Description

While trying to help those evicted from the Lucky Strike, a low-rent hotel in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside, Cole Blackwater and his best friend Denman Scott discover that homeless people in the area are disappearing without a trace. Working with news reporter Nancy Webber and street nurse Juliet Rose to solve the missing persons case, Cole and Denman venture into the dark corners of the city's underworld. Soon they find themselves in the midst of a dangerous cabal of city officials, high-ranking cops, condo developers, and crime bosses.

 

Tackling the real big-city issues of housing shortages, political corruption, and murder, The Vanishing Track is the third Cole Blackwater Mystery and the most compelling yet.

 

"The best in the Cole Blackwater series." —The Globe and Mail

 

"A brutally honest look at life on Vancouver's Downtown Eastside. A really great read." —Senator Larry Campbell, co-author of A Thousand Dreams

Editorial Reviews

[The] best in the Cole Blackwater series. —The Globe and Mail


Even though the source material lends itself to preaching and moralizing, Legault wisely sticks to telling a good story. The Vanishing Track made me want to track down the first two Cole Blackwater books and, even better, has me curious about what's next for him and his friends. —National Post


A brutally honest look at life on Vancouver's Downtown Eastside. A really great read. —Senator Larry Campbell, co-author of A Thousand Dreams


The soul of The Vanishing Track is in the dialogue: it shapes the raw tension, exposes the layers of greed and cover-up . . . The portrayal is clear; the action sharp and brutal . . . The Cole Blackwater stories are among the most riveting today, and The Vanishing Track is the best yet in this intensely dramatic series. —The Hamilton Spectator
