Detective Inspector Hazel Micallef is having a bad year. After major back surgery, she has no real option but to move into her ex-husband’s basement and suffer the humiliation of his new wife bringing her meals down on a tray. As if that weren’t enough, Hazel’s octogenarian mother secretly flushes Hazel’s stash of painkillers down the toilet.   It’s almost a relief when Hazel gets a call about a body fished up by tourists in one of the lakes near Port Dundas. But what raises the hair on the back of Micallef ’s neck is that the local paper has just published the first installment of a serialized story featuring such a scenario. Even before they head out to the lake with divers to recover the body, she and DC James Wingate, leading the police detachment in Micallef ’s absence, know they are being played. But it’s not clear who is pulling their strings and why, nor is what they find at the lake at all what they expected. It’s Micallef herself who is snared, caught up in a cryptic game devised by someone who knows how to taunt her into opening a cold case, someone who knows that nothing will stop her investigation.   The second novel featuring Hazel Micallef, “a compelling, unlikely hero” (Entertainment Weekly), is a stunning and suspenseful exploration of the obsessive far reaches of love, confirming Inger Ash Wolfe as one of the best mystery writers today.

From the Back Cover:

FRONT COVER QUOTE:

Detective Hazel Micallef wows in her second outing. The series is addictive. Entertainment Weekly

BACK COVER COPY:

A terrifyingly addictive series I m hooked! Detective Hazel Micallef investigates the creepiest of crimes. Mo Hayder, author of The Devil of Nanking

Detective Inspector Hazel Micallef is having a bad year. After major back surgery, she moves into her ex-husband s home to be cared for by his new wife. As if that weren t enough to cope with, her octogenarian mother is insisting that Hazel end her dependence on painkillers an insistence that takes the form of secretly flushing Hazel s stash down the toilet.

It s almost a relief when Hazel gets a call about a body found in one of the lakes near Port Dundas. But what raises the hair on the back of her neck is that the local paper has just published the first installment of a serialized story featuring such a scenario. Even before they head out to the lake, she and Detective Constable James Wingate know they are being played. But who is pulling their strings and why are not clear, nor is what they find at the lake at all what they expected. This is no simple drowning accident or even a straightforward murder. It s Micallef herself who is snared, caught up in a cryptic game being played by a maven of the art of deception.

Lovers of twisty but plausible plotting and an out-of-the-ordinary lead will embrace Wolfe s standout second police procedural featuring Canadian Det. Insp. Hazel Micallef. Publishers Weekly

Just as compelling as the first . . . with an even more expertly managed plot . . . Keeps the reader s heart pounding from first page to last in a distinctive and superior crime novel. Toronto Star

Inger Ash Wolfe is the author of The Calling.
