About this item
Dan Sharp scours Toronto's seamy underbelly to investigate the murder of a notorious nightspot owner and finds his own life on the line.When Yuri Malevski, owner of notorious country-and-western bar The Saddle and Bridle, is found dead in his Parkdale mansion, missing-persons investigator Dan Sharp is reluctant to interfere in what he sees as police business. At first, Malevski's sleazy lifestyle and association with drug dealers and prostitutes seems to be at the root of his murder, but Dan reconsiders after being approached by a couple who claim Malevski was murdered by cops in a fight over protection money.When vulnerable people who had frequented the dead man's bar begin to disappear, Dan feels compelled to jump in feet-first. Following a lead, Dan's investigation takes him into the heart of Toronto's gay community, where he confronts its down-and-outs — prostitutes, drug dealers, and con artists — and soon finds his own life threatened as his search brings him closer to a killer.
