Death In Cold Type
Newspaper reporter Leo Fabian doesnít think of himself as an opportunist. But when the object of his desire, Stevie Lord, loses the object of her desire to murder, he finds a whole new way to penetrate a womanís heart. Who would want to kill Michael Rossiter anyway? Scion of an old Winnipeg newspaper family, he may have been rich, but he didnít really seem to have enemies. But as Leo delves deeper into the circumstances surrounding Michaelís death, he learns some surprising things about his friend that quite possibly led to his demise. Michaelís brutal fate mires Leo in a case that comes to embroil his fellow reporters at the Winnipeg Citizen, including troubled feature writer Liz Elliot, volatile lifestyle editor Guy Clark, and Michaelís narcissistic sister Merritt Parrish, whom Michael has tried to help get back on the straight and narrow. One of his oldest friends, Axel Werner, also becomes involved and, of course, Stevie, the woman Leo loves. The past intrudes in new and disturbing ways. Old scandals cast long shadows and long-ago deaths take on frightening implications. From old-money Crescentwood to a new-money mall, from the Citizenís dilapidated newsroom to a peaceful prairie retreat, Leo follows a complex trail of clues, until he not only knows, but knows he has only moments to thwart another brutal murder.

This entertaining mystery centers around a newspaper, the Winnipeg Citizen. Told by different narrators, the story begins with the murder of the son of a former owner of the paper. The reporters and the police compete to find the killer. Newsroom politics affect almost all the players. In the process, old scandals are uncovered which may still have consequences in the present. The narrators are generally likeable but somewhat troubled individuals. For someone living in the US, at least in Maryland, the freedom with which people smoke indoors is startling. One tiny correction: Baltimore is the largest city in Maryland, but not actually the capitol: that is Annapolis. I also wonder: in 2005, weren't cell or mobile phones pretty common in Canada. I enjoyed the book and generally recommend it to lovers of amateur sleuth mysteries. (Or should reporters be considered amateurs?)
