Short-listed for the 2008 Arthur Ellis Award for Best First
Crime Novel Joe Grundy is an ex-heavyweight boxer whose main claim
to fame was that he got knocked out by champ Evander Holyfield. Now
he's chief of security for a posh old hotel, the Lord Douglas, in
downtown Vancouver, and life is pretty good. But then a young
neo-hippie inherits more than half a billion dollars and decides to
give it all away. As soon as the kid checks into the Lord Douglas
with the intention of holding a press conference to announce the
scheme, Joe knows big trouble is headed his way, especially when
the kid winds up dead. Grundy sets out to discover who murdered the
would-be philanthropist only to collide with suspects and sucker
punches around every corner. Joe had some pretty tough battles
during his days in the ring, but this time the stakes are higher,
the opponents are lethal, and the final count could be fatal.
