Property ValuesBook - 2018
"The worlds of urban gentrification, overpriced real estate, and gang violence collide in this wryly sardonic sendup of a crime novel by author and comedian Charles Demers (Vancouver Special, The Horrors). As a shaky truce between suburban gangsters starts to unravel, schlubby civilian Scott Clark has other things on his mind: if he can't afford to buy out his ex father-in-law, Scott's about to lose the only house he's ever called home. In Vancouver's red-hot housing market, he doesn't have a chance-until he and his best friends take the desperate measure of staging a fake drive-by shooting on the property to push down the asking price. But when Scott's mobster-posturing stunt attracts the attention of the real criminals, his pretend gang soon finds itself in the middle of a deadly rivalry. With wicked humour and a brilliant cast of desperate characters, Property Values explodes the crime novel trope while exploring the comic lengths a man will go to in order to become a home owner in today's market."-- Provided by publisher.
