Thrills, Chiils and Laughter - the Fradkin / Maffini mini-library tour - is in the works, promising to be lots of fun. Check the News and Events page for dates.
Amanda Doucette pursues the connection between a reclusive artist and the wealthy surfer who turned up dead on a remote island in Vancouver Island’s Pacific Rim in a wilderness-infused mystery perfect for fans of Jane Harper or Louise Penny.
"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."
