About the Author

One of Sandra Ruttan's most painful childhood memories is of her mom driving her and her sister to the town dump, and her stuffed white lamb being pried from her arms and tossed in the garbage. She was a walking disaster in her formative years. At age eight she was hit by a car while riding her bike home and her head was cut open. Just before her ninth birthday she was running along the beach and landed on broken glass, and her foot was partially severed. The muscle had to be stitched back together, leaving some uncertainty about whether she'd walk again, and the doctor was so fed up with her screaming he told her if she didn't shut up he'd cut her foot off. She went to school with the doctor's son, and forever felt sorry for him.

After her tenth birthday she fell down a waterfall and almost drowned. Her later adventures have included being in Seville when they found 4.5 tons of explosives set to blow up the Semana Santa parade and being in a car crash in the Sahara Desert. There is absolutely no explanation for how she's managed to stay alive as long as she has. Keep up to date at her website, www.sandraruttan.com or http://sruttan.wordpress.com/

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Part I of this newest entry in the Canadian Constables series had me feeling somewhat at a disadvantage, referring as it does in large part to events that took place three years in the past, including a serial killer investigation which continues to haunt the three protagonists. When the dead body of a young girl is discovered, it appears to follow the pattern of that killer's victims, and the horrors which they had tried to bury from that earlier time are suddenly, and sickeningly, revived.

Complicating the current investigation is the fact that the man everyone was convinced was the killer is dead, and another man still in prison. Or did they get it wrong the first time? The three constables, Craig Nolan, Ashlyn Hart, and "Red" Tain, who have a history from what was dubbed the earlier Missing Killer investigation, are joined in the present search, the latter two having been called in for that purpose. At the same time, there is a hunt going on for a man who apparently murdered his estranged wife and three children, only increasing the pressure on all involved.

Things become somewhat clearer in Part II and beyond [and even in the brief prologue], which brings the reader variously back in time from three years ago to eighteen months ago, back to the present, and back again. I have to admit I nearly got whiplash from the sharp shifts in time frame. As well, often the identity of the main person in a given scene wasn't immediately clear to me, at first being referred to only as "he," likewise proving a distraction.

Each of the protagonists has his or her own personal baggage, much of it inter-connected, although I would have preferred to have all of that more fully fleshed out.

This is a fast moving mystery. Shifts from present day to 3 years ago to 18 months ago. At first it was a little distracting, but it didn't take long before I was immersed in the case of the Missing Killer.

Years ago, the Missing Killer was so named because no one ever found the bodies of young girls until they showed up a year or so late ... dead. The killer was caught and killed and his accomplice put away.

Present day ... 3 cops intertwined in 2 separate cases, which dovetail into one. The bodies of young girls ..and their babies... are now being found. So maybe the Missing Killer wasn't caught???

This is a new author to me, second of three in a series. Lots of back and forth, as I previously mentioned, lots of personal back story of the three cops. It was entertaining, several twists. But I was actually more enthralled with the personal lives and how they interacted.

The end of The Frailty of Flesh was so depressing. This book isn't lighthearted, but I was glad to get the background on the first case the three characters worked on together. The author blended the plots from the first two books very well for the plot for this third book. I really like all of these characters, so I look forward to finding out what happens next. I love that nothing is predictable in Ruttan's novels!

This was a pretty good book even though I was a little confused when it went back and forth from the present to the past. I sometimes got some of the characters mixed up. It was difficult to feel empathy for the characters as they were not fleshed out well.

As much as I hate giving only one star felt all I could do. Too many jumps to past to keep characters straight. Ending sucked. Good premise. But disjointed. Reader should feel empathy or sympathy. All I felt was frustration.

I have read all of Sandra Ruttan's books. They contain and maintain the characters relationships while solving crimes. There are layers to her story lines and writing and are always intriguing.

I'm enjoying following Ruttan's characters in this series, and their interactions. The use of past, present, and future is an interesting way to develop the plot. Ready for more...
