LEAVE ME BY DYING – G
Aubert, Rosemary – 4th book – prequel to series
Against the backdrop of civil rights and the Vietnam draft, we are taken back to the 1960’s when Ellis Portal studied law at the University of Toronto. Asked to accompany friend and fellow student Gleason Adams on a midnight mission to the city morgue, Portal finds himself immersed in the abrupt disappearance of a female corpse.
The story is slow, dare I say plodding, but I found it an interesting study in the adage that things are not always what they seem. I very much liked the other three books in this series but, unless you are a true fan, this is not a “must read.”
