I completely enjoyed this second installment in the Russell Quant mystery series by wonderful Saskatoon author, Anthony Bidulka. Entertaining brain candy at it's finest :)

I definitely am going to be reading more in the Russel Quant series and look forward very much to meeting Anthony Bidulka at When Words Collide in August.
When Words Collide 2012 - A Festival for Readers and Writers

Product Description
At the dead end of a desolate country road, a late night meeting suddenly becomes an ambush. Gay private detective Russell Quant is faced with personal threats he can't ignore, a friend who may be a foe, and a cagey client with a treacherous monkey on his back. As Quant trails a menacing blackmailer known only as Loverboy, he finds himself immersed in the midnight world of e-dating and parking lot romance. Lured to New York City, Quant tests his wit, wisdom, and wiles from the Old World grandeur of Fifth Avenue to the kaleidoscope world of Broadway's electric nightspots. The fast pace continues when Quant returns to Saskatoon, where he grapples with decoys and deceit, realizing that no one is as they appear. Threat turns into deadly reality and the need to uncover the identity of Loverboy becomes increasingly desperate.

I am taking this fun read to the Joshua Tree cafe today for the Monthly Bookcrossing meeting. Though it is not as great as Amuse Bouche, it is still very fun and worth reading to get to Tapas on the Ramblas :)

Sure looking forward to meeting this creative author of the Russell Quant mysteries at the 2012 When Words Collide book festival.

I read #2 and #3 back-to-back, I just wanted to keep the fun rolling with his great recurring characters, his LOL turn of phrases and great mysteries. I especially loved spending Christmas with Russell's mother! What a sweetie.

Keep them coming!

Quite enjoyed the second book with all of it's drama. Though there's one thing I maybe would've changed because it made me sad. I also figured out half the mystery before the book revealed it, so that was fun.

Thanks for the superb read!

I read book 1 then 3 and was desperately wanting to read book 2.....which this one was. I really enjoyed reading this Canadian author who has his setting in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. ( I thought it funny when one character wanted to be sure that Russell was from sask, sask so he made him spell Saskatchewan! Made me think of the comment...Saskatchewan....easy to draw, hard to spell! (FYI the provincial borders are pretty much a rectangle)). Bidulka explains canadian things that we take for granted but that a non Canadian May not understand and it makes me realize, yes, this may seem normal to us but it is unique.

Good story, mystery....does he have book 4? Hope so....
