Local cottager and bestselling Canadian mystery writer Robert Rotenberg is back with his latest novel featuring Toronto’s Detective Ari Greene. His fourth novel, Stranglehold is being marketed as Rotenberg’s most shocking book yet. One day, Greene stumbles upon a horrific homicide which sets in motion a series of events that will see him pitted against his young protégé Daniel Kennicott – and even charged with first degree murder! Awaiting his trial of house arrest, Greene is not only tasked with clearing his own name, but also getting to the bottom of the unseen forces plotting his downfall. Reserve Stranglehold at the Haliburton County Public Library and if you are new to the series, consider grabbing copies of Old City Hall, The Guilty Plea and Stray Bullets while you at it. They are all available at your Library.
