ISBN: 9781459721401


 The tenth Inspector Green novel was released in October 2014, with lively book launches in both Toronto and Ottawa. Several great reviews have already come in from Publishers' Weekly, Quill&Quire, and the National Post . In this book, Green is forced to confront the case that launched his career.


Twenty years earlier, rookie Detective Michael Green helped convict a young professor for the murder of an attractive co-ed.  The man continued to protest his innocence, and shortly after being paroled, he is found dead. Is it suicide? Revenge? Or had Green, with blind overconfidence, failed to see the greater evil lurking in the young woman’s life? 


"A suspenseful and engaging addition..."

Publishers' Weekly


"...rooted in the fundamentals of telling a good crime story, creating worlds we want to spend time in, populated by characters—main and supporting—we are compelled to care about..."

National Post
