The Concrete Vineyard by Cam Lang
This detective story is a rare vintage – cleverly crafted to keep readers guessing. Self-Publishing Review
Packing an intellectual punch, this smart murder/mystery will have you guessing and gripped! Why would anyone want to murder one of the most respected senior citizens, Niagara-on-the-Lake has ever had? Retired history professor Edward Mitchell was surely not long for the grave, so why would someone risk life in prison to kill him? Picking up the clues is the reluctant Homicide Chief Detective, Bryan Dee. Thinking he might be out of his depth he is happy to enlist the aid of his friend, Kris Gage. But when Dee reads the deceased’s last entry in his diary, ‘time to take care of K. Gage,’ he becomes torn between investigation and friendship.
As an urban planner, Gage is used to the bureaucracy of planning. Following the money, he finds himself in the middle of corrupt developers who seek to take all the charm out of the area. Has Niagara-on-the-Lake become Niagara-on-the-Take?
The Concrete Vineyard is an intriguing and unique whodunit. If you like great characters, clever plots and intelligent storytelling, then you’ll love Cam Lang’s gripping and thought-provoking novel.
