After the Horses by Jeffrey Round

After the Horses by Jeffrey Round

Dan Sharp scours Toronto’s seamy underbelly after the murder of a notorious nightspot owner, and finds his own life on the line.

When Yuri Malevski, owner of notorious country-and-western bar The Saddle and Bridle, is found dead in his Parkdale mansion, missing-persons investigator Dan Sharp is reluctant to interfere in what he sees as police business. At first, Malevski’s sleazy lifestyle and shady associates make the murder look like an open-and-shut case, but Dan reconsiders after being approached by a couple who say Malevski was killed by cops over protection money.

When vulnerable people who had frequented the dead man’s bar begin to disappear, Dan feels compelled to jump in feet first. Following a lead, his investigation takes him into the heart of Toronto’s gay community, where he confronts its down-and-outs — transients, drug dealers, and con artists — and soon finds his own life threatened as his search brings him closer to a killer. 

This was a guessing game all the way to the end!!  The suspense was killing me, trying to figure out who was the killer on every other page of this book.  Loved the story telling, the flow and especially the conclusion where we exactly found out whodunit.  This is my first book by this author and I look forward to more of Dan Sharp in the future.  If you are looking a suspenseful read with not a whole lot of sex then I highly recommend this book.
