9781770410435: The Drowned Man: A Peter Cammon Mystery

Cammon crosses the Atlantic in this clever whodunnit In this second mystery featuring Chief Inspector Peter Cammon, the veteran detective is called out of retirement once again. His assignment appears simple: travel to Canada to retrieve the body of a murdered Scotland Yard colleague. But Peter cannot resist delving into the oddities of the crime. His colleague was brutally attacked, run down by a car, and then dumped in a canal, yet the probable motive for the murder is bizarre: the theft of three letters from the U.S. Civil War era, one of them signed by the assassin John Wilkes Booth. Haunting the investigation is the beautiful Alice Nahri, girlfriend of the dead man. The Drowned Man reacquaints readers with characters from Walking into the Ocean as well as features Maddy, Peter’s daughter-in-law, whose amateur sleuthing back in England proves pivotal in cracking the case.

About the Author :

David Whellams is a writer in criminal law with 30 years of experience, amending criminal code in such areas as dangerous offenders and terrorism. He is the author of "Walking into the Ocean." He lives in Ottawa, Ontario.

Review :

"Whellams has not just created an interesting detective; he has the ability to fashion many complex characters without resorting to outlandish eccentricities. Readers will be hard pressed to solve either crime before Cammon, though the opportunity is there."  —After Hitchcock


"[T]he plot builds to a dramatic and suspenseful climax. The author's refreshingly clear-eyed portrayal of his hero ("Peter Cammon felt superior to psychology, in the way that many people do who have never studied it") is a plus."  —Publishers Weekly

"Whellams's sophomore entry (after Walking into the Ocean) sweeps the reader away with its elaborate plot, insightful observations about human character, and genuine spy adventure. This title can be read as a stand-alone, but take my word for it, this is a series to follow particularly for Louise Penny fans and the Masterpiece Mystery set." —Library Journal (March 2013, *Starred Review*)

“Tightly plotted and featuring a lead character who keeps us glued to the page, the book should definitely suit readers looking for an intriguing lead character and a solid mystery.” —David Pitt, Booklist Online

“Author David Whellams fields crisp yet compassionate dialogue that puts the reader inside Cammon's struggle to adjust to a personal life again after a long career in which it went to seed. Whellams brilliantly captures volleys of danger and suspense that penetrate the fog hanging over the ex-detective's life. Detective Cammon's retirement makes for a book to enjoy.”—Don Graves, Hamilton Spectator

“The hero, retired chief inspector Peter Cammon of Scotland Yard, is back and again is a highly likable character with the kind of instincts we admire in the best fictional detectives.”—Patrick Davitt, Waterloo Region Record

“Whellams handles these diverse threads with aplomb . . . The Drowned Man is a propulsive, sharply considered read.” —Quill & Quire
