BEAUTIFUL LIE THE DEAD

Rendezvous Press, Toronto, 2010

ISBN: 978-1-926607-08-5

 

In the dead of night, the phone rings in the missing persons unit of the Ottawa Police. A brutal blizzard is howling, and a wealthy young activist has not heard from his fiancee in over twenty-four hours. Family, friends and police are mobilized to search the snowbound city. The young doctor comes to believe that his partner is fleeing for her life, possibly from his own family. When a frozen body is found in the snow just blocks from the man's home, Green knows that someone is desperate to keep the truth hidden.

 

"Barbara Fradkin's best Inspector Green mystery yet... She really shines in this story."

The Globe and Mail

 

"Beautiful Lie the Dead is one of the finest novels I’ve read this year. While its core is a mystery, it is also a story that poignantly illustrates that the road to hell is often paved with good intentions."

Hamilton Spectator
