The High, a band with a few hit songs in the late 1970s, have reunited to play the nostalgia circuit at casinos. But for bassist Barry and lead singer Cliff, this tour promises to be unforgettable and even more worthwhile than ever.

8 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 161 libraries worldwide
When Toronto?s shadow city sprawls outwards with its vicious and encompassing criminal economy, all the local detectives can do is watch, grimace, and drink, sweeping up detritus left in the wake?dead hookers, corrupt cops, and people too slow or weak to keep up or too stupid to get out of the way. Detroit-born, projects-raised, former soldier Get feels right at home here, having returned from the business opportunities he sought in Iraq and Afghanistan. Selling guns to biker gangs and hiding in a veneer of respectability, he soon finds himself wavering because of stick-up girl Sunitha. She wants him to help her rob the bikers' gold bullion drug money and escape with her, swapping this life for another
Everybody knows this is nowwhere [sic] [a mystery] by John McFetridge( file )
8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 146 libraries worldwide
Sharon MacDonald has a problem. It's not being under house arrest. It's not the Iranian guy who just fell from the twenty-fifth floor of her apartment building. It's not even the police surveillance that's preventing her from getting to her marijuana grow rooms. Sharon's problem is a stranger named Ray--he's too good looking, and his business proposal sounds too good to be true. Detective Gord Bergeron has problems, too. There's his new, hard-to-read partner, Detective Armstrong, a missing ten-year-old girl, an unidentified torso dumped in an alley, and what looks like corruption deep within the police force. In a city where the drug, immigration, and sex industries are all inextricably intertwined, it's only a matter of time until Sharon's and Gord's paths cross and all hell breaks loose in this pitch-perfect second installment of John McFetridge's rollicking noir series

Includes the novels Dirty Sweet, Everybody Knows this is Nowhere, and Swap. Road rage or a premeditated killing? Dirty Sweet is a fast-paced crime story that follows each character to a surprising end. In Everybody Knows this is Nowhere, detective Gord Bergeron has problems. Maybe it's his new partner, Ojibwa native Detective Armstrong. Or maybe it's the missing ten-year-old girl, or the unidentified torso dumped in an alley behind a motel, or what looks like corruption deep within the police force. In Swap, Toronto's shadow city sprawls outwards, a grasping and vicious economy of drugs, guns, sex, and gold bullion. And that shadow city feels just like home for Get a Detroit boy, project-raised, ex-army, Iraq and Afghanistan, only signed up for the business opportunities, plenty of them over there. Now he's back, and he's been sent up here by his family to sell guns to Toronto's fast-rising biker gangs
