"Vernard '-Get' McGetty is back from serving in Afghanistan, back dealing drugs in Detroit and looking to move up with his buddy JT, a guy he met in Kandahar who also happens to be the leader of the Saints of Hell - a notorious Ontario biker gang currently in the process of taking over all North of the border drug traffic. Commuting weekly across the line into the center of JT's high flying empire, Get hooks up with Sunitha, a decidedly independent woman who's gone from working seedy massage parlors to robbing them at gunpoint - and has dreams of a much bigger score: taking the Saints for the millions they have stashed in gold bars. Meanwhile, the Toronto cops have the Saints under a microscope. Detectives Price and McKeon are getting nowhere with a double drive-by killing on the Gardiner Expressway - a husband and wife returning from a swingers party - and the investigation keeps leading back to the Saints."--p. [2] of cover.

Only read about 30 pages. Poor character development, erratic plot, excessive references to Toronto details make it sound very immature.

This seems to be the US edition of McFetridge's book "Swap" (as it was named in Canada). Same book, different titles.

Good, solid Canadian crime writing from John McFetridge-- the sequel to Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere. Toronto noir! I really enjoyed it, although I would characterize it as less a mystery and more a thriller ABOUT a mystery (if you know what I mean). Fun stuff though.
