Old City Hall

I'm almost done reading this excellent legal thriller by Robert Rotenberg. The familiar setting of 'Old City Hall' - Toronto - really helps you to see the story unfold in your mind in great detail. I think the main characters in the story are well fleshed out and Detectives Ari Greene and Daniel Kennicott (formerly a lawyer, ) are extremely likeable. I love the brisk pace of this book. The concept of the accused not saying a word is different but intriguing. I hope the reasoning behind this action is revealed before the end of the novel. I understand the Robert Rotenberg is writing another novel which includes a librarian! I will definitely be sure to pick it up.
