LIVE BAIT., Wood, Ted.

Author Name    Wood, Ted.

Title   LIVE BAIT.

Publisher    Collier Macmillan Canada, Don Mills, Ontario, 1985, first edition.

Seller ID   20759

212 pp, 8vo (8 1/2" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 029472709 "Reid Bennett returns to Toronto for a refresher course in urban crime in the new mystery by the author of 'Dead in the Water' and 'Murder on Ice'. A Toronto security firm hires Be nnett to catch two thugs who have been bashing the night watchmen at a construction site they're supposed to be protecting. With the help of Sam, his trained German shepherd, he brings in the culprits without much trouble. But the one-nig h t s t a n d turns into a two-week ordeal when Bennett agrees to stay on and find out who is behind the beatings. Between a Mafia loan shark's hired bullies, a bunch of diminutive but deadly martial-arts experts, old enemies of the Toronto polic e fo r ce , an d a s tunning Chinese woman who reminds him too much of bad days in Vietnam, Bennett finds himself overmatched and confused - and begins to suspect that he is as much the hunted as he is the hunter. Great action scenes, a varied and vi vid s et of ch ar ac te rs, and a satisfyingly complex plot make this Wood's best yet." Minor edge wear on boards. Dust jacket is clipped, has minor rubbing. Very Good/Very Good+
