In bestselling Deverell s latest hilarious mystery, Arthur Beauchamp moves to Ottawa, and all hell breaks loose
Arthur Beauchamp has followed his wife, the leader and first elected member of the Green Party, to Ottawa. But he hates it there: the cold, the politics, and his place in his wife s shadow. So when a delegation of government officials from Bhashyistan is blown sky high on Bronson Avenue and the shares of a Calgary-based oil company promptly drop like a stone, Arthur is only too happy to jump to the defence of the missing suspected assassin.
Deverell s latest Arthur Beauchamp novel cranks the wily old lawyer s adventures up several notches, and then some. It s wildly imaginative, utterly Canadian, and irresistibly funny.
