Things looked very black for Lieutenant Boruvka in "The End of Lieutenant Boruvka." But in this, the fourth and final volume in the series, the sad-eyed detective turns up again, this time in Canada. Boruvka is working as a parking lot attendant in downtown Toronto, after a spectacular escape from a Czech prison which provoked an international scandal, when a young woman is murdered, perhaps in a spy coverup. Boruvka lends his years of experience and hardwon pessimism to the neophyte Canadians on the case (including his daughter, who works for a feminist detective agency).
