3 Reviews of Darkest Before the Dawn and a Holiday Sale Update


Three new great reviews came in for Darkest Before the Dawn, the new Sgt. Windflower Mystery. Links are below.

Linda Grant in The Crafty Gardener


“The series is about Winston Windflower, an RCMP officer, who is stationed in Grand Banks, Newfoundland.  It is not just a mystery book centered in the police office but a book that shares the quiet side of Winston.   You will love reading about his family, his pets, his friends, his co-workers, and the people he encounters in his life away from his job.”

Harold Walters in The Clarenville Packet

(reprinted in Western Star, Southern Gazette and other Newfoundland and Labrador newspapers)


“Mike Martin pens a cracker-jack image of capelin rolling: a silver tsunami … swimming near the top of the water as tens of thousands of capelin tried to get in to spawn on the beach.”

Jim Fisher in The Miramichi Reader


“When it comes to writing about police work, Mr. Martin excels, particularly at demonstrating Windflower’s keen skills when he interrogates the murder suspects in addition to handling the various day-to-day duties of running the Grand Bank RCMP detachment.”

Update on the 6th Annual Windflower Holiday Book Sale.
