The Inspector Green Mysteries

The award-winning Inspector Green series is set in Canada's Capital, a city of rich cultural and geographical diversity, and features the impetuous, exasperating Ottawa Police Inspector Michael Green, whose passion for justice and love of the hunt often conflict with family, friends and police protocol. 

 

Do or Die introduced Inspector Green in 2000, a forty-something working-class man with a young family, a busy wife, a fractious teenage daughter from his first marriage, and an elderly widowed father who survived the Holocaust. There are currently ten novels in the series, which has garnered two Best Novel Awards, as well as two additional nominations, from Crime Writers of Canada. The latest, None So Blind, released in 2014, turned Inspector Green's life upside down and forced him to face his past, as well as chart a new future.

 

"For those who like a solid classic mystery with added character, Inspector Green is perfect."

The Globe and Mail

 


Ottawa River

Although based in Ottawa, the cases frequently lead Green on investigative jaunts to other Canadian locales like Halifax, Montreal, and Gananoque. In the ninth novel, The Whisper of Legends, Green finds himself in Nahanni National Park in the Northwest Territories, on unfamiliar and terrifying turf.
