    (Did I already post this question? Did I miss a Digest in which it was responded to? Apologies, I'm just getting over a bad flu.)

    A few weeks from now I will find myself in Toronto for business. Questions:

    1. Any recommendations on good used bookshops, especially for older/vintage crime and hard-boiled?

    2. Any recommendations on good reads set in Toronto and/or by Toronto writers? (I am coming up with one book, Michael Ondaatje's IN THE SKIN OF A LION, which wonderful as it is doesn't really fit R-A parameters even with a stretch.)

    I hope this post is not a redundant time-waster; I'm now going to go check the Archives.

    Best, Mark Nevins
