Barnes, Mike, The Adjustment League

In this dark, gripping mystery, a damaged hero "adjusts" the corruption he finds within the city's criminal underworld.

"Fiercely alive, marked by a sharp, unerring eye for detail and a wonderful way with metaphors."—Toronto Star

At a psychiatric hospital in the eighties, patients formed what they called The Adjustment League to protect themselves against the depredations of a corrupt and abusive staff. Many years later, the leader of this group—a man known only as "The Super"— receives a letter leading to the discovery of a pornographic ring in need of "adjustment."
