The Dead of Winter by Peter Kirby - My Thoughts

The Dead of Winter - Peter  Kirby

I picked this up because I saw the author interviewed on our local news and I liked him.  :)

 

So it's a mystery set in Montreal, starring Police Inspector Luc Vanier and I loved seeing all the familiar places pop up in the book and the familiar Montreal attitudes and personalities.  It all felt nice and familiar.  

 

The mystery itself was fairly well plotted and kept me wondering until quite far along in the book.  I enjoyed the different characters,  good guys and bad guys - most of them were nicely fleshed out.  I also enjoyed the voice of the book.  Just enough introspection and thoughtfulness to make things interesting.  I do wonder, however, what it was that made Luc's wife pack up and leave.  I guess I have to read the next one to find out.  *LOL*

 

Anyway, a very enjoyable read for me.
