Inside the Book


Buried Secrets

Author: Mike Martin
Publisher: Ottawa Press and Publishing
Pages: 285
Genre: Mystery




RCMP Sergeant Winston Windflower is at a crossroads as career opportunities intrude on his near-perfect life in the blustery paradise of Grand Bank, Newfoundland. Just as the pandemic ends, the little oceanside communities are rocked by the murders of prominent figures, an RCMP Staff Sergeant in St. John’s and a minister in Grand Bank, and it’s implied that there are national security implications to at least one crime. There’s also a sinister new character hanging around doing the parish’s dirty work. Windflower finds himself a primary investigator, balancing work, potential major changes, and life with a young family while seeking guidance from his ancestral teachings and dreams.

Are the crimes connected, and can Windflower and his team find the killer before they strike again? Even as the police work becomes more complicated and even dangerous, Sgt. Windflower finds time to enjoy his family, his friends and always some great food. Come back to Grand Bank for another great adventure in Sgt. Windflower Mysteries.

My Review

Buried Secrets follows RCMP Sergeant Winston Windflower in Grand Bank, Newfoundland. Just as the pandemic is winding down the little oceanside communities are rocked by the murders of prominent figures. This act of murder sends  RCMP Sergeant Winston Windflower on a new investigation as the national security implications require him to be on the case. I really enjoyed following Winston on this case as I really loved seeing him in investigation mode while also seeing him in a more family setting as well. This was a great read and I truly love this series!
