I enjoyed this story very much. Having read Fall From Grace, it was interesting to how Leo's life has changed (or not changed in some cases). The story moves along at a quick pace and I will probably never look at a cheese grater again in the same way. The ending is quite a cliffhanger and I am anxiously waiting to find out what happens next for Leo.

It was a decent read, but I didn't enjoy this as much as the first Leo Desroches book. It was difficult to to credit that an active crime-beat journalist in Edmonton who'd spent time on the streets would have thought Native gangs were a myth, and there were other plot elements that didn't jive. Would have been interesting to see the murder from a police perspective, since autopsy results would have been quite revealing. Appears to be set in some kind of alternate-world Edmonton where the Cecil Hotel was never demolished, since setting is otherwise present-day.
