      This a thoroughly enjoyable potboiler of a mystery novel. I was initially interested because it is based in Nova Scotia, a place I know well. The main plot line revolves around sexual slavery and human trafficking, with a sideline of drug smuggling. In spite of this horrible premise, there are some clever, if extremely improbable, twists that make for a fun read if you suspend your need for veracity. There were a few things that made me give it no more than 3 stars. I grew tired of reading about [...]

      1.5 starsA quick study of Chris Angus reveals that he has true love for Nova Scotia, which is completely understandable. That place is truly wonderful.However, despite the excellent setting, and the adequate writing style, everything else in this book was awful.

      Armchair traveling I've been quite the armchair traveler lately - Tokyo, Maine, and now Nova Scotia - all from my house in Oregon. I love reading about new places (if written by a good author).In MISERY BAY, Garrett Barkhouse had decided to retire. His title was Special Constable with expertise in prostitution with the RCMP. The nature of the job allowed him to go without uniform, working primarily undercover in Halifax, Nova Scotia. So when his boss offered him a job in Misery Bay, Nova Scotia [...]

      Writing a review for this book is tough because of spoiler problems, but here's the gistIntelligent characters, especially the main protagonists - male AND female - well constructed crime scenario with plenty of action.Okay, that sounds simple and in a way this is a page-turner, exactly what you want to read on vacation, on the beach. But the book is so much more. There are serious issues, serious male/female roles discussed, inequities, stereotypes that are exposed in raw detail - ALL carefully [...]
