A Doctor Annick Boudreau Mystery #2
An exciting second installment in the Doctor Annick Boudreau Mystery Series, the endearing and unflappable Dr. Boudreau returns in this complex and nuanced portrait of psychology and a city. When Dr. Boudreau is contacted by the Vancouver Police and informed that her patient Danielle has been reported missing and there's a suicide note, the psychologist is shaken. Danielle, who was being treated for a major depressive episode, had been doing well--talking about her new relationship and the contract she just completed as a speechwriter for a bike-riding politician's successful mayoral campaign. Dr. Boudreau is, once again, on a mission to discover what really happened and joins forces with Danielle's estranged father, Ivor, a former radical journalist turned right-wing blogger. Along the way, the realpolitik is illuminated in a clash over the Knight Street trucking route, protected by the Satan's Hammer Motorcycle Club, who has a strong presence on the waterfront and refuse to relinquish the port traffic to the suburbs. Discover the clash and charisma of a city embroiled in politics in this twisting and turning story. Charles Demers renders a divisive cityscape entangled in questions of ownership and change--who owns the city and who has the right to change it--with humour, edge and compassion, revealing the intricacies of a metropolis on the verge of myriad transformations.
