Charlie Tate and Elodie Gray make a striking couple. Charlie is a shaven-headed weightlifter who has worked as a seaman, carnival huckster and hustler and now earns his keep as an unlicensed private investigator specializing in extricating clients' money from thieves. Elodie Gray comes from money-lot's of money. An accident when she was a teen confined her to a wheelchair, so she does the inside work-using her computer knowledge to find people who want to remain hidden.In The Finger's Twist, Charles and Elodie are hired to investigate a bombing attempt at the Ontario legislature, purportedly committed by an anarchist group called The Black Bloc. While the city drops into paranoia fuelled by the police and the mayor, Charlie and Elodie try to keep the black sheep daughter of a prominent family from a certain prison sentence.The Finger's Twist is more than a whodunit-it's the story of a romantic relationship that's constantly in jeopardy from within and without.

I did like the book. But despite this, it is full of contradictions. And, so to speak, "positive" heroes are not so "positive" and their actions sometimes, cause, at least, disapproval. And Charlie somehow is unconvincing: how come he turned out to be so smart and insightful? And the idea - anything and everything in this life – is "buy-sell". A surprising similarity of names of fictional politicians, condemned by the author, or rather, by the hero of the book, with the actually existing Toronto’s management. From my point of view - this is not a mystery detective novel, how they are trying to present the book, but a some kind of fictional or based on reality "document”, accusing the entire political, police, legal, etc. Top of Toronto. It is shown that the journalism doesn’t have so much: - if you want to save your job – be quiet. Bad feeling from described the opinion of super-rich residents of Toronto about the rest - as they call the rest - stupid peasants. If this is really how it is – it is disgusting and sad.
