it was amazing

A debut mystery from an author destined for awards. A setting that is ripe for story telling and a convincing gift for portraying the painful and challenging life for the survivors of the 2 world wars.

What does a reviewer say when he’s finished reading one of the best debut mysteries read in sometime? A gifted sense of place, the peaceful healing quality of 1946 rural B.C. A complex rivalry of how old wounds, past deeds can fester and explode.

Great touches of post war life, bits of life in the British War office bond with a local Inspector and his comic relief. Blend with the punishing morality of the times and the in-you-face attitudes towards women and you have a novel I’m already planning to read again. Author, Iona Whishaw is an exciting addition to Canada’s fine roster of mystery writers.
