A Twist of Fortune
by Mike Martin
Mystery/Crime

The small town of Grand Bank in southeast Newfoundland, at the very eastern tip of Canada is in crisis. Their largest employer and a link to the glorious past, the fish plant is closing. Sgt. Winston Windflower’s personal life is also in crisis since his longtime girlfriend, Sheila Hillier is leading a community protest to try and stop the closure. It may be too late for the fish plant, but is it too late for Windflower and Sheila?

If that isn’t enough, they are being buried in snow and an epidemic of prescription drug abuse that is creating major problems for people and the police who patrol the area. An accidental death on a snow-covered highway leads only to more questions and more problems for Sgt. Windflower and the RCMP to resolve.

A Twist of Fortune is the fourth book in the Sgt. Windflower Mystery Series and it continues the adventures of Sgt. Windflower as he tries to solve crime and experience the joy and the sadness of life in a small Newfoundland community. Follow along as he feels the sometimes bitter taste of an east coast winter and the unique culinary delights of this part of the world. This story is like the weather in Newfoundland. It can twist and turn at any time.

The Sgt. Windflower Mystery Series is set in small fishing communities on the southeast coast of Newfoundland on the easternmost tip of Canada. They feature RCMP Sgt. Winston Windflower, a Cree from Northern Alberta who fights crime, solves murders and tries to have a good time doing it. There are now four books in the series: The Walker on the Cape, The Body on the T, Beneath the Surface and now A Twist of Fortune.

All of the books provide information and history about the local area that has been populated by fisherman from all over the world since the 1600s. They also highlight the culture, customs and food of Newfoundland which Windflower learns to love and enjoy as much as the locals. He also finds the love of his life and a place where he can feel at home.

The series has been compared to some British mysteries like Hamish MacBeth and A Touch of Frost. It has also been optioned for TV.

  1. I’m commenting, but not for the chance to win a free copy of the book, even though it sounds marvelous! I’d like Mike to contact me privately regarding that blurb above… 🙂 I have a proposition for him.

    adirondackediting(at)aol.com If you’re concerned I’m not legit, check with Chris at TSRA first. 😀

  2. I have read two of the series and enjoyed them immensely! Mike Martin is a talented and creative author! I look forward to reading the next two books in the series. Best wishes for much success, Mike! Keep writing!! Blessings!
