A Door in the River – Inger Ash Wolfe


Cover art for A Door in the RiverWhen Henry Weist, Port Dundas, Ontario’s likeable hardware store owner is found dead in the parking lot of a cigarette shop on a local First Nation reserve, apparently of a bee sting, and with more deaths to follow, Hazel Micallef finds herself involved in one of the most sensational and shocking cases of her career. And one that literally goes underground to get to the bottom of what turns out to be a vengeful, murderous rampage. Behind the scenes of the investigation, Hazel is dealing with an 87-year-old mother who seems to have lost the will to live; the complications of procedures and protocols, political manoeuvrings within the force itself, including the promotion of her former nemesis to whom she will now report.

In Hazel Micallef, Wolfe has created one of the more intriguing and no-nonsense protagonists in crime fiction. Brilliantly plotted and pyschologically complex, and rewarding, A Door in the River is the strongest, most haunting Hazel Micallef mystery yet.
