About this title


This is the third in prize-winning author rosemary Aubert's mystery series featuring Ellis Portal, a disgraced former judge, the unconventional sleuth described by the New Your Times as "a character with dignity and unusual moral depth." The second novel in the series, the Feast of Stephen, won Canada's Arthur Ellis Award as best mystery novel of 1999.

From the Publisher:

Praise for the writing of Rosemary Aubert and for the previous novels in her Ellis Portal mystery series:


"Amazingly compelling....A strikingly original, moving mystery." —Lev Raphael, Detroit News and Free Press

"In an era where most mysteries are notable for their similarities rather than their differences. Rosemary Aubert has succeeded in crafting a series that is fresh and original. Her unusual milieu and unconventional protagonist combine with a complex plot to provide a novel both suspenseful and satisfying." —Robert Wade, San Diego Union-Tribune

"So richly written that it stands out in a genre often divided between stories with good characters and those with good plots....A true feast for the mind, spirit, and heart." —Booklist (American Library Association), starred review


A "smart, suspenseful whodunit...[Ellis Portal is] a character with great dignity and unusual moral depth." —Marilyn Stasio, New York Times Book Review

"Engrossing...well-drawn characters, supple prose and effectively delivered emotional surprises." —Tom Nolan, Wall Street Journal

Chosen as best mystery first novel of 1997. — Tom and Enid Schantz, mystery columnists, Denver Post

"Introduces a most unusual and winning protagonist." —Peter Handel, Sunday San Francisco Examiner and Chronicle
