Book 8 of the Windflower Mysteries sees a return to plenty of police work for Windflower and his small RCMP detachment in Grand Bank Newfoundland. There's a body that Windflower himself discovers, a hit and run, opioids, and arson all going on at the same time that stretches the resources to their limit. Add to this a belligerent Acting Superintendent and Windflower has his plate full (no pun intended; he always finds time to eat!). There's less of Sheila and the baby than in Darkest Before the ...more

I received a ARC of Fire, Fog and Water from NetGalley and the publisher and this is my honest opinion.

I have read several of Mike Martin's books and for me this one was the best by far, having said that I enjoyed all the others ones that I read also. This book was action packed, and full of all types of issues that we now see in our everyday lives. I love his interaction Windflower has with his dog, and the love he shows for his family and friends. I would definitely recommend this

4 and 1 / 2 stars

Sergeant Windflower of the Grand Bank Detachment returns in this, the latest in the series.

He finds a body in the snow. It is identified as a local man named Paul Sparkes. He was a man who was known to be a small time criminal. Windflower also has a possible hit and run on his hands and a particularly cranky boss. Time passes and things come to a nasty head with his boss. An altercation takes place at the Grand Bank station. A fire breaks out at an abandoned house.

I received a free copy of this new book by Mike Martin. Having read all of his books to date I was happy to read this latest one. My review is of my own volition and a honest view of the book.

Winston Windflower is a hero in this book but he has been one in my eyes throughout this series. If only there was a real person like him, a kind and generous man, a wonderful affectionate father and supportive husband. He is the consummate family man but a hard-working Mountie too.

Fire, Fog and Water is the latest book in the Sgt. Windflower Mystery series set in Grand Bank, Newfoundland.

I have read several of the books in this series and thoroughly enjoyed them all. It has been a pleasure to watch Sgt. Winston Windflower develop in both his personal and professional life, to be enveloped in the beautiful Canadian location and to learn more about his beliefs, local history and the spirit world.

Author Mike Martin has a gift for combining the authent

Picturesque is how I would describe the latest installment of the Sgt. Windflower mystery novels by Mark Martin. The 8th book I the installment keeps us right in line with the other mysteries, on the eastern coast of Canada. Sgt. Windflower is having a bad day when he discovers a body rolled in a carpet – what a cliché, but he has yet to figure out that this is only the beginning of a mystery that will lead him on a merry chase of clue after clue until he can apprehend the culprit all the while ...more

A fun mystery adventure

Fire, fog, and water is a fun and fast paced mystery adventure with our favorite investigator Sargent Windflower. As the story begins, Windflower is investigating three cases that seem to be connected in some way but the method has thus far eluded him. As expected, the good Sargent finds himself involved in a case with a body and a path that twists through the journey in search of the truth. I have always liked mystery’s and this is one of my favorite series. Every time I
