6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By N. Lee Elliott on Oct. 30 2010
Format: Paperback
In the frenzy to keep up with the incredible mystery writing talent coming out of Scandinavian countries these days, it's heartening to discover an adept new voice here in Canada. Myrna Dey's Extensions begins innocently at a small-town Saskatchewan garage sale and draws us in with a firm gentleness to a mystery that spans geography, cultures, race, sexes, and time.

Her detective, the boldly named Arabella Dryvynsydes, like all great detectives, comes complete with insecurities, a family, police colleagues and a hint of love. But the mysteries of her unknown great-grandmother playing contrapuntally with the mysteries of Dryvynsydes' day job as a major crimes detective are what keep this book intriguing.

Dey has a deft hand with character. We become as invested in characters encountered briefly, like the adolescent child of an alcoholic mother and a long-lost, over-the-top Christian great aunt, as we do with those who form the core of the story.

I hope this book finds a wide audience in Canada and beyond. Extensions doesn't feed on adrenaline, or intellectual complexity, but on the more simple mysteries of human interactions and growth.

I hope Dey has more up her sleeve and we see Dryvynsydes again.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By John C Williams on Nov. 19 2010
Format: Paperback
From the opening sentence to the last line, Myrna Dey, has crafted a literary gem. The characters are interesting and well defined. The trick of going from past to present is not an easy task, but Ms. Dey's efforts are flawless. The dark and light spots flow well, segueing one to the other and setting the hook deep. Her humor is light, well placed and original. Extensions ended up being a warm friend and fellow traveler. Thank you, Ms. Dey, well done.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Lynda Tysowski on Jan. 16 2011
Format: Paperback
This tightly crafted novel successfully weaves two different genres, mystery and historical fiction, into a novel that is greater than the sum of the parts. Extensions includes suspense, drama, tragedy, and comic relief. Most importantly, Dey is equally skilled in plot and character development, two essential ingredients in my most-loved books. As I neared the end, I found myself torn between wanting to read more quickly to tie up the various storylines and wanting to savour the reading slowly so I wouldn't have to say good-bye to Bella and the other characters too soon. I can give no higher praise!
