The Body on Mount RoyalBook - 2016
The third and final detective tale in this gritty series of vintage mysteries -- originally published in 1953 -- once again follows the hard-drinking yet hardworking private eye, Russell Teed, through the crooked streets of Montreal. When a brutally beaten body is found on the city's famous mountain, private investigator Teed and his would-be Watson, MacArnold, set out to right wrongs and discover the truth behind the crime. Add a buxom brunette whose embrace brings treachery and a large dose of vicious gang warfare, this hard-boiled, noir crime story provides a glimpse into 1950s Montreal underworld life.
