Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Review:

"In the pseudonymous Wolfe's lethargic third Hazel Micallef mystery (after 2010's The Taken), Hazel, a police detective in Port Dundas, Ont., looks into the death of hardware store owner Henry Wiest, found in the parking lot of a smoke shop on the Queesik Bay reserve, home of the Five Nations. At first, it appears Henry died as the result of anaphylactic shock by a wasp sting, but Hazel wonders why Wiest, a nonsmoker, was parked in the smoke shop's lot. The uncooperative Queesik Bay Police Service increases Hazel's misgivings, especially after she learns that Henry's death wasn't so natural and her team notices strange comings and goings at the Five Nations Casino. A casino/bordello hidden deep in the Canadian woods and a teenage girl bent on revenge against those she believes forced her into prostitution provide a much needed boost, but can't completely elevate the slow plot. Agent: Ellen Levine, Trident Literary." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:
