Description

A dangerous undercover assignment nearly puts Dion in his grave.

North Vancouver RCMP officers Leith and Dion have a gruesome new mystery lying at their feet. Up in the breezy heights of Paradise Road, a craftsman has been spiked to his lawn by his own artwork. Was it an aesthetics-fuelled feud with the neighbours? An enemy from the past? Or the most challenging of crimes to solve: a random attack?

Drawn into an offside mystery of his own, Dion befriends a young magician, who then seems to make herself disappear. But with the team closing in on the Paradise Road killer, he must put aside his personal dilemmas to take on the lead role in setting a trap for their volatile suspect. It’s a foolproof setup, but even the best laid plans can go awry, and this one leads him straight into a fight for his life.

Editorial Reviews

[R.M. Greenaway] has created a couple of cops who stand out in a crowded crime fiction field for their absorbing personas.

— Kingston Whig-Standard, for Flights and Falls

Five Ways to Disappear succeeds because Greenaway subordinates the internal personal and professional drama of the cops' relationships and never loses sight of the real human tragedy at the novel's core: the relationship between an aged arthritic social misfit and the great-grandson he hardly knows and didn't expect to love.

— BC BookLook

A brilliant read during dark times.

— Clothes Line Finds

The sixth in the B.C. Blues crime series is as crisply written and satisfying as its predecessors, but it's made especially interesting because we know who killed the artist right from the get-go ... We’re not merely observing the story; as witnesses to the murder, we’re participating in it.

— Booklist

Greenaway brings a keen understanding of love, loyalty, frailty, and greed to her multilayered series debut.

— Kirkus Reviews, for Cold Girl

... skillfully entwined into a satisfying skein of serendipitous coincidences. Those who prefer character-driven police procedurals will be rewarded.

— Publishers Weekly

This mystery has dark elements that contrast with the beautiful locale ... will please fans of the series.

— Library Journal
