“A Private Man” is the first in Chris Laing’s detective series set in late 1940’s Hamilton, Ontario and featuring Max Dexter. A former RCMP officer and Canadian Forces serviceman injured during WWII, Dexter has set up shop as a Private Detective in Hamilton. Accountant Isabel O’Brien becomes his assistant and trainee, and together they become involved in solving a murder.

The depictions of Hamilton give the reader a great feel for that city during the post-WWII years. Max and Isabel are involved with both organized crime and art looted by the Nazis. “A Private Man” is a good read, and I look forward to reading the other books in this series.
