ONCE UPON A TIME

RendezVous Press, Toronto, 2002

ISBN: 0-929141-84-9 

 

 

When an old man is found frozen to death in a hospital parking lot, Ottawa Police Inspector Michael Green does not accept the official verdict of death by natural causes. His own investigation draws him deep into old war crimes, hidden identities, and buried secrets from World War II, and in the process onto a personal journey of discovery into his own past.

 

 

 

"brings the legacy of the Holocaust centre stage...the events and the people come alive on the page"

Quill & Quire

 

"Once Upon a Time is so much more than a mystery; it is a story about people pushed to the edge, about families, about desperation, about love. Rarely does one find such depth in a novel of any type."

Storyteller Magazine
