In the 8th book in the award-winning Sgt. Windflower Mystery series, Sergeant Winston Windflower and his trusty crew at the Grand Bank detachment of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police have more than a few mysteries on their hands.
Fire, Fog and Water retains the light crime genre while delving into the most perplexing social issues of our time. Windflower must not only solve the drug-and-death crimes that threaten the otherwise tranquil lives of Grand Bank’s residents, he must resolve his own internal conflicts before they consume him as surely as the blaze that engulfed the house on Coronation Street.

Sgt Winston Windflower is a skilled law enforcement officer of the RCMP working in the small town of Grand Bank, doting husband and father, reliable friend, and experiencing a restless unease near the end of a long bleak winter. Then he literally trips over a frozen body in the snow while out running with his dog. And things go downhill from there. His temporary superior in a self serving bully who alienates everyone and finally pushes Cpl Eddie Tizzard too far and brings down serious trouble for everyone, with Windflower in the middle trying to do the best for everyone. Then there's an attempted murder of someone associated with the frozen body and evidence of the drug trade within the area. He gets help from some other superiors, support from older friends, and is pointed in the right direction for his own life by returning to the old ways.
The tale is intricate, the characters are good people who come to feel like old friends (not the bad guys), and it saddens to realize that the drug trade has infected even Newfoundland.
It bears noting that each book in the series stands alone on its own merit.
I requested and received a free ebook copy from Ottawa Press and Publishing via NetGalley. Thank you!
