The long-awaited new instalment in the award-winning, bestselling John Cardinal mystery series. A year after the death of his beloved and troubled wife, Catherine, John Cardinal has moved into a new, but very humid, condo. He has fallen into an easy routine of work on cold case files and platonic movie nights with friend and colleague Lise Delorme. The quiet of a snow-covered Algonquin Bay is shattered when the decapitated bodies of two people are found in a summer home on Trout Lake. The victims, visitors from Russia, are in Algonquin Bay attending the annual fur auction. This is by no means a routine murder investigation as Cardinal soon discovers, but a horrific piece of a very twisted puzzle. Blunt has, once again, given us a page-turning plot, a remarkable cast of characters and the comfort of John Cardinal at the helm.… (mais)

The last book in this series, By the Time you Read This, opened with Detective John Cardinal's wife's body being found at the base of an apartment building. In this book it has been about a year since she died and Cardinal has (sort of) moved on with his life. He sold the house he and Catherine lived in and bought an expensive condominium which is plagued with moisture issues. He is still working as a detective for the Algonquin Bay police so he is one of the first officers called when two headless bodies are found in a summer residence. The male and female are dressed in expensive clothes including fur coats but other than that there is not much to identify them. When they are identified as two Russian-Americans in town for the annual fur auction the immediate thought is that the Russian mafia are somehow responsible. It is apparent that someone escaped the cottage after hiding under the bed and Cardinal and his partner, Lise Delorme, would like to talk to that person. The reader actually knows that the person in hiding was a young indigenous woman who met her lover, the real estate agent for the house, there. Her lover left first and she was about to leave when people entered the house. When she heard gunshots she panicked, threw a chair against the bedroom window and jumped out into the snow. The killer chased her but she managed to get away, dropping her cell phone in the panic. She wants to call the police but her lover, who is married, tells her not to. Now she is worried that the killer can trace her by her cell phone and that she will be next on the list of homicides. Meanwhile the press is in town to cover this bizarre crime and one reporter from New York seems to know a lot more about the dead couple. She gets to know Cardinal maybe because she wants the inside scoop but maybe she is also genuinely attracted to him. For Cardinal it is the first time he has felt any interest in a female since Catherine died so he is hoping it is the latter. As things turn out he will regret the fling but not because he is still grieving.

There is a lot of description of the countryside and the weather just as there should be in a Canadian crime novel. ( )

Enjoyed the story, but was sorry to see that the author had to add vulgarity to sell his work. ( )

The fifth of the John Cardinal/Lise Delorme Canadian police procedurals was worth the read. Set in Algonquin Bay, a couple of hundred miles north of Toronto, the town of 60,000 or so is rocked by a particularly grisly crime: the murder and beheading of two wealthy Russian fur dealers in town for the annual fur fair. Cardinal is lead investigator, and is also assigned to clearing a cold case from almost forty years earlier involving the disappearance of a family. How the two investigations work out is consistently interesting, as is Cardinal and Delorme's friendship. As in the other books, supporting characters are carefully drawn, the investigations are well conducted, and there is a burst of action near the end. ( )

Though I have met Giles Blunt a few times, I have never read any of his novels...until now. John Cardinal, our protagonist, features in this crime series. He is a police officer in a northern Ontario community. While this isn't my usual reading material, I received it as an ARC and it was a quick read and the fact I had read none of the books in the series did not impact the reading. I enjoyed the familiar aspect of the setting and the plot was interesting though a few strings were left dangling. ( )

things i didn't like:
psychopaths
why is the beginning of the book necessary? those 2 characters just disappear and aren't that interesting anyway.
a lot of coincidences
didn't quite understand why the russians were murdered.
but still very well done. ( )

A small city that heralds itself as the Gateway to the North is also unlikely to be known as the gateway to fine dining, and until recently—unless your idea of an evening out involved donuts or poutine—this was pretty much the case with Algonquin Bay.
