This psychological mystery introduces David Morgan and Miranda Quin, two maverick and culturally sophisticated Toronto police detectives. When a man is found dead in a garden pond in the wealthy heart of Toronto's Rosedale neighbourhood Morgan is lead into speculations about Japanese ornamental koi fish, and Quin into a chilling sequence of revelations that could destroy her. But the real mystery begins not with the deceased but with a woman who walks onto the crime scene and without emotion declares herself to be the victim's mistress. From that point on everything changes, even the past.

This book could have been a good story but it was bogged down by information dumps. Reading Moss's biography on GoodReads, I was unsurprised to learn that he is an academic, because to me, it read a lot like having a conversation with an academic who is trying too hard to impress people, and yes, having spent too much time in academia, I have met too many of these people and had too many of these conversations. I am glad that I have never had one with Moss, though it felt like I did through this book. I will not be looking up any others in this series or by this author.

Commenting on "Still Waters" by John Moss although the description and photo here is apparently for "The Dells" by Michael Blair! (Please - bring back the librarians. Computers can't read.)

Convoluted mystery. First I've read in this series with Quin and Morgan. Some of it didn't come together, I thought, but I'm reading another in this series, "Still Waters" so will reserve final judgment.

I couldn't get past the first few chapters. I'm tired of these 'detective stories' that are more interested in the characters' sex lives than anything else.
