A Likely Story

Finished March 6
A Likely Story by Eric Wright
This Canadian mystery is from the Joe Barley series. Joe is a man working on a novel, supporting himself as a part-time lecturer at a college in Toronto and part-time detective work. Here, his partner Carole is about to have a baby and he is thinking about the need to get a more permanent job.
First, a couple of cars disappear from campus parking lots, and then a part-time teacher goes AWOL. Joe tries to track down the teacher, but keeps getting information that contradicts what he thinks he knows. When the alternative campus paper starts running anonymous letters detailing battles between the English and Business faculties, the administration takes an interest.
Joe is trying to get to the truth behind these various mysteries, and is worrying about his impending fatherhood.
This is the first book I've read in this series, but it is a nice light mystery with an intriguing plot and good characters. Very enjoyable.
