Book Detail

The Brother of Sleep

Farran Mackenzie couldn’t have been more surprised when Alison Perry walked into her University of Waterloo office.  It had been thirty years since she had last seen her best friend in high school, and thirty years since her best friend’s father, a police officer, had been killed in the line of duty.  And now Alison was asking for help in discovering who had really killed her father.

Farran has doubts about helping her long-lost friend.  A lifetime has passed since Alison walked out of her life with no explanation but doubt fades when a car bomb results in the death of Sergeant Perry’s old partner, nearly killing Alison and Farran, as well.  Someone obviously doesn’t want them to dig up old skeletons, so Farran takes them to the only place she feels save ─ the St. Lawrence Seaway.  But the past keeps catching up with them there, too.  A fated meeting in the local cemetery with Paul Vaughn, a police officer from Newfoundland, has Farran revisiting the origins of the St. Lawrence Seaway, a journey that turned her own life upside down only a year ago, and threatens to do so again.  She feels a strange attraction to Paul, whose life seems to mirror her own, but what about Jerry Strauss, the OPP inspector to whom she owes so much?  Too many police officers in her life, both past and present, and too many coincidences.  Farran’s heart if playing havoc with her instincts, which could prove dangerous, if not deadly.  Whom can she trust?  And is the truth worth the price of knowing?

    “Maggie Wheeler has made her characters and situation come alive as they wait for their homes and businesses to be destroyed along with everything they know. This is an interesting mix of history and present-day mystery: a fascinating book about a vanished past.”

    As a mystery novel, it is more than just ‘a good read’, it is absolutely riveting. As an historical account, Wheeler has certainly done her homework. As literature, Wheeler’s style and choice of language, nuanced to the history of the Seaway, should please even the severest of critics.”
