There is a murder here, no question, but readers craving a whodunit should look elsewhere: The real mystery is why Maria, a pleasant, placid housewife, abandoned her family for seven years. Who was sending her money and photographs of her daughter all that time? And why did Maria come home?
These questions are nagging at Sergeant Karl Alberg, even as Cassandra Mitchell, Alberg's longtime companion, is doing some nagging of her own he had promised, after all, to hang up his policeman's hat. As always in this series, the great pleasure is in the intricate interplay of the personalities, especially nuanced in Mother Love. Not surprisingly, the book won Wright her second Arthur Ellis award for Best Novel of the Year, and was the first mystery novel ever to win the Canadian Authors' Association Literary Prize for Fiction.
