Product description

From Amazon

Carry Tiger to Mountain, the second venture in Mark Zuehlke's Elias McCann mystery series, opens with the thrilling wreck of a decrepit refugee ship from China on the rocky shore north of Tofino on Vancouver Island's stormy west coast. The resultant rescue of illegal immigrants involves local coroner McCann and Vhanna, his Cambodian girlfriend, who hope to save a young Chinese girl and a Cambodian cousin from B.C.'s Chinese smugglers, the Snake Heads. The wild landscape and seascape are both gorgeous and dangerous and play an inescapably important role in this well-constructed thriller.

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.
