? Fradkin, a retired psychologist, creates well-drawn, complex characters, and she knows how to build tension and drama that hold readers to the end.
Publishers Weekly (starred review)
Readers of Tana French and Deborah Crombie may want to investigate.
The book also leaves one wishing to know more about Amanda Doucette. She is a plucky, adventurous, smart, caring person with an exciting, globetrotting career and the potential for many great stories.
Readers who have enjoyed Barbara Fradkin’s series featuring Inspector Green of the Ottawa police will not be disappointed with her new protagonist, Amanda Doucette.
Reviewing the Evidence
Launching a new series, Fradkin scores low for mystery, high for wilderness adventure, and off the charts for her portrait of the bleak, beautiful Newfoundland landscape.
Fabulous. The characters were amazing and the story pulled you in, and kept me guessing until the end.
Masterly … it’s the wilderness that provides the story’s passion.
If you want to get a real feel (and fear) of the woods, this is the book for you.
Globe and Mail
A terrific read.
Winnipeg Free Press
Believable, nuanced characters and unpredictable plots.
Atlantic Books Today
A simply riveting read from first page to last by a master of the genre.
