Carry Tiger to Mountain (An Elias McCann Mystery Book 2) Kindle Edition
|New from||Used from|
Mass Market Paperback
Zuehlke draws believable portraits of his characters, especially the thickheaded, irascible Danchuk, the local RCMP sergeant and McCann's nemesis. Less believable is the fact that both Elias and Vhanna are independently wealthy (from different but equally unlikely sources), and the presence of Vhanna's cousin, Kim, a former Khmer Rouge boy soldier, working as a cook on the refugee ship. Nevertheless, the story is sufficiently complex and engaging throughout, despite a somewhat hurried conclusion. And, for a mystery that features a coroner, the novel manages not to dwell on the gorier aspects of his occupation. McCann prefers to solve crimes, to the endless frustration of Danchuck and the rest of the RCMP and the ultimate discomfiture of the bad guys. --Mark Frutkin --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
