(The first book in the Dana Leoni Mystery series)
A novel by

The Place: A rough rooming house in Toronto's Parkdale neighbourhood

The Case: The terrible murder of a marginalized but beloved woman

The Detectives: Dana Leoni and her rag-tag posse of down-and-out housemates

Published to great acclaim and now available in mass-market format, Last Stop Sunnyside, by bestselling author Pat Capponi, introduces readers to Dana Leoni and the mean streets of Parkdale, Toronto. All Dana wants is to retreat from the traumas of her past, but when her mentally ill roommate turns up dead and the police quickly run out of clues, she and her housemates decide to take matters into their own hands. The only problem is that these amateur sleuths can't synchronize their watches (because they share only one amongst them), and it's hard to tail suspects when you don't even have bus fare. Despite the many obstacles, the Leoni team is determined to solve the murder case of their dear but vulnerable friend. Truly a mystery like no other, Last Stop Sunnyside will thrill you with its original voice, gritty narrative and gripping plot twists.
