Overview

Blame it on the neighbours: they're the ones that introduced recently widowed ex-cop John Swan to the tantalizingly widowed Meg Maloney, your classic blond bombshell. Turns out, it's a match made in purgatory. Swan suspects Meg may have murdered her last husband. So what does sexy Meg want with a fat, middle-aged burnout like Swan?

He leads the femme fatale down one of his familiar rabbit-holes, an east Toronto community of touts and tarts where old pals gamble, carouse and stumble through an off-track betting parlour Swan calls The Farm. But it's Swan's mettle that's tested when a recent acquaintance is found gutted in the flea-bag hotel parking lot next to Swan's tired chevy. Meg is aroused and inspired. Who'd want to kill Toby, a diaper deliveryman, and why?

Together, Maloney and Swan make the strangest detective duo since, well, ever. Darkly humorous, Sap is full of shabby characters, sexy encounters and more twists and turns than your average small intestine. God help us all if this spins into a series.
