A bit about Barbara...
Barbara Fradkin is a retired psychologist and multiple award-winning mystery author whose work with children and families provides much of the insight and inspiration for her stories. She has an affinity for the dark side and is best known for her gritty, psychological Inspector Green novels, which have been nominated four times for the Crime Writers of Canada Award of Excellence in the Best Novel category. She has won this award twice.
More recently, she embarked on a mystery-thriller series featuring Amanda Doucette, an adventurous, passionate but struggling international aid worker who is looking for healing and new direction. There are currently four books in that series, set in different, iconic locations across Canada, with The Ancient Dead set in the starkly beautiful badlands of Alberta.
She also writes an easy-read series for reluctant readers which features simple country handyman Cedric O'Toole.

"Fradkin, a retired psychologist, creates well-drawn, complex characters, and she knows how to build tension and drama that hold readers to the end."
Starred review, Publishers Weekly
"Ottawa-based author Barbara Fradkin is one of today's finest mystery writers. Her Inspector Green mysteries linger long after the story is told."
"Fradkin's forte is the emotional cost of crime."
