Fast pacing. No character dev other than the main characters, which I would have liked. Minimal owrld building. Perhaps more to come? It seemed somehow unfinished. Good story line. The sex was ok, but not connection building.

I enjoyed this book that features the former lawyer, judge and homeless person, Ellis Portal. Judge Portal is no longer living in the ravines of Toronto and he actually has money from his divorce settlement. I was afraid that this would mean the series would lose its punch but not so.

His expertise with the homeless situation is why DS Matt West (whose severed hand ended up in Portal's ravine garden in Free Reign) calls Portal in. Charington Simm, a film director, was shot as he exited his limo to attend the gala opening of his newest film at the Toronto International Film Festival. His daughter, Carrie, who was riding in the limo as well disappeared that night. West thinks she might be hiding out with some former friends from her homeless days. Portal knows some of those friends. One is his landlady, Tootie Beets. But Tootie has other things to think about because she has just found out her home is going to be expropriated. Every time Portal tries to talk to her about Carrie she changes the subject or disappears. Mind you no-one in Portal's life disappears forever, unless they are killed. As he investigates Carrie's whereabouts he sees a few deaths but he knows he is getting closer. Then Queenie, his friend from the homeless days, who has gone up north to attend school, provides the vital clue.

I think it would be best to read the previous two books, Free Reign and Feast of Stephen before reading this book but there is enough referencing to figure out the main details so it can stand alone.

Bad news first:
I seriously hope that this story segues into a short story or another novel that ties everything up, because otherwise it is sadly left to hang in the air without any sense of completion.
Good news:
This story is sexy smexy.
Can't get enough of this feeling, is it hott in here or is it just me, SEXY.
I want to climb all over Hudson and do things to him with my tongue that are indecent... to say the least.

One of the best mysteries I have read in a long time. The characters leap of the page and you are drawn in to the life of Ellis Portal, a Judge who has been judged and found wanting. He now is a homeless man, living off the land, with few creature comforts. The story of his rise and fall is very well done, and very believable. He still has his character flaws and he has to over come these to try a help someone from his past as well as someone from his present.
