3.0 out of 5 stars Very good police mystery, Nov. 29 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Very good police mystery. I actually prefer a great mystery instead of a police one because they tend to become sort of the same but this is what it is and if you like those kind of books then you would probably give it another star. The characters are likeable and the past is interesting and of course the setting is good.

I liked the main character and the story was good. This was an easy read. The story kept going along at a good pace. The side story about the brother was also good.

4.0 out of 5 stars cold, Nov. 6 2014

This review is from: Sweetland (Kindle Edition)
The book is vivid in it's bleak setting. The story is well told. The characters are well rounded and it is a brutal description of great proportion all around. Very sad story and tells the tale of how one can become irrational. Great Canadian tale. I loved the atmospheric cold that I could feel when reading in front of a cozy fire.
