Description

Private investigator Dan Sharp finds himself caught up in a political murder.

When the husband of a Queen’s Park aide runs off to escape his gambling debts, private investigator Dan Sharp is hired to track him down. As the city’s political landscape verges on the bizarre — with a crack-using mayor and a major scandal looming — Dan finds himself pitted against a mysterious figure known for making or breaking the reputations of upcoming politicians. It’s not until a body turns up on his doorstep that Dan realizes he’s being punished for sticking his nose into dirty politics. It’s left to him to catch the killer and prove his own innocence.

Editorial Reviews

Turns Canadian politics into thriller material … Readers who enjoy political intrigue will want to give this a look.

— Publishers Weekly

I enjoyed the hell out of this novel. I think it’s the best Dan Sharp mystery to date!

— Jon Michaelsen, author of Pretty Boy Dead

I never thought Queen’s Park could provide such a wonderfully dangerous playground for murder and mayhem, but Jeffrey Round has done it again and kept me up until the wee hours wondering if Dan Sharp will find his killer and survive his own personal mayhem.

— Sheila McCarthy, actor, writer, director

A good, solid mystery, and a timely one.

— Literary Treats (blog)

A sharp-witted mystery rife with political drama.

— Sukasa Reads

Another deftly crafted novel by a master of the genre, The God Game is the fifth title in author Jeffrey Round's outstanding Dan Sharp Mystery series.

— Midwest Book Review

A slick, intelligent mystery that allows time for characters and settings to breathe deeply. Round proves once again that he is a master of detail. His skilful narration and dialogue insist the reader be present, as Dan follows a tortuous trail of clues through Toronto neighbourhoods and beyond. Whether Dan is conversing with his son, fighting an attacker, or battling his personal demons, Round manages to infuse each page with deep humanity.

— Liz Bugg, author of the Calli Barnow series
