#5 in the series (1992). "RCMP Staff Sergeant Karl Alberg is at a crossroads. Coping with the death of his father and his own inexorable slide into middle age, he must make a decision about his relationship with Cassandra Mitchell, his lover of 8 years. Restless and in desperate need of distraction, Karl finds a project to fill the time during his bereavement leave: looking into the all-too-neat disappearance of a local man on the morning after his sixth wedding anniversary. Ultimately the case converges with another, as the very messy life of a simple-minded Vancouver stock boy spills over into the small coastal town of Sechelt." - Seal jacket notes
Very good: fascinating crime story, likeable police characters. An excellent series. ( )
