Max's mother returns to Hamilton after an absence of twenty-some years. Max is not anxious to meet with her — why should he be after she'd abandoned him as a child? But a bigger question looms. Is she involved in an internal Mob war now heating up and about to explode? To make matters worse, Max and his assistant, Isabel O'Brien, are still in the cross-hairs of crime boss, Dominic Tedesco, who's looking to even the score. Now, a week before Christmas in 1947, Max and Isabel are feeling the heat from those dark forces who don't believe in “Peace on Earth”.

"A Family Matter" is the third book in author Chris Laing's series on private detective Max Dexter. The action takes place in Hamilton, Ontario, in 1947, where the community is adjusting to the post-World War Two economy and its returning veterans (such as Dexter). The author has a superb eye for detail and ear for dialogue. This novel is an action thriller rather than a 'who did it' mystery.
