    Another good Canadian author - about a Detective in Ottawa. Funny reading about places you know and can follow them on the streets.

    A well-crafted police procedural HONOUR AMONG MEN is a Canadian police procedural, a tightly woven tale of threads drawn from a number of disparate skeins – a bar brawl and subsequent murder in a sleazy pub in Halifax; the subsequent murder of the victim’s girlfriend in Ottawa and the attempted murder of one of the investigating detectives; the disappearance of a homeless woman who witnessed the murder; police politics; power politics and a Canadian election; military camaraderie; and PTSD and Ca A well-crafted police procedural HONOUR AMONG MEN is a Canadian police procedural, a tightly woven tale of threads drawn from a number of disparate skeins – a bar brawl and subsequent murder in a sleazy pub in Halifax; the subsequent murder of the victim’s girlfriend in Ottawa and the attempted murder of one of the investigating detectives; the disappearance of a homeless woman who witnessed the murder; police politics; power politics and a Canadian election; military camaraderie; and PTSD and Canada’s peacekeeping mission in Serbia and Croatia during the break-up of former Yugoslavia. Having lived in both Ottawa and Petawawa and having visited Halifax on a number of occasions, I can attest to the accuracy of the local geography both as to look and cultural feel. As a character, Inspector Green is credible, warm, intelligent, and completely human … right down to his near brush with the possibility of an adulterous encounter with a very attractive, intelligent female out-of-town colleague! His on-again, off-again successes and failures at communication with a surly teenage daughter are fascinating. Brava to Barbara Fradkin who has added another go-to series to the growing canon of modern Canadian crime novels. Definitely recommended. Paul Weiss

    Barbara Fradkin certainly has a dark side, as evidenced by this installment of the Inspector Green series. A violent murder traces back to a peacekeeping mission in Kosovo, a suicide of one of the UN peacekeepers, a subsequent unsolved murder, political intrigue, military involvement and a police detective brutally assaulted all combine to make this a fast read and well-thought out book with twists and turns to keep the reader glued to the page. Warning: There are some explicitly brutal scenes i Barbara Fradkin certainly has a dark side, as evidenced by this installment of the Inspector Green series.

Warning: There are some explicitly brutal scenes in this book. If you are sensitive to images created in stories, you might want to think twice about reading this or at the very least, not read it right before bed....

    A young woman, evidently hard-drinking and possibly a prostitute, is found by the Canal at the opening of Honour Among Men, Barbara Fradkin's fifth Inspector Green novel, but it soon becomes clear that her death is far more complicated than that characterization might suggest. Inspector Green's investigation leads him first to Halifax, Nova Scotia, and then to Petawawa, the Canadian Forces military base not far from Ottawa; the investigation also leads back in time to the break-up of Yugoslavia A young woman, evidently hard-drinking and possibly a prostitute, is found by the Canal at the opening of Honour Among Men, Barbara Fradkin's fifth Inspector Green novel, but it soon becomes clear that her death is far more complicated than that characterization might suggest. Inspector Green's investigation leads him first to Halifax, Nova Scotia, and then to Petawawa, the Canadian Forces military base not far from Ottawa; the investigation also leads back in time to the break-up of Yugoslavia and the UN peacekeeping mission there in the early 1990s. When one of his own officers is critically injured in the course of the investigation, Inspector Green must summon all his resources and intelligence to out-think the killer, who is leaving a growing pile of bodies in his wake.... Inspector Green is one of the more interesting protagonists in crime fiction today: not altogether likeable, but driven by his sense of justice and able to use his intuition to see beyond the obvious to finally attain the truth. This particular novel in the series focuses on military matters and how Canadians perceive their role in the international "peace-keeping" community, which was quite fascinating. And, of course, the story itself is well-plotted and fairly clued, always of paramount importance in a crime novel! I enjoy Fradkin's writing style and her psychological insights into the way different people think, and this novel was no exception. As ever, it's always better to have read a series in chronological order, but it's not entirely required in order to understand what is going on in this series. Recommended.

    Barbara Fradkin goes from strength to strength in her novels. Canada has many good mystery writers and she is among the best. I like the Ottawa setting (although Green heads east in order to solve this crime), and the plot involving Canada's peace-keeping troops works very well indeed. I believe this one received a best crime novel of the year award – and richly deserves it. Barbara Fradkin goes from strength to strength in her novels.

    From the first novel i already fell in love with mike and brian, i admire his relationship to sharon. This one as expected had a lot of characters and twist unexpected. It was a nice read, to satisfy my mystery novel fix

    worth reading Good story, brings you along on an interesting journey but the end is odd. Not sure if they found the mastermind behind the murders or not.
