A classic 'who done it' set in Algonquin Bay, Ontario.
I really can't tell you much about the plot without giving everything away. Essentially, Detective Cardinal's wife commits suicide. But he is not convinced that is all there is to the story, so he investigates.
I loved the character of Detective Cardinal. Like a dog with a bone, he's not letting go until he's sure that he has every last scrap of meat. I found the character of Dr. Bell despicable. Guess that's what you need in a good mystery.
At just over 300 pages, this is a book that demands to be finished in one sitting.
This novel was a nominee for the 2007 Evergreen Awards.
