Boston Cream by Howard Shrier

Boston Cream is the third novel in a mystery series by Canadian writer, Howard Shrier.  All three books including High Chicago and Buffalo Jump feature the antics of secular Jewish private detective, Jonah Geller. As I enjoy mysteries with rich settings, I was attracted by the title, seeking to see if it was similar to the Noir series.  Quirky, and sometimes violent, Shrier comes by his crime knowledge via a  career as a Montreal crime reporter, so the police procedural elements in Boston Cream ring true.  In this novel, Geller visits Boston at the behest of a Canadian Jewish family to delve into the disappearance of their son, a medical resident at Sinai Hospital.  Fans of Robin Cook’s medical mysteries will enjoy this new voice.
