Toronto the Good (ebook)

* Required Fields

When top Crown attorney Thomas Matthews, a victim of racial profiling himself, is assigned to prosecute the accused against a Left-leaning white attorney, tensions mount and personal politics bubble to the surface. Cutting deep into the lawyers’ private lives, their families and foibles are richly portrayed as an integral part of Toronto’s shifting mosaic. From an ostensibly routine traffic stop, each character must come to terms with the city’s racial politics and how they have shaped their own beliefs and prejudices. Written in response to the rise of gun crime in the streets of Canada’s largest city, Toronto the Good probes the problems that perpetuate the changing metropolis and explores how they have been allowed to flourish.
