It is the heat of summer in downtown Toronto, and Homicide Detective Harry Stark is called in to investigate the murder of a jewel courier who was formerly a soldier in the Israeli army. At the same time, a copycat murder of a young woman is being looked into by Stark's lover, Carol. This is a wonderful whodunit by a gifted mystery writer, and it provides a gritty, realistic picture of Toronto and its downtown and east-end denizens.
