MIST WALKER (Police Procedural-Ottawa, Canada-Cont) – G
Fradkin, Barbara – 3rd in series
Rendevous Press, 2003 – Trade paperback
Inspector Michael Green is about to leave for home when a woman asks his help finding a missing man. 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 really like the character of Green; he is solid, realistic and has a normal married life. 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.
