You are a Toronto police detective, lying in the gutter, shot by the man you were pursuing, and your life is slipping slowly away. Your assailant murdered a number of people, but you wanted to bring him in alive, before he himself was killed. What you know, and he doesn't, are the names of the people who want him dead. As you wait for death, the thoughts running through your head are not about your life being cut short, but about the killer you were chasing, the crimes he committed, and the woman you love, who can only stand by and watch as you die in the street.

In The Dead Don’t Dream by Mauro Azzano, we meet homicide police detective Ian McBriar and his partner Frank Burghezian in 1973, Toronto. When two young boys are chased into the path of an oncoming train by a threatening man, McBriar and Burghezian are tasked with tracking down the suspect. They soon discover a web of lies that connects to a murder in Italy and the local underworld.

I enjoyed reading this historical mystery which was rife with the attitudes and prejudices of the 1970s. In addition to the crime-solving, Azzano introduced a romantic subplot in which Ian meets a young single-mother, Karen, and her adorable son Ethan. I’m curious to find out what happens to Ian McBriar and his crew in the sequels, Death Works at Night and Death by Deceit. (Submitted by MS).
