Description
Detective Inspector Hazel Micallef is having a bad year in this second mystery, following The Calling. After major back surgery, she moves into her ex-husband's home to be cared for by his new wife. On top of that, Micallef's octogenarian mother is insisting that Hazel end her dependence on painkillers—and flushes her stash down the toilet. It's almost a relief when Micallef is called back to investigate a body found in one of the lakes near Port Dundas, Ontario. But when she and Detective Constable James Wingate discover the "body" is a mannequin directing them to a kidnap video, they realize they are up against a fiendishly clever foe. Much speculation has been bandied about on the true identity of the author, a "prominent North American literary novelist" writing as Inger Ash Wolfe, with guesses ranging from Margaret Atwood to Farley Mowat.

"Lovers of twisty but plausible plotting and an out-of-the-ordinary lead will embrace Wolfe's standout second police procedural featuring Canadian Det. Insp. Hazel Micallef.... A body fishermen dredge up from the bottom of a lake in Port Dundas, Ontario, turns out just to be a mannequin, but numbers on the dummy lead Micallef to a Web site streaming video that appears to show a man being tortured by his abductor. In a frantic search for clues, Micallef concludes that the kidnapping is somehow linked to a fictional story being run in installments in the local newspaper. It's a testament to Wolfe's storytelling gifts that her reveal of the criminal's identity about midway through heightens rather than diminishes the tension."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
