it was amazing

RCMP Inspector Croswell is back to solve his 4th crime in The Extra Cadaver Murder. This series is, without doubt, one of the finest police procedurals written by a current Canadian author.

A corpse is discovered on a slab beside a shrouded medical cadaver ready…or not…for a first year anatomy class. The story unfolds with a traditional team, Inspector Coswell, thoughtful, settled and worried about memory loss and the fallout coming and Corporal Bostock, a female detective living under a political cloud. And finally there’s Coswell’s past partner who knew how to keep his boos in a sweet place.

Author, Roy Innes’ style is polished, thoughtful with the action complemented by insightful study of the characters. They come alive, warts, fear and intellect. Dialogue and sense of place are key to the plotting and pace. Innes is a story-teller who triggers your imagination with a mystery that makes you think and when the book is closed, you’re more than satisfied. It’s a series that grows on you and sets the stage for more.
