The Finger's TwistBook - 2009
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.
