Mystery Author Releases New Book in the Sgt. Windflower Mystery Series: Darkest Before the Dawn
Ottawa Press and Publishing and author Mike Martin are pleased to announce the release of his new book in the Sgt. Windflower Mystery Series: Darkest Before the Dawn.
This new mystery continues the adventures of Sgt. Windflower as he tries to solve crime and experience the joy and the sadness of life in small Newfoundland communities. This is the 7th book in the series that has been nominated for national awards including for Best Light Mystery of the Year.
In Darkest Before the Dawn Sgt. Winston Windflower, finds himself surrounded by a new family and a new life in tiny Grand Bank, Newfoundland. There are signs of trouble that may disturb his pleasant life, including a series of unsolved break-ins and the lack of supports for young people in the most trying time of their lives. But there are always good friends, good food and the sense that if we all pull together, we can find a way to get through even the darkest days.
Ghosts, mysterious deaths, and a new character enliven the pages as Windflower and Tizzard and the other police officers awaken the secrets that have been lying dormant in this sleepy little town. The deeper they dig the more they find as the criminals they seek dive deeper behind the curtains of anonymity and technology. But more than anything, this is a story of love and loss, of growing up and learning how to grow old gracefully. It is also about family and community and looking after each other. Of not giving up hope just before the dawn.
