Andrew Dutfield – Death at the Point

Some see outsized beauty where others see only bleakness, like the sweeping landscape of Hecla Island, situated two hours north of Winnipeg. Death at the Point is largely set in this real-life area with Icelandic roots that originally lured Henry Trevellyn and his wife Julia to its rocky shores as a weekend respite. An émigré from London and now a retired member of the Winnipeg Police services Major Crimes Unit, he alternates his time between volunteering in Winnipeg and relaxing in the unspoilt tranquility of island life. When a tall, red-headed stranger appears on the island and soon after a body is found, Henry’s investigative skills kick back into gear. His once carefree days become mired in mystery and danger as Henry is consumed by a series of unsolved crimes that lead him to discover the island’s dark past.

Content warning: There is some violence, injury, and death, as the murder mystery thriller genre designation implies. However, while an essential aspect of the plot, it is not particularly graphic.
