Inspector Luc Vanier is back, and Montreal's Hochelaga district is in the throes of gentrification. Its drug dealers and prostitutes are disappearing, and Vanier, investigating the brutal death of one, suspects the neighbourhood cleanup may involve murdering the unwanted. The local Police Commander sees only declining crime rates and his improving career prospects, and is willing to go easy on a local militia group that's expanding its influence. When Vanier is suspended for brutality, he's on his own. He continues to probe the dark side of progress, while struggling to help his son, just back from Afghanistan and crippled by PTSD. As the threats against him mount, Vanier fights to prove his innocence and discover who really controls the streets. Have the government and police stepped back to allow the militia to impose order? Is the militia the price of order when governments run out of money?

a quick read, a nice break from books that require a more emotional investment, especially if you like crime fiction. I didn't like it as much as the first, but it was alright. You will love it if you have any connections to Montreal, as I do!

Peter Kirby's second Luc Vanier novel is even better than his first.
