Another installment in this series. Interesting detective, Kala Stonechild; a native Canadian, makes this an interesting series.
Chapman's books, set in Ontario with a native female as a major detective in the local police force, are an enjoyable read. The author tends to focus on social issues in her books and the continuous character development of her detectives. She weaves enough details about the lives of her main detectives into the story so that we get to know them as well as the criminals quite well. Don't expect car chases, shoot outs, and escalating violence, but do expect a well thought plot with several story strands that get twisted finally into a dramatic close. With this novel, it did seem to take a while for the author to set the scene, to get the reader familiar with the back story of all the characters, and to get the detectives to see the connection between the two murders. The story revolves around a women's help center at the local university and different forms of sexual abuse. The novel can be read as a stand alone although it is number 2 in the Stonechild - Rouleau Mystery series.
I liked it, always good to read stories involving areas that are familiar. The police characters are interesting as they were in the first book of this series. Not so sure about the psychotic murderers though, they were a little over the top. Good police book overall though.
Loved this book and her previous one too. The story takes place in Kingston,ON and as they drive around town, I feel like I'm driving with them! Same with her previous book when they were in Ottawa. Very intriguing story-line/mystery.
Really enjoyed this book. My only regret is that I started with the second in the series. Looking forward to reading the first book, Cold Mourning and anything else from this fine new Ottawa writer.
