Product Description

About the Author

Mike was born and raised in Kirkland Lake, a small northern mining town with a nearby First Nations reserve. He grew up with a love of the north, even in the midst of winter, exploring the surrounding woods with his friends, and his grandfather. He moved down south in his 20's to follow a career in quality management, but his real pleasure was still heading outside the city, with canoe and tent. While in Toronto he also developed an interest in back-alley murals, in artistic graffiti, and worked with some police there that saw its potential as a community building exercise. He'd always been a voracious reader, so several years into retirement he decided to try writing, and hasn't stopped since. This is his first book, but he has several more drafts waiting in the wings.

Question. What is the critical attribute a law enforcement officer needs to successfully infiltrate a gang involved in criminal activities? Why, of course, it is the ability to blend in; in fact, blend in so well the gang hardly notices you at all. Corporal Dave Browne of the RCMP operates undercover in just such a role and his ability to `blend' far surpasses that of his team members. You see, Dave doesn't simply blend in--he actually fades away--literally disappears and reappears at will. Handy, huh? You bet. That is, until the one time during a `fade out', he `fades in' at quite the inappropriate moment. Cover blown. But, how? Why? No time to theorize and analyze. If he expects to survive, time to get re-assigned.

His superiors relocate him to Kirk's Landing, a town in Manitoba, to serve as Commander of the detachment. A neutral enough position to bide his time until the fallout from his last assignment clears. After all, it isn't as if anything really serious was going to occur while he was there. What could a sleepy little town's crises amount to anyway? A couple of domestic disputes, buddies scrapping with too much beer under their belts, kids playing their music too loud... Just the usual small town stuff, right?

Dave discovers there is absolutely nothing `usual' about Kirk's Landing. Behind those friendly smiles are dark and sinister secrets. Everyone has a skeleton or two in their closet, and those bones are restless. Dave was instructed to put in his time there and make no waves. But, as the seemingly picture-perfect façade of Kirk's Landing begins to crumble, Dave finds he cannot turn a blind eye to the shadows lurking around each and every corner.

A missing person's case hangs over the town like a shroud. Rumors abound concerning issues at the mill.

Is this a murder mystery or not? Well that's the mystery too! This is a great story, with fast action and intriguing plot twists. The characters are likeable and well developed. It is set in a rural Canadian town with a healthy dose of aboriginal issues, police investigations, environmental issues, and magic. If you would like an entertaining quick view into small town activities, give this new author a try.

OK I enjoyed this book and found it a good read with lots of very interesting characters that were all very well developed. I thought JB's brother, Junior, could have played a bigger role in the story but perhaps that's left to happen further along in what I hope is a developing series. I don't mind a bit of paranormal mysticism in a mystery novel and I thought it was very smoothly integrated into the storyline and was never overwhelming and actually was only used as required to move the story along. I don't know to what genre this story should be slotted because it sure didn't include much mystery when the identity of the bad guys was evident from the start. I guess it is more of a police procedural with some suspense and romance tossed in along with quite a curling bonspiel!. Wherever it fits doesn't really matter but what is different and very refreshing is to have Dave and his staff backed up by their boss, the Staff Sergeant, who is a good cop and provides the tools and resources Dave needs and is not, as usually is the case in these kind of novels, a completely idiotic fool!
The only real fault I found with this story and which knocked off 1 star was the rather weak and unsatisfying ending which, possibly, leads into the next book. I'll sure read more books by this author

Kirk’s Landing by Mike Young

Have you ever wanted to become invisible at will? You could walk unseen into a crowd or enter restricted places without being noticed. Indeed, you could certainly get yourself into a lot of trouble with the law if you had a penchant for mischief, but not if you were an undercover RCMP officer like Corporal Dave Browne busting inner city Toronto street gangs for drugs and crime. Unfortunately, his supernatural power to ‘fade’, which came to him naturally from the aboriginal spirit world, was not as he learned, always one hundred percent reliable. The novel begins as Dave suddenly re-appears at a biker gang meeting and upon being discovered, barely escapes with his life.
Forced into exile by his superiors Dave is sent to a remote community in Northern Manitoba in charge of a police detachment in Kirk’s Landing. His intention is to bide his time and lie low until he can safely return to the big city, however, that is easier said than done as he finds himself entangled in the lives and issues of the locals including a disappearance, a pollution cover-up at a high tech paper mill, and conflicts between natives and the white community. There is more to learn about his native roots (an Ojibwa grandmother) and his acquired native powers from the Chief and the elders and from the Chief’s lovely daughter, the local barmaid JP.
From the skillful hand of Mike Young, readers are captivated by the larger than life characters and of the likeable Mountie who in the end will always get his man.
This book is highly recommended to anyone who would enjoy a crime fiction with an added magical twist.
