Sam Wiseman runs an independent bookstore near McGill University
in the heart of Montreal. His existence is untroubled and his
relationships are steady - until the day he stops a shoplifter. Out
of this seemingly innocent incident, Sam becomes friends with
Gaston Lemieux, a police detective with a great affection for
nineteenth-century British novels.
The friendship comes into play when Sam discovers the body of
professor Harold Hilliard - a long-time customer of the store -
dead in his office at McGill. Sam is implicated in the murder when
it is discovered that the victim is clutching a special order form
from Sam's store in what clearly is an attempt to reveal the
identity of his murderer.
Part police-procedural and part cozy mystery, That Sleep of
Death introduces a new sleuth to the Canadian murder-mystery scene
- one whose continuing presence will be anticipated and enjoyed for
mysteries to come.
