I read the first mystery in the series, Hands Like Clouds, in which McCann works to solve the death of an ecological protester during the controversy of logging in the Clayoquot Sound area. In real life there have been major issues over how much more logging should be done in the relatively few areas of
not heavily logged already. I found Mark had vivid characterizations and created a decent plot. I would buy him again. British Columbia
For anyone interested in military histories I can certainly recommend his non-fiction works. He writes in an engaging populist style covering battles and campaigns of the Canadian military.
He has a website located at http://www.zuehlke.ca/.
I met Mark at an author event in Melfort when we still had a bookstore. He has an engaging personality and is well worth going to see if he is at an event in your area. He readily answered all questions and was willing to discuss issues raised by his books. Because of the concentration of books in military history his author appearances are likely to be publicized as military history events.
His website indicates a 4th book in the McCann series is being written.
A reader looking for a contemporary mystery set in rugged country will enjoy Mark.
