About the book:
"July, 1947. And hotter than hell in Hamilton." So begins Chris Laing's novel about the exploits of Max Dexter, former RCMP officer. Max, an army veteran recently discharged and limping from a serious war injury, returns to his hometown to open his own private detective agency. But he gets more than he bargained for when he takes on a missing person case for an affluent new client. Soon more than the weather is making things hot for Max and his comely new assistant, Isabel O'Brien. They become involved with arson, art theft, murder and money laundering. The trail leads through the mansions of high society and along the gritty streets of Hamilton to a rip-roaring climax in Niagara Falls.

I love a good historical mystery novel so for me A Private Man hit the spot.” – Brian Henry
