Question. What is the critical attribute a law enforcement officer needs to successfully infiltrate a gang involved in criminal activities? Why, of course, it is the ability to blend in; in fact, blend in so well the gang hardly notices you at all. Corporal Dave Browne of the RCMP operates undercover in just such a role and his ability to ‘blend’ far surpasses that of his team members. You see, Dave doesn’t simply blend in--he actually fades away--literally disappears and reappears at will. Hand ...more

Kirk's Landing introduces readers to a small community in Northern Canada, fraught with hidden issues that are further complicated by Dave's own reluctance to face his Native heritage. I was hooked from the first page and found the story fascinating for it took me to a place I've never been -- a small community in Manitoba, where the winters are beyond cold, quite capable of dropping to minus 40C.

The story begins dramatically and keeps the reader wondering how conflicts can be resolved. I also

Kirk’s Landing by Mike Young

Have you ever wanted to become invisible at will? You could walk unseen into a crowd or enter restricted places without being noticed. Indeed, you could certainly get yourself into a lot of trouble with the law if you had a penchant for mischief, but not if you were an undercover RCMP officer like Corporal Dave Browne busting inner city Toronto street gangs for drugs and crime. Unfortunately, his supernatural power to ‘fade’, which came to him naturally from the abori

OK I enjoyed this book and found it a good read with lots of very interesting characters that were all very well developed. I thought JB's brother, Junior, could have played a bigger role in the story but perhaps that's left to happen further along in what I hope is a developing series. I don't mind a bit of paranormal mysticism in a mystery novel and I thought it was very smoothly integrated into the storyline and was never overwhelming and actually was only used as required to move the story a ...more

Although I finished the very satisfying Kirk's Landing over a year ago, the setting really stayed with me -- the cold, the snowmobile rides, the curling. Rural northern Ontario/Manitoba isn't a place I know well, and it really felt like a character in this procedural-with-a-twist. After introducing undercover cop Dave's secret superpower (invisibility on-demand), Young promptly leaves it to the side while building up the main event--a crooked mill operation in the hinterlands of the wilderness. ...more

I read this over the Christmas holidays and I loved it. The character development kept me interested through the story. The location and up-to-date cultural references were refreshing and the twists and turns engaging. For a first book, Mike Young has done a great job. I can't wait to read the sequel!

I've found a new addition to my favorite authors. "Kirk's Landing" is a fun read, and a page turner! I found myself invested in the characters and plot. The only thing I might have changed is the ending, I was looking for closure. Get a copy and enjoy a good read!

The author combines a tale of small town police work with First Nations spirituality and a slow building romance. It's a good read and shows the author put a lot of work into blending his themes and making the most of his characters. A good read.

An interesting and entertaining read. A really nice illustration of the Canadian north, too, and just the right amount of the supernatural to give it twinkle.
