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.

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.

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.

Vancouver’s streets are awash with unusually pure heroin. Addicts are dying like flies, but in this port city at the far end of the continent, junkies are a dime a baker’s dozen, and nobody’s counting. Then several dealers join the parade of the newly dead – and all of them worked for ancient crime kingpin Jake Cappalletti. The cops sniff a pattern. Then there’s April. She was lap-dancing when she met Wayne. He swept her off her feet at the end of her shift, just as soon as he’d finished dumping her parasitic ex-boyfriend into the trunk of his Caddy. Part of Wayne’s appeal is his raw ambition. He intends to replace Jake. April wants to be a contributing factor in her new man’s climb to the top. When the killing stops, Wayne’s going to need a fall guy, somebody to play multiple-murderer-for-a-day. So April kidnaps Lewis, a semi-successful con artist, and teaches him some very bad habits. Wayne’s so busy with murder and mayhem that he neglects April, and pretty soon she starts to believe she might be falling in love with Lewis. But, as usual, she could be wrong. Meanwhile, as the homicide squad engages in an intensive hunt for the most prolific killer in the city’s history, police detectives Jack Willows and Claire Parker have other – more personal – concerns. Willows, finally divorced, is free to marry Parker. But sometimes freedom’s just another word for plenty left to lose. Claire wants children; Jack already has two. As the investigation heats up, Willows believes that he and Parker won’t have time to spare for nagging domestic issues. Like April, he could be wrong.
