It's August, 1985, and private investigator James Cote has a problem.
Actually, he has several.
His wife Lettice is unemployed, over-active, and bored out of her skull. The cheating husband he'd been tailing for two weeks has been killed by his mistress. And someone kidnapped his uncle Gary and shipped him off to Peru.
Someone from his own family--a family he hasn't visited in ten years.
Now James and Lettice have to travel 1500 miles to Toronto under the guise of a long-delayed reunion to find out who hated Gary so much to ship him off to another country, but not enough to actually kill him.
"Getting Rid of Gary is a gumshoe tale with a premise so crazy it's brilliant."
