This story has more action and violence than the first two books in the series and a pretty good twist that one should have seen coming and an ending which was fairly appropriate and satisfying with only a few minor loose ends which are probably, and hopefully, lead ins to later books in this good series. Throughout the series so far I've gotten to like Mike Green quite a bit more than I did in the first book, as a person, but I still feel he is not a top notch Poli Super!
Throughout the series so far I've gotten to like Mike Green quite a bit more than I did in the first book, as a person, but I still feel he is not a top notch Police Detective. Every time he or his team find a new fact the person it involves jumps to the top of the list of suspects and Green gallops off in another direction. I really like Brian Sullivan both as a person and as a Detective. He's the one I'd go to if I needed help! BTW, I've also grown to like Sharon much more than I did in the first book and I'm glad to see she did have a bit bigger role in solving this crime and I thought Modo was quite a character and I hope we see more of her, too!
One thing this series reinforces for me is my contention that it is necessary to read most mystery series in order and reading reviews by others who have tried to start reading this series with this book or later books absolutely confirms that belief. I've always had a, probably irrational, aversion to reading crime novels by lady authors but these two fine authors, Barbara Fradkin and Louise Penny are rapidly helping to overcome that aversion! I'll read all the books in these two great series, in order!!!!!!
Mar 04, Alison C rated it liked it. A young school teacher is wrongly accused of sexual misconduct with a 6-year-old female student; years later, his life is in ruins, he has changed from being shy to being outright paranoid, phobic and reclusive. But he has managed to make at least one friend, and when that friend contacts the Ottawa Police Department to declare him missing, Inspector Green is intrig The past comes back to haunt the present in Mist Walker, the third novel in Barbara Fradkin's Inspector Green series set in Ottawa.
But he has managed to make at least one friend, and when that friend contacts the Ottawa Police Department to declare him missing, Inspector Green is intrigued by apparent anomalies in the disappearance - why had the man left so abruptly that his meal was still on the table, and would this man known to adore his large ungainly dog leave her behind a closed door to starve to death? But Green's investigation is seemingly stymied at every turn, and worse, he is distracted by the fact that his long-estranged, now-teenaged daughter is roaming about somewhere in Ottawa, where she has never been and doesn't know a soul I have been enjoying this series by former clinical psychologist Fradkin, at least in part because I'm a little bit familiar with Ottawa, but mostly because she uses her psychological training and insights to create rich, complex characters.
This story was quite dark and disturbing, but always believable, and in fact, I was so caught up in it that as soon as I finished the book, I had to pick up the next one in the series in order to find out how the recurring characters fared next! Reading the previous books is not absolutely necessary, but I'd recommend doing so. Matthew Fraser was a teacher when accused of molesting a young girl.
He served his time but is now trying to prove his innocence. When a burnt body is found, it appears Matt was murdered, and it raises questions about the original crime.
I enjoy the setting of Ottawa and the twists to the story. I did get frustrated that Green was so willing to accept each new revelation as fact, and that there were a number of lose threads left unresolved. But the book was good enough that I'll read her more recent work and hope the shortcomings have been resolved. Feb 15, Rej Jereca rated it liked it. Jun 20, Maureen Coyne rated it really liked it. Good read as always. Very enjoyable book, I like the fact it's in my backyard! Sep 16, Jeanette Scrimshaw rated it it was amazing. Another good read.
