The Guilty Plea by Robert Rotenberg

The Guilty Plea is Robert Rotenberg's second novel. It's a murder mystery and more. You immediately connect with the characters and understand where they are coming from. It's fun and light and has you guessing right up until the last page. I could barely put it down. It's one of those books that I dragged to soccer practice so I could snatch a couple of pages in case there was no one to talk to.

The main characters return from his first book, Old City Hall, an international best seller and it's like bumping into old friends. I bet his third books delves deeper into Daniel Kennicott's story, I hope it does.

The references to Toronto are funny, and familiar all at once. I found myself nodding my head knowingly and laughing to myself in recognition.

There is one scene, when Ari Greene is revisiting his Mother's grave, it gave me that feeling you get when a good friend opens up about something that really explains how they became who they are.

I highly recommend both books. They would make a great book to take up north and pound through while relaxing on the dock or at the beach.
You should check out Robert Rotenberg's website, it's got a map of the areas each book is set in, there's a great FAQ too.
