Toronto Hold-Up Squad Detective Charlie McKelvey returns in this excellent sequel to Forrest’s first novel, The Weight of Stones. McKelvey is retired, recovering from investigating his son’s death. He’s asked to look into the disappearance of a recent immigrant from Bosnia. McKelvey soon finds himself the prime suspect in a murder. There’s a solid plot and excellent use of Toronto’s famed ethnic diversity, plus a side trip into the fragmented history of the Balkans.
