“Canaryville Bridge – an Urban Mystery”
Based on a true story. Aging baby boomer, self-described ne’er do well Paul Terrazino wants to fulfill his wife’s life-long wish of finding—for reasons both medical and spiritual—her natural mother, who birthed and surrendered her for adoption to a Catholic orphanage in Chicago before vanishing into the streetscape. Six decades later the novice, often bumbling sleuth learns about DNA science, how to research immigration, birth, marriage and death records, drink Irish whiskey—and how not to. His quest, punctuated by frustration, humor, tragedy and joy, ends in jaw-dropping surprise when one mystery is solved, only to unveil another.
