"West End Murders features two cops just trying to cope with their stress-filled lives: They're likable, trying to do their job, screw up on occasion and piss off their superiors with a degree of regularity. Inspector Coswell has a weakness for good food and great wine. His partner, Corporal Blakemore, gets his pleasures elsewhere.
Author Roy Innes places them into a well-plotted, energetically paced, realistic setting that keeps you turning pages, relating to their charms and foibles and taking away a full measure of entertainment.
West End Murders is a sequel to Murder in the Monashees and offers every indication of a series that could place Coswell and Blakemore with any of the famous crime-fighting duos that come to mind.
The novel is set in Vancouver, in the grip of a wave of gay-related hate crime. The politics escalate and Coswell finds himself stickhandling by a persistent and devious press, accommodating interforce rivalry and dealing with a troubling negative image in the eyes of the giant neighbour to the south.
Innes writes with a straight-ahead storytelling acumen of a seasoned veteran of police procedures. Characters take action, reflect and face challenges in a manner that exposes their strengths, flaws and desires.
West End Murders is on my 2008 must-read list for a strong reason: its potential to become an enduring Canadian series."--Don Graves, Hamilton Spectator
About the Author
ROY INNES is a retired eye physician and surgeon whose penchant for the arts, buried for years in the world of science, was rekindled upon retirement. His first novel, Murder in the Monashees, was released in 2005; Inspector Coswell's exploits continued in 2008 with West End Murders. Innes is an avid hunter, a lover of classical music, and, despite his skinny frame, a gourmand. He lives on British Columbia's lush Gabriola Island with his wife Barrie and his daughter's cat.
