I like the blending of the murder mystery with the history but the ending was a bit unsatisfying.

Really enjoyable mystery that takes place in a very interesting period in Canada's history. It was eye-opening to read about what it must have been like in 1970 in Montreal. Bomb, kidnappings, murders. All based on real events. A great read.
