It is surprising that the author was a writer and editor. This is poorly written for someone with this kind of experience. I would not recommend this book, nor would I read any book by this author.

A good first book, I really like the main characters. The story has some parts that don't quite gel the editor should have caught these. Would I read another Duncan book yes.

I had to re read the end a couple of times as I thought I had missed a vital piece of information and it wasn't forthcoming. Very cozy village atmosphere where the police date the witnesses? How did this book get an award?

Although the characters and setting were engaging, to say that the logistics were ill conceived would be an understatement. I felt hoodwinked reading this book to the end: Not only would the murder have been impossible to commit, but the baroque complications were inexplicable and unnecessary. To imagine not one but two broken-off syringes boogles the mind. The words uttered by the second victim and the explanation for them were beyond belief. Also, we were left to guess at the motivation behind the damning actions of 2 characters under suspicion--the meeting and affection on the part of one and the accusation on the part of the other. Huge loose ends dangled.

Pretty good. And Canadian!
