The Guilty Plea

Finished February 26
The Guilty Plea by Robert Rotenberg
Got this as an advance reader's edition (publishing date is May) at the recent OLA conference. And boy am I glad. Once I started reading, I was hooked. This is just as good, if not better than his first book Old City Hall.
We have some of the same characters coming back, specifically Detective Ari Greene and Officer Kennicott. Terrance Wyler, youngest of three sons in the Wyler Food company, is involved in a high profile divorce. He has a new famous girlfriend, and his influential family on his side. When he is found the morning of the trial murdered in his kitchen, eyes naturally turn to his about to be ex-wife Samantha.
We have great plot, interesting characters, and an edge-of-the seat story. Rotenberg is the new mystery author to watch in Canada, and his second novel is a winner.
