ISBN: 978-1-894917-03-0


Innocent scapegoat or monster manipulator? A young teacher accused of molestation is acquitted in a sensational case that left the truth hidden and the teacher's life in tatters. Ten years later, his confidante walks into Inspector Green's office insisting that he has vanished. Green's curiosity is piqued when he discovers that the teacher left behind his beloved dog and an apartment crammed with research on his case. Has he fled to escape the wrath of victims, new or old? Or was he innocent and spent the last ten years trying to clear himself?



"Fradkin leads us through an unsettlingly realistic maze that lays bare the minefields surrounding pedophilia. But she does it with sensitivity, without sensationalism, and with a plot with legs. Mist Walker is the gold standard for the series."

Ottawa Citizen


"Fradkin's writing captures it all. Great narrative, dialogue and suspense."

Reviewing the Evidence


"this powerful novel...should not be missed. Mist Walker is a great original work."
