The second Hazel Micallef mystery from the author of the widely accliamed debut novel "The Calling."
From the Publisher:
Detective Inspector Hazel Micallef is having a bad year. After major back surgery, she has no real option but to move into her ex-husband’s basement and suffer the humiliation of his new wife bringing her meals down on a tray. As if that weren’t enough, Hazel’s octogenarian mother secretly flushes Hazel’s stash of painkillers down the toilet.
 
It’s almost a relief when Hazel gets a call about a body fished up by tourists in one of the lakes near Port Dundas. But what raises the hair on the back of Micallef ’s neck is that the local paper has just published the first installment of a serialized story featuring such a scenario. Even before they head out to the lake with divers to recover the body, she and DC James Wingate, leading the police detachment in Micallef ’s absence, know they are being played. But it’s not clear who is pulling their strings and why, nor is what they find at the lake at all what they expected. It’s Micallef herself who is snared, caught up in a cryptic game devised by someone who knows how to taunt her into opening a cold case, someone who knows that nothing will stop her investigation.
 
The second novel featuring Hazel Micallef, “a compelling, unlikely hero” (Entertainment Weekly), is a stunning and suspenseful exploration of the obsessive far reaches of love, confirming Inger Ash Wolfe as one of the best mystery writers today.
Annotation:
In her second mystery as told by Inger Ash Wolfe (after THE CALLING), Detective Inspector Hazel Miscallef escapes from awkward family situations into work, investigating a bizarre crime with links to a piece of fiction. With no one else to take care of her as she's recovering from back surgery, Hazel has been staying with her ex-husband and his sickeningly sweet new wife. When she receives word about a body found in a nearby lake, Hazel jumps (or sits up carefully, cautious of her lumbar) at the chance to get back to work. The body turns out to be a mannequin, but it links to a missing person and a predictive novel, being published serially in a newspaper by a missing author. What is the real crime here, and who is behind all of this?In her second mystery as told by Inger Ash Wolfe (after THE CALLING), Detective Inspector Hazel Miscallef escapes from awkward family situations into work, investigating a bizarre crime with links to a piece of fiction.
