The Calling by Inger Ash Wolfe
The Calling by Inger Ash Wolfe is the 1st in the Hazel Micallef Detective Series.
Wonderful book. Finally, a 61-year old female police detective, solving crimes in small-town Ontario! Her character is amazing….divorced, bad back and addicted to pain killers, living with her elderly mother, and we aren’t really sure who is taking care of who. Her policing methods are a little “off-the books”, but the job gets done.
In this book, when an elderly woman dies in Hazel’s home town, her face gruesomely formed into a strange shape, Hazel finds herself suddenly tracking a serial killer across the country. Why are the terminally ill being targeted?
This is just a refreshing, really good mystery! Looking forward to reading more.
