Innocent scapegoat or monster manipulator? Matthew Fraser was an idealistic young teacher accused of molesting a young schoolgirl and acquitted in a sensational case that left the truth hidden and the young teacher's life in tatters. Ten years later, his distraught confidante walks into Ottawa Police Inspector Michael Green's office insisting that Fraser has vanished. Green's curiosity is piqued when he discovers that Fraser left behind his beloved dog, a half-eaten dinner and an apartment crammed with research related to his case. Has Fraser fled to escape the wrath of victims, new or old? Or was he innocent all along and spent the last ten years trying to clear his name? And who is Fraser's mysterious email correspondent with the user name Mistwalker?

Mist Walker,which is set in Ottawa, is the third book in the Inspector Green series. The plot begins with a missing person and transforms into a murder investigation linked to a past case of pedaphilia involving a teacher. The story is about the continuing corrosive affect on people's lives that the child molestation case brings to the innocent and guilty alike. As in the other Green narratives, the reader is caught up in conflicting evidence and changing interpretations of past events as more information is revealed. Green's family play larger roles in this volume as his spouse, Sharon, becomes involved in the case through her work as a psychiatric nurse and there is an introduction of his estranged and rebellious teenage daughter Hannah, who was living on the West Coast with his ex-wife, and who has now decided to come to Ottawa. Green, battered physically and emotionally, works his way towards the truth of the events as can the reader.

Very readable and very descriptive. Geographical references are accurately described, and plausibly used. A good storyline, not great but could not put this book down until finished reading it, just to see how the author resolved the twists and turns presented. Well done murder(s) mystery.
