This psychological mystery introduces David Morgan and Miranda Quin, two maverick and culturally sophisticated Toronto police detectives. When a man is found dead in a garden pond in the wealthy heart of Toronto's Rosedale neighbourhood Morgan is lead into speculations about Japanese ornamental koi fish, and Quin into a chilling sequence of revelations that could destroy her. But the real mystery begins not with the deceased but with a woman who walks onto the crime scene and without emotion declares herself to be the victim's mistress. From that point on everything changes, even the past.

JOHN MOSS is the author of two dozen books, including Invisible Among the Ruins: Field Notes of a Canadian in Ireland and Being Fiction, a collection of short stories.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Still Waters Tries too hard in beginning to be esoteric. Main characters are knowable but their personalities can be revealed in subsequent novels of the series not all at once

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great title! Loved the mystery! It builds to an unexpected ending. Quin and Morgan have a fascinating relationship. They are believable and likeable, wonderfully witty and engaging but can also display another darker side. The author's amazing descriptions of places, things and people will take you away!
