This first book by Inger Ash Wolfe caused quite a bit of stir when it came out. It's no secret now that the author is American/Canadian literary author Michael Redhill.
This book involves a serial killer who is targeting terminally ill individuals. As the other reviewer implied, it's not a cozy although I do think it's going a bit far to impute the killer's interests to the author. Serial killer books normally tend to dwell more on the mechanics of the homicide than the average crime story.
The detective is Hazel Micallef, acting chief of the Port Dundas police, 61 with a bad back. As another review I read stated, she was "hobbling toward retirement." She lives with her 87 year old mother, former mayor of Port Dundas. There's also a divorced husband, various subordinates and nosy, uncooperative reporters.
The narrator wasn't bad although the voice was a bit younger than I imagined Hazel's to be.
