    This was an excellent police procedural RCMP Inspector Coswell returns in the fourth and latest book in the series This is the first book I have read featuring Coswell, and it is a great stand alone novel of crime investigation, and hope to read the preceding three books soon Coswell is an older member of the RCMP, well respected for his investigative skills He is overweight and loves liquor and gourmet food He is becoming a hypochondriac, constantly researching medical conditions he worries he may have He has the help of a good friend, James, who is also a member of the RCMP Their conversations are humorous James is replaced early in the book by a female officer who left her former posting after some problems Coswell is having difficulties adjusting to a female partner and is suspicious of her competence The mystery begins at a medical facility in Vancouver Students are assembled to learn anatomy by dissecting cadavers The bodies are laid out under shrouds To everyone s horror one of the embalmed corpses has been replaced by that of a newly murdered and unpopular medical teacher There are many suspects a jealous co worker resenting this newcomer to the country and facility being promoted over him, an angry and alluring ex wife and her present lover, students who were insulted, degraded and failed by him and a dangerous criminal gang among others We follow all steps of the investigation, and the characters are well developed and intriguing Recommended for those who enjoy a well written police procedural.

    A good read that I liked a lot and I may have to say later You know 6 years is a long time to wait between books in a series but I really appreciate how Roy Innes has allowed Coswell to age and while he isn t quite as hilarious as he was in the first books in this series he still is quite a different type of investigator than those found in most police procedurals I really enjoyed his struggles with accepting his new partner, Janet Bostock, not to mention his diet and his self diagnosis of his supposed health problems and James is a superb character Tying the murders back to the Irish troubles made for a bit of a different feel but that along with the other events provided a somewhat weak motive but that didn t prevent a solid and satisfactory ending and low and behold all the cops lived happily ever after I just hope there s another one in this series and I don t have to wait 6 years for it cause I m pretty sure I ll never last that long.

    RCMP Inspector Croswell is back to solve his 4th crime in The Extra Cadaver Murder This series is, without doubt, one of the finest police procedurals written by a current Canadian author.A corpse is discovered on a slab beside a shrouded medical cadaver ready or not for a first year anatomy class The story unfolds with a traditional team, Inspector Coswell, thoughtful, settled and worried about memory loss and the fallout coming and Corporal Bostock, a female detective living under a political cloud And finally there s Coswell s past partner who knew how to keep his boos in a sweet place.Author, Roy Innes style is polished, thoughtful with the action complemented by insightful study of the characters They come alive, warts, fear and intellect Dialogue and sense of place are key to the plotting and pace Innes is a story teller who triggers your imagination with a mystery that makes you think and when the book is closed, you re than satisfied It s a series that grows on you and sets the stage for .Don Graves, Canadian Mystery Reviews
