Ottawa Homicide Inspector Michael Green is absolutely obsessed with his job, a condition which has almost ruined his marriage several times. When the biggest case of his career comes up, his position, his relationships and several lives are put into grave danger. A young graduate student and scion of a rich family is found expertly stabbed in the stacks of a university library, but no one seems to have the slightest idea why. But as Green probes into the circumstances of the young man's life, a tangled web of jealousy and intrigue is revealed. Green finds himself in the middle of a rivalry in the delicate arena of university politics, where gigantic egos regularly collide. Was it the diligent but socially inept researcher, or the macho ladies-man golden boy of the laboratory? Or was it a crime of passion involving the over-protective family of his beautiful new girlfriend? When the murderer strikes again, Green realizes that he must waste no time in solving the case, no matter what the consequences may be.

This was a good read; lots of Ottawa scenery and action, but also the book kept you intrigued as the plot thickened. I tried to pin point the murderer, but failed. A good ending to tie up the story.

The first book in the Inspector Green series, the author skillfully presents the storyline and then twists the individual suspects around the available clues creating a pool of possible perpetrators. There is enough information for readers to have a reasonable chance to solve the murders but part of the enjoyment is to have one's speculations change as more evidence is revealed.
