A Door in the River

A Hazel Micallef Mystery

Inger Ash Wolfe

"Wolfe convincingly lays claim to a new mantle as a first-rate crime writer. A bracingly original mystery series from the pseudonymous Wolfe."—Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

Stinging deaths aren't uncommon in the summertime, but when Henry Wiest turns up stung to death at an Indian reservation, Detective Hazel Micallef senses not all is as it seems.  And when it turns out the "bee" was a diabolical teenaged girl on a murder spree with a strange weapon, a dark and twisted crime begins to slowly emerge.  The questions, contradictions, and bodies begin to mount, as two separate police forces struggle to work together to save the soul of Westmuir County.

Inger Ash Wolfe is the pseudonym for the American-born Canadian novelist Michael Redhill. He is also the author of The Calling and The Taken.
