Product Description

Review

Harlick underscores the serious problem of missing Native women while providing valuable insight into Native customs. Meg's continuing battle with alcoholism and her guilt over a childhood incident add emotional depth.

(Publisher's Weekly)

I found a lot to like about this book; solid writing, strong characterization, a tight plot and a wonderful sense of place. I will be adjusting my radar settings and looking forward to Harlick's next book. (Reviewingtheevidence.com 2012-02-01)

A Green Place for Dying spins around an important theme. (The Nugget 2012-03-17)

R.J. Harlick has picked a tragically relevant focus for her latest Meg Harris crime novel -- the disappearances, far too often officially ignored and unexamined, of aboriginal women. (Cultural Foundation Native Expressions 2012-03-25)

Harlick's intimate knowledge of Ontario and Quebec landscapes and her insights into modern First Nations people and cultures combine to make this book an endearing read. (Waterloo Region Record 2012-03-31)

Harlick is drawing attention to the plight of native women, but doesn't let the message get in the way of the story. (Globeandmail.com 2012-04-18)

Harlick writes with just enough attention to detail to bring local scenery and events into vivid engagement. Her opening scene, in a moon flooded clearing in the bush, where women have gathered to seek guidance from one of their elders, with the sounds of soft drumming and the smell of cedar smoke for smudging, brought me right into the glade. The climax is equally vivid, with edge-of-your-seat tension, and several surprises that I did not see coming. [Robin Harlick] skillfully weaves murder, greed, traditional customs, bonding and betrayal into a gripping read. (Chronicle-Journal 2013-02-24)
