9781897151860: A Likely Story (Joe Barley Mysteries)

As if Joe Barley doesn’t have enough on his mind. His job as a part-time instructor at Hambleton College is likely to be eliminated, and his partner, Carole, is expecting their first child. He’s also been assigned to find the identity of a mole in the English Department who is part of a nasty and embarrassing letterwriting exchange in a student newspaper. But the stresses of his job and personal life are compounded by the disappearance of a member of the Hambleton faculty, and Joe begins to hear rumours that the teacher was involved with a drug ring run by the Russian mob.

The long-awaited third instalment in the Joe Barley Mysteries series, A Likely Story showcases the biting humour, engrossing storytelling, and keen eye for the ordinary that have made Eric Wright one of the most beloved crime writers in Canada.

About the Author :

Eric Wright's twenty novels have introduced readers to such popular detectives as Charlie Salter, Mel Pickett, Lucy Trimble, and Joe Barley. He won the City of Toronto Book Award, the John Creasey Memorial Award, and five Arthur Ellis Awards. In 1998 he was presented with the Derrick Murdoch Award for lifetime contributions to Canadian crime writing. In 2000 he was awarded the CNIB's TORGI Talking Book of the Year Award for his autobiography, Always Give a Penny to a Blind Man.

Review :

“Wright weaves all of this into a tight story that nips around Toronto like an autumn wind ... Smart and beautifully crafted, this is Wright at his very finest.” (The Globe and Mail)

“Reveals Wright as a writer who’s growing funnier with the years ... in parts of A Likely Story, the laughs, transcending mere chuckles, belong to the out-loud category ... he writes his way around Hambleton’s campus politics in such nimble fashion that the reader can’t be sure where reality leaves off and satire picks up ... Wright produces creeping suspense from among this skullduggery, but perhaps best of all, he generates more than the usual level of comic entertainment.” (The Toronto Star)
