Fall from Grace : Leo Desroches was once a success story. Born to a Cree mother and French-Canadian father, he had a successful career as a journalist, was happily married, and had two terrific kids. But he also had one really bad habit: gambling. He couldn't stop, and by the time he hit bottom, he was living on the streets of Edmonton. Then he got a second chance: During a newspaper strike, he was hired as a reporter. Now he's got his life back together, and he's managed to resist the urge to gamble. When Leo covers the murder of a young native prostitute, it's like any other assignment . . . until the cop in charge, knowing Leo's native heritage, lets him view the corpse. Leo's article starts a chain of events that leads him to a much bigger story, one that could bring down the entire police department. As a veteran reporter, Leo knows he's in dangerous territory, but he's still a risk taker. Leo won't stop pursuing this deadly story until he's gotten to the bottom of it . . . if it doesn't get him killed.
