  • A murder has been committed at the Official Residence of the Canadian High Commissioner in London, England. Was the victim the target of someone inside or outside the High Commission’s walls?The most interesting piece of this book isn’t the mystery, but the jurisdiction issue. The murder occurs essentially on Canadian soil, but technically in London, England. Is this a case for Scotland Yard, or the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP)?For my full review, please visit Hidden Staircase.Thanks [...]


  • The murder of a diplomat at the Canadian High Commission in London results in a unique police investigation. Even though the High Commission property is considered to be Canadian territory, Scotland Yard is brought in to find the killer. A Royal Canadian Mounted Police team is sent from Canada to investigate too. Of course, there’s a turf war and friction between the female RCMP Inspector (Liz Forsyth) and her Scotland Yard counterpart, DCI Hay. Their strained relationship continues throughout [...]


  • Fun to read a book about a female RCMP officer in the UK. Some interesting characters and development in the mystery. Also did not see who done it til the end - I also did not know that embassies between Commonwealth countries are called High Commissions - so there i learned something new by reading this book. Also causes me to question my Canadian education - or might speak to my general lack of interest in most things diplomatic/political. Regardless. - i notice the CNIB has the next book in s [...]


  • I’m a fan of Canadian authors and enjoyed the setting (Canadian High Commissioner office in London). I also loved how it was a British investigator and a Canadian RCMP investigator working together. So many fun nuances right there. The character development was convincing. The graphic detail wasn’t overblown. However, I found it a little predictable and stilted at times, and well crime novels aren’t really my thing. So maybe more of a 2.5 stars? Or a 2.75?


  • The first Forsyth and Hay police procedural series set in London pairs a Mountie and a Scotland Yard detective tasked with unravelling a chain of brutal murders.


  • The premise behind this book is a good one -- a murder committed in the Canadian High Commission in London, triggering an investigation by both the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and Scotland Yard. The two detectives -- Liz Forsyth of the RCMP and the Yard's Stephen Hay -- are fairly well developed and memorable. Both are smokers, incidentally, and at times it seems that's all they have in common. The "whodunit" aspect of the story is capably constructed, with no dearth of breadcrumbs to lead the [...]


  • I really enjoyed this book for many reasons but I think what really stands out is the unique partnership of Hay and Scotland Yard with Forsyth and the RCMP. This is an arrangement that I can not remember ever occurring in any police procedurals that I have read and it sure made for an entertaining read. When you combine that with a well written story with good and interesting characters, likeable MCs, fairly believable motives, good police procedures, a pretty good twist leading to a satisfactor [...]


  • As a relative newbie to the genre (mystery? crime-fiction? - that's how newbie I am!), I really enjoyed "A Quiet Kill". A nice roster of characters, and inter-connections. Felt I got to know them well, drawn through their words, thoughts & descriptions. And the plot was beautifully clever -- I truly did not "see it coming"! As a Canadian, this book was especially fun to read! Gave me some helpful context on my own country's (recent) history and how things operate "out there", in the diplomat [...]


  • This is a fantastic first novel. It is well written, concise, with a very fast paced plot and lots of interesting characters! And the two protagonists work well with each other. Hope the second novel in this series is to be published soon.


  • This book written by a Canadian, takes place in London, UK surrounding the murder of a young woman at the High Commission. Good story involving a female Mountie brought in from Ottawa and a male Chief Inspector from England. There will be some romance there in the next book!



  • A murder committed in the Canadian High Commission in London,England with a mix of English and Canadian police characters. I thought it was an enjoyable read and I look forward to book #2.
