In Canadian author Blair's atmospheric third mystery to feature commercial photographer Tom McCall (after 2006's Overexposed
), McCall and his three co-workers are juggling assignments while preparing to move to a new location in the trendy Granville Island section of Vancouver. Business partner Bobbi Brooks switches with McCall to shoot photos of the Wonderlust
, a boat in the Broker's Bay Marina that owner Anna Waverley wants to sell. A brutal attack at the boat leaves Bobbi comatose and McCall with a mystery: his original customer wasn't the real Anna Waverley and the Waverleys didn't own the boat. A con artist, a gallery owner, a mysterious enforcer and a gigantic homeless man are all pieces of the jigsaw puzzle McCall needs to put together before the casualty list grows much longer. McCall is no challenger to professional sleuths, but he's an entertaining and intrepid amateur with a penchant for landing himself and his friends in murderous situations. (Mar.)
