The Calling – Inger Ash Wolfe

I read a lot of crime fiction & mysteries, and I have just discovered this author. It is a pseudonym for an apparently well-known Canadian writer of literary fiction. The quality of writing shows. The first of two books, it takes place in a small town north of Toronto. Senior police officer Hazel Micallef is 60 years old, divorced, living with her mother, and coping with severe back pain. The crimes revolve around psychologically disturbed individuals and have some gruesome details. However, it is redeemed by the wonderfully drawn character of Hazel, as she struggles with her personal life, her infirmity, and her place in a changing police force. (submitted by LL)
