Overview

Ottawa Homicide Inspector Michael Green is absolutely obsessed with his job, a condition which has almost ruined his marriage several times. When the biggest case of his career comes up, his position, his relationships and several lives are put into grave danger. A young graduate student and scion of a rich family is found expertly stabbed in the stacks of a university library, but no one seems to have the slightest idea why. But as Green probes into the circumstances of the young man’s life, a tangled web of jealousy and intrigue is revealed. Green finds himself in the middle of a rivalry in the delicate arena of university politics, where gigantic egos regularly collide. Was it the diligent but socially inept researcher, or the macho ladies-man golden boy of the laboratory? Or was it a crime of passion involving the over-protective family of his beautiful new girlfriend? When the murderer strikes again, Green realizes that he must waste no time in solving the case, no matter what the consequences may be.

I really enjoyed this mystery. Inspector Green turned out to be just like anyone else. In other words the book didn't put another police officer on a pedestal. Very refreshing that Green has a few character flaws. That made this fast paced mystery an excellent read. Would definitely read other books by this author.

This was a good mystery that kept me guessing. The only thing I didn't like was the main character's treatment towards his family.

A suspense story inwhich the chatacters are very realistic and, therefore, subject to human frailities. Hopefully, Eddie will learn to appreciate his family more and to show it through his actions.

I did find the ending with his wife a bit cheesy. The story itself kept me guessing. Definetly worth the read
