This is the first book in a police procedural series, featuring Jacques Rouleau, head of the Criminal Investigations Division, and Kala Stonechild, whom he recruits to come work with him. It takes place in Canada, and was a pretty enjoyable listen.
The basic story involves the murder of an employee from a college campus mental health phone service, and a couple of side stories that do not, at first, seem to be connected but will prove to be quite important. Rouleau and Stonechild have personal stories that are opened here, and I assume will be more fleshed out in future books.
The narration was pretty good, the story was not perfect but seemed as though this author is laying the groundwork for future books. I certainly recommend this one, and think the whole series will be well worth listening to. I already have gotten the next book and look forward to hearing it.

This is a routine police procedural. It seems to be the first of a series of stories about the same characters. Perhaps the characters will become more interesting as they are developed. However, there was nothing that caught my interest enough to buy a second book.
Michelle St. John's voice has a pleasing tone and good diction. Howevert her narration didn't bring any of the characters to life.
This isn't a bad story, but there isn't anything very special about it.
