A Maxine Benson Mystery

by John Reynolds

tagged: women sleuths, crime, police procedural
Description

It's almost summer in small town Port Ainslie. Or is it? Temperatures are so far below normal that Police Chief Maxine Benson and her team are wearing sweaters. But is it cold enough to freeze the body of the man found in a ditch on the outskirts of town one morning? Maxine starts to investigate, but she is elbowed aside by the mostly-male provincial police force so she takes charge on her own. Soon she's visiting the victim's cold-hearted widow, tracking the widow's mysterious brother, and confronting the killer alone in a tract of forest. Will Maxine's skills solve this twisting tale of a case?

Editorial Reviews

"This second Maxine Benson mystery takes a few interesting turns and…Max satisfyingly puts the provincial police in their place through her competence and spirited determination…Hand to readers interested in female detectives or small-town mysteries."

— Booklist

"Reynolds' murder mystery is a well-crafted, fun jaunt through a fictional Muskoka (Port Carling) backdrop. The narrative combines the traditional murder mystery with more current creative twists… On the whole, Murder Below Zero would be a great choice for any reader looking for an interesting, suspenseful story that has a neat and tidy ending. Highly Recommended."
