Here’s the set-up:
Parking Officer Jon Rupret wants desperately to move up from handing out parking tickets. An impulsive act from his past throws him into Operation Anti-RACE—a unit set up to stop RACE. He is partnered with veteran detective, Phillip Beadsworth, a mild mannered Brit who doesn’t much like Rupret and knows more than he reveals.
Along the way Rupret encounters Mahmud Hanif, a qualified engineer, who drives a taxi to pay his bills; DJ Krash, the second best disc-jockey in the world; Cal Murray, the owner of the House of Jam, the hottest club in Toronto; and of course, his mother, a grade school teacher in Guelph, who thinks Rupret is a financial advisor working on Bay street.
RACE is a compelling mystery and a humorous look at Toronto through Jon Rupret’s eyes.

“Those looking for an entertaining read need look no further. This is Qureshi’s first book. An hilarious romp through the streets of Toronto. His protagonist, Jon Rupret, as well as being an extremely likeable and engaging character, will have you laughing out loud in no time. The humour comes at you fast and relentless throughout the entire book. A delight to read.”
“What I liked best about this novel was the authour’s use of authentic Toronto locations and characters, yes I live in Toronto. Through pithy descriptions of real life places ranging from the downtown core to the steamy suburbs, the story really came alive for me. A nicely crafted novel, I anticipate reading more by Mr. Qureshi.”
