Book Review: The Poisoned Pawn (Toronto Star)

Yay!!! Jack Batten, crime fiction writer extraordinaire and columnist for the Toronto Star’s Whodunit column, reviews The Poisoned Pawn in today’ s Sunday Star. The review is only in the print edition (so far) but here it is:

“This book picks up the career of Cuban Inspector Ricardo Ramirez where The Beggar’s Opera, the first book in this affecting series, left off. Ramirez is pushing on with two cases: one involving a serial killer and the other dealing with child abuse in the Catholic Church. Even if impoverished and politically oppressed Havana presents unique burdens, Ramirez is not without a sense of humour as he goes about his clever sleuthing including travelling to Ottawa in January for the first blast of winter in his warm-blooded life.”
