[R.M. Greenaway] has created a couple of cops who stand out in a crowded crime fiction field for their absorbing personas.
Kingston Whig-Standard, for Flights and Falls
Greenaway brings a keen understanding of love, loyalty, frailty, and greed to her multilayered series debut.
Kirkus Reviews, for Cold Girl
Five Ways to Disappear succeeds because Greenaway subordinates the internal personal and professional drama of the cops' relationships and never loses sight of the real human tragedy at the novel's core: the relationship between an aged arthritic social misfit and the great-grandson he hardly knows and didn't expect to love.
... skillfully entwined into a satisfying skein of serendipitous coincidences. Those who prefer character-driven police procedurals will be rewarded.
A brilliant read during dark times.
Clothes Line Finds
The sixth in the B.C. Blues crime series is as crisply written and satisfying as its predecessors, but it's made especially interesting because we know who killed the artist right from the get-go ... We’re not merely observing the story; as witnesses to the murder, we’re participating in it.
This mystery has dark elements that contrast with the beautiful locale ... will please fans of the series.
The gritty tone of Five Ways to Disappear is mitigated through humour, engaging subplots, and modulated characterization. R.M. Greenaway — one of multiple mystery mavens writing from Nelson, BC — evokes compassion through an occasional softness that intrudes suddenly and startlingly like a warm sun into a frigid winter day.
