At 65, he s an incorrigible curmudgeon yearning to make amends for his former missteps.

A diehard Montreal Expos fan, Halbman pilots his Jaguar to a tony Canadian enclave to see the house he built 35 years ago for his family. A suspicious fire has devoured the home, but Halbman returns again and again, gaining the attention of authorities who accuse him of arson.

Complicating matters is his pesky ex-wife, Mona who he divorced in their seventh year of marriage and her boyfriend; Halbman s new love interest; and Jacob, his gay son, who s scouting for rabbis to officiate his marriage. It may be too late for you, but he deserves a shot at happiness, Mona tells Halbman. A plethora of Jewish jabs and general calamity follow, with Rotchin doing a decent job of keeping plot points simmering in a narrative that incorporates hot-button issues like gay marriage, vengeful ex-lovers, and the power of redemption.

He feels compelled to continually return in his Jaguar to the burned-out ruin of his former home, and to the memories the place still holds for him. As impressively crafted as his debut novel, The Rent Collector, Rotchin's follow-up will entertain those searching for an uncomplicated, engaging read.

Halbman makes for entertaining company and the book breezes along. Rotchins prose flow with a nice comic edge, his dialogue is crisp, his evocation of place unerring.
