When we first meet Detective John Cardinal in Forty Words for Sorrow he is haunted by a criminal secret in his own past and hounded by a special investigation into corruption on the force. Cardinal is on the brink of losing his career and his family, and his refusal to give up on four missing teenagers only alienates him further from the Homicide Unit. And when the mutilated body of a 13-year-old is discovered in a mineshaft, he is the only one willing to consider the horrible truth of what’s really happening in Algonquin Bay. The first three novels in the award-winning, bestselling John Cardinal mystery series revisit this northern Ontario setting with wholly unique, thrilling and suspenseful tales, and an unforgettable protagonist who has been called “the quintessential modern Canadian crime fiction hero” (The Walrus).
