Additional Information:

Summary: Movie-industry dirt and the inner workings of all-girl street gangs provide a compelling backdrop for The Ferryman Will Be There, the third title in Rosemary Aubert's utterly original mystery series featuring homeless ex-judge Ellis Portal. When a prominent director gets shot dead on the eve of his Toronto Film Festival gala screening, Portal--who is getting his life off the skids but still rates respect on the street--is called in to help track the filmmaker's missing 15-year-old daughter, who is also the movie's fast-rising star. Portal soon learns that the girl may have excellent reasons for hiding, and to find her, his most bankable asset is trust. As he explains, "Alliances formed on the street are like alliances formed among obscure nations. They may not make sense to the powerful; in fact, they may seem foolish and evil. But, hinged on survival, they have an innocence all their own."

In The Ferryman Will Be There, Portal has moved into a rooming house from the ravine he inhabited in criminologist and former romance author Aubert's first two mysteries--including the 1999 Arthur Ellis Award winner The Feast of Stephen--but the lively character of Toronto's streets and diverse neighbourhoods remains central to the plot. The text is filled with T.O. in-jokes, beginning with Ellis Portal's name, which the protagonist shares with a subway train tunnel. --Deirdre Hanna
