses playing the market, and always bounced back. This is Ozzie’s second attempt at snatching a wealthy promoter. His first time out was a disaster – especially for his victim. Ozzie views the first kidnapping as a high-intensity learning experience. He’s a quick study. This time he’ll get it right. Or so he thinks. Unfortunately Ozzie is unaware that ancient-but-still-sharp-toothed mobster Jake Cappalletti also has a lively pecuniary interest in Harold. Ozzie’s young and quick. But Jake is old, and methodical. Vancouver police detectives Jack Willows and Claire Parker are assigned the task of investigating Harold’s sudden and violent disappearance. Willows balks. His son, Sean, has been critically wounded in a convenience-store holdup, and Willows, distraught, doesn’t want to abandon that case. But he is soon convinced that the two crimes are related, and the furiously paced hunt is on.

Fall Down Easy is the sixth hard-hitting, Vancouver-based crime novel featuring detectives Jack Willows and Claire Parker. Greg is a coke addict, weapons freak, professional heartbreaker, master of disguise – and bank robber. But his latest hold-up goes sour: there is a violent fight and a man is killed. Greg makes his escape with the victim’s briefcase, to find it full of not money, but computer print-outs. Willows and Parker are handed what rapidly becomes a hideously complex investigation. The dead man turns out to be a plainclothes Panamanian police officer, in Vancouver for unspecified reasons. It also proves impossible to build up any sort of profile of the chameleon-like killer…for what Willows and Parker can’t know is that the man they’re after is motivated by far more than a simple love of money. Riveting, fast-moving, at times blackly humorous, Fall Down Easy is another winner for Laurence Gough.
