When Detective Ari Greene was charged with the murder of the woman he loved, he stopped at nothing to clear his name and uncover the real killer. After his acquittal, Greene fled to London to get away from it all, but now he's back. And he's not alone--with Greene is his twenty-year-old daughter, Alison. The child he never knew he had. Determined to leave his life as a cop behind him, Greene gets a job on a construction site for one of Toronto's many new condos. It seems he has finally found peace as he settles into a new career and new role as father, helping Alison adjust to life in Canada. But when Greene stumbles upon the corpse of hated developer Livingston Fox, he is plunged back into the life he tried so hard to leave behind. As the body count rises, Greene is forced into a reluctant reconciliation with his former protégé, Daniel Kennicott. The pair must delve into the tight-knit world of downtown development, navigating tangled loyalties, unexpected corruption and family secrets, some of which are closer to home than Greene could have ever imagined. In a world where the stakes are high and the profits are even higher, Greene and Kennicott race against the clock as they follow the trail of blood and money to its shocking end.

A good read with some fine plot twists. I did not like the newly discovered 20 year old daughter character with her 'British accent' waved under my nose at every turn. She had the emotional maturity of a 14 year old. I do like the mix of protagonists from novel to novel and the Toronto setting in a burgeoning condo market provided some interesting insights into the underpinnings of the mega investment construction world.
