About Me

Melfort, Saskatchewan, Canada
I am a lawyer in Melfort, Saskatchewan, Canada who enjoys reading, especially mysteries. Since 2000 I have been writing personal book reviews. This blog includes my reviews, information on and interviews with authors and descriptions of mystery bookstores I have visited. I strive to review all Saskatchewan mysteries. Other Canadian mysteries are listed under the Rest of Canada. As a lawyer I am always interested in legal mysteries. I have a separate page for legal mysteries. Occasionally my reviews of legal mysteries comment on the legal reality of the mystery. You can follow the progression of my favourite authors with up to 15 reviews. Each year I select my favourites in "Bill's Best of ----". As well as current reviews I am posting reviews from 2000 to 2011. Below my most recent couple of posts are the posts of Saskatchewan mysteries I have reviewed alphabetically by author. If you only want a sentence or two description of the book and my recommendation when deciding whether to read the book look at the bold portion of the review. If you would like to email me the link to my email is on the profile page.

Whodunit Mystery Bookstore?

I visited the Whodunit? mystery bookstore in Winnipeg on a lovely May day in 2010 while at the Rotary District Convention. Winding our way from downtown to 165 Lilac Street Sharon and I parked in front of the store. I was warmly welcomed when I entered the store. The store is crowded with a large selection of mysteries.
            While traveling I try to find authors from the city or area I am visiting when I go to a store. After browsing through the store I asked for recommendations on a mystery set in Winnipeg or Manitoba. After a few moments Armin Wiebe’s book Murder in the Gutenthal was suggested. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and exchanged emails with Armin. He advised the store is a short distance from his residence and said his late wife had done her best to keep the store in business. I appreciate booksellers who can recommend local authors.
            They also have a nice website located at http://www.whodunitcanada.com/home
and a newsletter with lots of reviews and author information.
I enjoyed my visit to the store and plan to go again on my next trip to Winnipeg.
