The Whisper of Legends

Barbara Fradkin. Dundurn, $17.99 trade paper (400p) ISBN 978-1-4597-0567-8
Barbara Fradkin's ninth Inspector Green Mystery is a well-written page-turner with a pace as fast as the current in the famous Nahanni River, where Hannah Green has gone missing. She has told neither of her divorced parents the truth about her trip into the wilderness of the Yukon and Northwest Territories. When one of her group's canoes washes up in the shallows downstream, her father Inspector Michael Green of the Ottawa Police cannot wait for the local authorities to officially take action and heads out to Fort Simpson with his colleague Staff Sergeant Brian Sullivan to find Hannah. Even though Mike is a city boy, he is undeterred by the daunting wilds. He and Sullivan head down the river with a guide, his dog and a pilot, who are intimately familiar with the River and its surroundings. The history of the Yukon, the gold rush, tales of tragedy and the possibility of riches just under the surface are seamlessly interspersed with the compelling story of Hannah and her father's quest to find her before it's too late.
