The Taken by Inger Ash Wolfe
The Taken by Inger Ash Wolfe is the 2nd in the Hazel Micallef Detective Series.
I just love this 62 year old female police detective solving crimes in Ontario. This feisty woman has her own way of doing things, and policy is not always followed. A great read !
Hazel has just had back surgery. Unfortunately her aging mother can’t look after her, so she is living in the basement bedroom of her ex-husband and his new wife. Hilarious. Everyone seems to be insisting she get off the pain-killers, but she can’t figure out why. Finally, DC James Wingate provides her with information on a body found in the lake, which turns out to be a mannequin with information regarding a kidnapping. Okay, that’s a little confusing, and enough to get her back to work.
I just love this character!
