With the 10th novel in her Inspector Green mystery series, Ottawa writer Barbara Fradkin demonstrates just why two of the earlier instalments have been awarded the Arthur Ellis from the Crime Writers of Canada. None So Blind is a thoughtful, well-written mystery that challenges readerly expectations while embracing the tropes of the genre wholeheartedly.

[S]uspenseful and engaging . . .
[P]erhaps Fradkin might eventually do for Ottawa what Rankin did for Edinburgh.
The Ottawa Citizen
The Inspector Green novels form one of the longest-running and most successful series in Canadian crime fiction, and for good reason. With each book Fradkin becomes a stronger writer, deftly exploring complex moral issues within the context of a compelling tale. A fine, layered police procedural that reveals how some people are not always what they seem, and how others change with time, None So Blind is Fradkin’s finest work to date.
The Ottawa Review of Books
Some series begin to sag when they hit book 10, but Barbara Fradkin’s latest Inspector Green installment isn’t one of them. Two-time Arthur Ellis Award winner Fradkin serves up a superb plot as Green revisits an old cold case.
The Globe and Mail
This award-winning series provides psychological insight into crime and its impact on our lives.
In a modern crime fiction universe in which protagonists are expected to have weaknesses as well as strengths and to portray a full range of human characteristics, Barbara Fradkin’s Inspector Michael Green has always been among the most, well, human.
