Jul 14, Patrick Osborne rated it it was ok. Was not very impressed by this book, but for an aspiring writer, there was still something to learn from it.
Check out my full review on my blog: Apr 07, Peggy Leavey rated it really liked it. I also found it an enjoyable romp, with its middle-aged protagonist, Ottawa private eye Sam Montcalm, who lately deals mainly with "bedroom cases" and has a fondness for older women and classical music. Sam's no slouch himself when it comes to the bedroom. At the same time, a sci "Nightshade," by Ottawa author Tom Henighan is a satisfying, fast-paced mystery story.
At the same time, a scientific conference about the genetic manipulation of trees is taking place in the city and in Ottawa. When a scientist from the Arbor Vitae group attending the conference is found dead, poisoned by bella donna the deadly nightshade , Paul asks Sam to help him in the investigation.
Part of an eco-protest group aimed at Arbor Vitae, Daniel is also exhibiting one of his paintings, titled "Bella Donna," which leads him to becoming a suspect in the murder-by-poison investigation. Sam believes in Daniel's innocence and agrees to help Clara prove it.
The large cast of well-drawn characters in the book include Sam's eccentric tenant, who lifts weights to the Goldberg Variations; a mysterious FBI agent, who antagonizes Sam at every turn; a shady man with possible Mafia connections, who is eager to buy into Arbor Vitae and who happens to cultivate rare plants; and the seductive Arbor Vitae research scientist, Dr. There's plenty of local flavour of Vieux Quebec, the neighbourhoods of Ottawa, and the rugged beauty of the Gatineau Hills.
