STRANGLEHOLD by Robert Rotenberg
What do you do when you are arrested for first degree murder and the arresting officer is someone who you’ve been mentoring? That’s what Ari Greene is faced with when he stumbles across a homicide and Daniel Kennicott takes him into custody. Suddenly all of Greene’s secrets are secrets no more. And how can he clear his name while he’s confined to house arrest while awaiting his trial? As Ari fights to prove his innocence, another “fight” is taking place in Toronto – that for the election of the new mayor.
Greene begins to realize that not everyone is as they seem and there are far too many things in their pasts that are coming back to haunt them and those close to them. The line between politics and his private life is becoming blurred and his situation is becoming more precarious as the days go on.
Rotenberg provides a real page-turner with this fourth book in his Greene/Kennicott series and his clever ending had me almost applauding.
