Canada's top private eye is back as Jonah Geller resumes his vagabond ways in Boston Cream , the Vintage World of Crime trade paperback original and sequel to the Arthur Ellis-winning novels Buffalo Jump and High Chicago.

David Fine is not the kind of guy to go missing. Or so his father tells PI Jonah Geller. A brilliant young surgeon-in-training, devout, devoted to his parents--last seen 2 weeks ago leaving the Boston hospital where he worked. Still recovering from a concussion, Jonah and partner Jenn Raudsepp soon find out that David fled for his life after a vicious Irish crime boss tried to abduct him. And that he's more likely dead than alive. Then Jenn joins the ranks of the missing, and Jonah needs help from former hit man Dante Ryan and two local wise guys as he races the clock to save her life, one step ahead of the Boston law.

The beginning took me a while to get into, I had to start and stop several times and not for a lack of opportunity to read. Eventually it picked up after all the details were established and the case got going it kept my interest.

I will say I am not happy about Jen's storyline but if it means another appearance by Dante Ryan then it's hard for me not to get excited. The last third of the book was a page turner and the end was best described but the person below me.." sick at heart" but I will still be reading the next one!

Well drawn characters, a compelling plot and lots of action. A great addition to this series with PI Jonah Geller. Geller is a Toronto PI who gets dragged into a case in Boston (hence the title). Not for fans of cozy mysteries - I found myself turning pages to find out what happened.

"The third Jonah Geller novel by Arthur Ellis-winner Howard Shrier is the best so far. Shrier has a great eye for location and a good ear for dialogue. Add those to solid characters and an intriguing plot and you have a winning combination for any mystery lover."

PI Jonah Geller, not fully recovered from a head injury, takes a case he shouldn't have. In the end, Geller's distracted carelessness contributes to the death of the abducted doctor and the capture (and repeated rape) of his lesbian partner. While I couldn't put the book down, it left me feeling sick at heart.
