Silence Invites the Dead
[a Myles Sterling Mystery]Book - 2005
Scott Miller_s hard-boiled and principled protagonist, Myles Sterling, is a complex lead character who is blazing a new trail for mystery readers through Canadian crime drama.Miller_s suspenseful prose teases the imagination in a story where everyone becomes a suspect - until they wind up dead. The characters are as diverse as they are interesting: from an eccentric albino artist, to the Cree policeman who patrols the wild north. Layering the dimensions of northern politics and ethical dilemmas, Miller sets the stage for greed, power, and revenge. This is a skilful debut to a new "Detective"series.
