Wright weaves all of this into a tight story that nips around Toronto like an autumn wind. The mystery here is the disappearance of David Simmonds, a newly hired professor.

Comments to eBook A Likely Story (Joe Barley Mysteries)
Wilalmaine
I am not normally a mystery reader, but it was my book group's selection. I do love quirky characters, and there were many. Also love the English language and all its foibles which were well represented. The story "wrap up" was done rather quickly, but the journey there was very amusing.

Eric Wright's Joe is a good character with just enough confusion with his personal life to keep him humble. For anyone who has ever taught a night class or been in the middle of an ego driven academic setting this book will ring true with just enough humor to keep it real.
