I seems I’ve been eagerly awaiting the next book in the Sgt Windflower series by Mike Martin for ages and I’m never disappointed when I finally get my copy of it. It was a good mail day last week when it arrived in the mailbox.
The 9th book in this series is set in Grand Bank, Newfoundland. I really enjoy a story that gets you hooked right at the beginning .. and this one does just that. The books also show you that small towns can have all the undercurrents of crime, from drugs, to gangs, to violence.
Eddie Tizzard is in Las Vegas to do some private investigator training. If you remember from the last book he is considering leaving the RCMP and setting up his own detective business. Unfortunately for Tizzard he comes across a body and ends up in jail. And it get worse before it gets better.
What is that saying, What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas. Well in this case what happens in Vegas finds its way to Grand Bank.
Meanwhile Sgt. Windflower is out on routine inspections and ends up falling down an old mine shaft. Injuries force him to slow down and reflect on his life. But he doesn’t like to slow down and finds ways to still be at work.
All the events get intertwined and the RCMP end up investigating a meth crisis involving gangs. Along the way there are accidents, deaths, raids, and arrests.
A family death has Windflower, Sheila and Amelia Louise returning to northern Alberta for a short time and Windflower looks for guidance through his dreams.
I just love a cozy mystery and I know you will really enjoy this series too. With each book it is like going home to be with the family. In this case it is Windflower, Tizzard, Betsy, Sheila, Amelia Louise, the Doc, Herb and others.
Changes are coming to the RCMP detachment and to Windflower and Sheila’s family life. I can’t wait for the next book in the series.
