Dirty Sweet: A Mystery
In the middle of the afternoon on a busy downtown Toronto street a man is shot in the head behind the wheel of his SUV. The killer drives away before the light changes. It could be road rage, or it could be a random act of violence.
It could be, but it isn’t. What it is, is opportunity. For everyone involved.
In the tradition of Elmore Leonard and Christopher Brookmyre, Dirty Sweet is a fast-paced crime story following each character to a surprising end.
“McFetridge is an author to watch. He has a great eye for detail, and Toronto has never looked seedier.” – Globe and Mail
“Dirty Sweet is an amusingly sordid tale that features amusingly sordid people . . . If more people wrote the kind of clean-as-a-whistle, no-fat prose McFetridge does, this reviewer would finish a lot more of their books.” – National Post
“The dubious fun is in the dialogue and details of a very entertaining and libidinous local debut.” – Toronto Star
