Description
Fact or fiction? Current events in the City of Toronto echo the plot of Robert Rotenberg's latest legal thriller "Stranglehold." Everyone is saying he predicted the future for Toronto's mayor. Read it and find out
Ripped from the headlines, "Stranglehold" is bestselling author Robert Rotenberg's most shocking book yet, featuring Detective Ari Greene in the fight of his life.
It is just after Labour Day and the city is kicking into gear. All eyes are on the hotly contested election for Toronto's next mayor and crime is the big issue. Greene is no stranger to the worst of what the city has to offer, but even he is unprepared for what happens next when he stumbles upon a horrific homicide.
In one nightmare moment his world is flipped upside down. Soon Greene is pitted against his young protege, Daniel Kennicott, who arrests him for first-degree murder. Tied down on house arrest as he awaits his trial, Greene has to find a way to clear his name, and also must face some very hard truths: that he didn't really know the people he believed in most; that there are unseen forces at work prepared to see him take the fall; and most of all, that he should never underestimate the price people will pay for love.
Eerily reminiscent of the scandal surrounding the current Toronto mayor, "Stranglehold" is Rotenberg's fourth gripping mystery set on the streets and in the courtrooms of the city, capturing audiences with his masterful knowledge of the intricacies of the criminal justice system and feel for the emotions that make people tick.
