Feeling patriotic (must be that maple ice wine candy) so today's tease is Canadian: Anthony Bidulka's Russell Quant series ... private eye mysteries set in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. From "Flight of Aquavit":
Waking up on a bed of straw with my friend's partner in a barn in the middle of nowhere justifiably made that particular Christmas Eve day the most peculiar I'd ever had.
The titles, in order, in the Russell Quant series are:
Flight of Aquavit
Tapas on the Ramblas
Stain of the Berry
Aloha, Candy Hearts
Date with a Sheesha
