BEST one by far !!! I am a huge fan of The Sgt. Windflower Mystery series by Mike Martin and A Tangled Web is the sixth book in this series. If you are a fan of this series, like me, and you have been reading these books in order, like me, then I am sure, like me, you will feel that A Tangled Web is your favorite !!
Once you become a fan of a series, every time you can open a book you feel like you are going on a trip and visiting some family and friends. In the Sgt. Windflower Mystery series when you start reading a new book in the series, you go on a journey and meet new people along with visiting family and friends.
When you start reading A Tangled Web Windflower is recently married to the love of his life and they are expecting their first child. Windflower is a Sergeant in the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) and his wife, Sheila, happens to be the Mayor of their town. Between the two of them, they know everyone in their community and work together to make their town safe. Unfortunately they are unaware of the many secrets some members of their town have but when they find out, it could be too late.
First a 6-year old girl Molly is missing and Windflower and his crew race against the clock to find her alive. Little do they know that her disappearance was actually an innocent accident. Sadly though the person who discovers her has a criminal history and is actually on the run from the law and other criminals. In order to save himself and keep his connection to Molly a secret he has to kill another trucker.
Meanwhile in Windflower's little town of Grand Bank Windflower learns that Molly's mother has been a victim of domestic abuse for some time and ends up in the clinic. She does not want to press charges against her husband but it is out of her hands as the authorities take over and arrest her husband Brett.
All in a matter of a few days Molly is missing but found alive and her father, Brett, is found dead. While Windflower tries to piece everything together he finds that the puzzle is a lot bigger than they ever imagined and it involves more people than originally thought.
I love this series. I love Windflower and his devotion to his job, his community, family and friends. I love that he is now married to Sheila and they are having a baby. Having read the previous books in this series, I have watched Windflower grow and the love he has with Sheila is very inspiring. I love his committed to his Cree upbringing and enjoy reading about his smudging and praying technique and his dreams and interpreting them. I love the way he takes charge and is commanding on the job and the way he works through everything.
Mike Martin will spin your head around as you read these stories and especially with A Tangled Web the way he weaves the numerous storylines together and brings they around will amaze all readers. Even though it is a "web" you are never lost and have complete confidence in Martin and Windflower to bring everything together and make it all right in the end.
