Review Job Patstone

The latest novel in Haugland’s Ty Davis mystery series has all the ingredients of a good story, including biker gang violence, suspicious murders and a romantic relationship.

The story plays out in and around Montréal, with connections to Mafia bosses in New York City and Vancouver.

Haugland, a former news broadcaster, lays on the intrigue in the third book in the series as if he were still behind the news desk of a Montréal TV station, just like the book’s main character, Ty Davis.

When drug dealers and gang leaders start disappearing, Ty follows police tips and leads from his own informants and keeps reporting the latest developments to his viewers on the nightly news.

A trail of burnt bodies and shootouts at Mafia boss funerals slowly leads to several gangs who are looking to take over the international drug trade in Eastern Canada, without caring who they kill or injure in the process. They force national and international police co-operation to come into play as the story develops.

Throughout the narrative, we follow the movements of Ty’s elderly mother, who moves from her quiet apartment in Florida back to Montréal, providing a tranquil counterpoint to the violent main action.
