The Night Bell by Inger Ash Wolfe My thanks to my contacts at Pegasus Books, Iris Blasi, Katie McGuire, and Maia Larson, for my review copy of this book. You ladies rock! This novel is Wolfe’s latest in the Detective Inspector Hazel Micallef detective series. In this book, the scene shifts at times from present day to 1959 in the Canadian city of Port Dundas, Ontario. In the midst of protests and vandalism when residents of a planned community discover that the developer has lied to them, human bones begin to be discovered in a swampy field that was supposed to be a golf course. The old County Boy’s Home is nearby, deserted and falling down. The bones are those of children. The condition of the bones tells investigators that the bodies are from the 1950’s. Then there is a double murder; a man and wife killed in their own home by a knife wielder. Are these cases connected? A third murder will take place before this case really gets off the ground. As Micallef begins to research the Boy’s Home records, she recalls that her adopted brother Alan was suspected in a girl’s disappearance back then. The girl, Carol Lim, whose father was a local shop-owner, vanished without a trace. Alan drank himself to death years ago, but Micallef hopes that evidence will come to light that could clear his name. In the meantime the bones continue to be discovered in the marshy mess that the developers had promised would be a golf course. It is difficult to know which bones are from the same body. Identification will prove to be difficult. The Boy’s Home had many young men passing through it all the time. It is uncertain that the records can be traced enough to identify the dead. They were orphans, and the sad fact was that nobody really wanted them. Even after Alan Micallef had been fully adopted into the Micallef family, he was suspected in the disappearance of Carol Lim. After all, he was just an orphan who was lucky to have the Micallef family take pity on him. He was unruly and slow-witted. You really couldn’t expect much from THOSE people… The suspense builds nicely, each new chapter fitting together like ®Lego blocks. The picture becomes clearer, but there is enough teasing to make the reveal very much like a jump-start in a horror movie. It will keep the reader’s attention to the last bell… Quoth the Raven…
