While trying to help those evicted from the Lucky Strike, a low-rent hotel in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside, Cole Blackwater and his best friend Denman Scott discover that homeless people in the area are disappearing without a trace. Working with news reporter Nancy Webber and street nurse Juliet Rose to solve the missing persons case, Cole and Denman venture into the dark corners of the city's underworld. Soon they find themselves in the midst of a dangerous cabal of city officials, high-ranking cops, condo developers, and crime bosses.
Tackling the real big-city issues of housing shortages, political corruption, and murder, The Vanishing Track is the third Cole Blackwater Mystery and the most compelling yet.
