Overview

The snow in a Montreal winter covers a multitude of sins ...



In the icy depths of a Quebec winter, a harmless old Polish man dies in mysterious circumstances. His suspicious niece draws in Montreal investigative journalist, Frank Delaney, to help her find the truth behind the death, a story the authorities seem to want covered up.



The search for answers sweeps them into a dangerous web involving Canadian, Polish and Vatican agents who will use any means, even murder, to stop them. The catalyst for this international intrigue is the true story of Polish national art treasures secretly shipped to Canada to be hidden from the Nazis in the opening days of World War Two. This classic thriller combines fascinating history, deft storytelling and psychological depth.



The Mazovia Legacy was shortlisted for the Arthur Ellis Award for Best First Crime Novel, 2004.

A suspenseful story of intrigue and a slowly growing romance between the main character Frank Delaney and his former therapist as they struggle to find the cause of her uncle's murder. Sadly the author chose the old tried and true plot devise of killing off the female partner to leave the main character free to pursue his next adventure in another volume.

299 pages, this book is well written, with a good flow and is a stand alone book. The editing is good. Although it is set in Canada, the writing reminds me of a Russian, historical novel. This book has more pluses then minuses, but quite frankly, I found it slow going and it did not capture my interest. It seemed more like a book geared toward males then females. I am not crazy about chick lit and like a book anyone can read. This book has all the earmarks of an great espionage novel, there is mystery, murder, violence, mayham, but it all seems over done and forced, yet it is not the worst book, not even close, to the worst book I have read this year. I was able to finish this one and it made sense. I just did not care for it and can not figure out why. There fore I am rating it four stars, because I may have just been in one of those moods where nothing satisfied me. Mostly for adult men. AD
