Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

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.)

Format: Paperback
Commercial photographer Tom McCall is horrified to learn that his business partner, Bobbi, has been badly beaten and left for dead at one of Vancouver's Granville Island marinas. Tom's worries deepen, however, when he realizes that Bobbi's attacker might not be done with her. To find answers and appease his guilt for letting Bobbi do an evening job alone, McCall asks questions that soon wind up jeopardizing his own safety.

Depth of Field is a well written, carefully plotted whodunnit containing vivid descriptions of Vancouver's Granville Island area. Since the protagonist is an amateur sleuth, the author wisely avoided chase-`em-down confrontations, although there were sleuthing mistakes at crucial times. There is plenty of dialogue and a solid, methodical pace that leads to a suspenseful climax. If you like contemporary whodunnits and photography, then you'll enjoy this one.
