"When Toronto's shadow city sprawls outwards with its vicious and encompassing criminal economy, all the local detectives can do is watch, grimace, and drink, sweeping up detritus left in the wake - dead hookers, corrupt cops, and people too slow or weak to keep up or too stupid to get out of the way. Detroit-born, projects-raised, former soldier Get feels right at home here, having returned from the business opportunities he sought in Iraq and Afghanistan. Selling guns to biker gangs and hiding in a veneer of respectability, he soon finds himself wavering because of stick-up girl Sunitha. She wants him to help her rob the bikers' gold bullion drug money and escape with her, swapping this life for another."--Publisher.

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.
