A great read. Vivid characters, an intriguing mystery, and a moving glimpse into the rich culture and fragile beauty of the north.
Barbara Fradkin, author of Inspector Green mysteries
Plenty of well-developed characters and a storyline that raises pointed questions about land use. But the stunning beauty of the Northwest Territory is the real star of the story.
The tragedies of the First Nations people are integral to this vivid, intense story set in Canada’s northern wilderness. A solid choice for readers of Margaret Coel or C.J. Box.
As is the nature of all good murder mysteries, R.J. Harlick keeps us guessing about what really happened.
Ottawa Review of Books
Purple Palette for Murder is a dramatic mystery, involving power and family. Don’t worry if you haven’t read previous books. This one can stand by itself.
