It's brainy and brawny; a cod drill on the grill


Grand Bank, southeast coast of Newfoundland Canada.
This is the little part of heaven where RCMP Sergeant Winston Windflower, his girlfriend, Sheila Hillier, his sidekick , the incessant chattering Corporal Eddie Tizzard and his other interesting friends get to spend a quiet uncomplicated life.

Their days are filled with culinary delights, chess- and card games and generally as little trouble as possible. But that was before a body is discovered o

Sergeant Winston Windflower’s peaceful days and straightforward police work ‘dodging moose and reckless teens’ comes to an end when an unidentified body is washed up on the shore of the interestingly named ’T’ near Grand Bank. As he and Corporal Eddie Tizzard begin their investigation it’s soon apparent the case is much more involved than first thought, especially when thousands of dollars are found sewn into the dead man’s jacket lining. And to make matters worse Windflower has to suspend one o ...more

The Body on the T is the second book in the Sgt. Windflower mystery series and boy is it a GOOD one !!! If you have read The Walker on the Cape, the first book in this series, you have met Windflower and have gotten to know him and his little town. If not, that is okay. Mike Martin brings you up to speed rather quickly....hee hee.

In The Body on the T you are introduced to a dead body right away....unfortunately who the person was is not known immediately as they have no identification or recoqni

New Review from Denise Z

"Cozy Newfoundland Mystery

Dodging moose in the road and the occasional reckless teen driver are the highlights in Sgt. Winston Wildflower's day until a tourist family finds a body at the beach. Winston gets pressure from the waddling mayor to solve the case because dead bodies just aren't good for the economy.

His life gets more complicated when his girlfriend, Sheila Hilliard, is seriously harmed in a head-on collision with one of those reckless teens. He spends his time

When a body is found on the beach, the local Mounties, in the persons of Sgt. Winston Windflower and Corporal Eddie Tizzard, are soon on the job, never anticipating where their investigations will take them, especially Windflower. His work on a regional task force looking into a drug trafficking operation would seem to distance him from the local crime but, as it turns out, that might not be so and, soon enough, another body turns up.

In some ways, Windflower reminds me of another law officer, Co

I am reading this series way out of order because I got hooked on the later ones and wanted to know more about Sgt Windflower and his life (and bits and pieces about Newfoundland). This one really hit home for me because I used to work rehab with brain injured people until my husband died of a brain aneurysm (and many years later our #5 son recovered from one), so I can testify that the medical info about Sheila's ordeal is truth. I also used to work as nurse alongside US law enforcement so I am ...more

I loved the first book from the Sgt. Windflower Mystery Series, The Walker on the Cape. So, I had to jump on the chance to listen to the audio version of the second installment, The Body on the T. It did not disappoint. Sgt Winston Windflower is such a lovable character and it was great to catch up with him. Especially, when I listen to Francis G. Kearney’s audio version of the story. He does not a great job bringing Mr Martin’s story to life.

I think The Body on the T is so far my favorite of t

This was my first Mike Martin's book. This is the second book in the Sgt. Windflower Mysteries Series, sets in Canada. Sgt. Winflower is a great and fun character. His beloved, Sheila, is a lovely character. The secondary characters are also interesting. The storyline is well written, intriguing and captivating, filled with mystery and also romance. The investigation is entertaining. The scenery is well described, and we can easily imagine it. Francis G. Kearney did a great job with the narratio ...more

Light, predictable and a delight to read.

Not much substance but if you are looking for a quick read, this is it.

I am enjoying this series. Sgt. Windflower is enjoying his assignment in rural Newfoundland. The happenings in town and the characters are interesting and likable. The stories are local and Sgt. Windflower always gets his man. I am looking forward to the continuing saga.

An east coast mystery with the focus on the characters and no gratuitous violence, this slice of Canadiana would an ideal candidate for a CBC televison series.

This THREE STAR mystery read begins right away with an unknown body discovered in the water. It ends up being a special case that ties this book to the first book within this series. It is a good quick mystery read.

"'You are correct as usual, Sergeant, I think you patient is dead,' said the doctor."
I found that the recap of the first book was short and right to the point. I find lengthy recaps annoying and this one recapped perfectly. The novel begins quick, however, it does seem to lull at some

Following up The Walker on the Cape, The Body on the T is the second in Mike Martin's Sgt. Windflower Mystery series. This time the titular body is unidentified, leaving Windflower and Tizzard that much more behind in that case from the get-go. A blast from the series' past comes in the form of another body, identity known this time, linked to Harvey Brenton. Add in Sheila's near-fatal car accident and one of his own Constables' involvement in the distribution of drugs and you've got the bones f ...more

This is the first book I have read by this author. By the time I realized that it was book 2 of this series I was well into the story and hooked. This author has an easy flow to his writing that makes for a quick read and interesting dialogue with well defined characters. The main character, Winston Windflower an officer in RCMP, Royal Canadian Mounted Police, is a strong and resilient character who stands by the love of his life after she is in a terrible car accident. There are good friends wh ...more

I received this book free through Goodreads First Reads. This the first time I have read this author. This book is the second in the Sgt. Winston Windflower series, but was very easy to follow. Very detailed descriptions of the area and food. Interesting characters and dialogue. Light and easy read. I rather enjoyed it and would recommend it.

One of the neat things about this series is that Windflower doesn't solve the case single-handed. He's part of a team; a valuable part of a team but still a team. His perspective because of his background and personality are an important contribution. Also he has to deal with juggling a crisis in his personal life as well as his job. I love the local color too. ...more

It's not a bad book and I did enjoy reading it. It could have done with a bit more editing, fleshing out the characters and giving it a bit more oomph, but overall the slower pace of the novel does accurately reflect the atmosphere of smalltown life in Newfoundland.
