Librarian Reviews

Nothing to Lose (A Robyn Hunter Mystery)

Norah McClintock is rated as one of Canada’s best mystery writers. Her tightly plotted and realistic stories have won numerous awards and she recently proved equally adept at writing for the high-interest, low-vocabulary reader with two books in the Orca Soundings series (Tell and Bang). Her new Robyn Hunter series promises to be as popular as the Chloe and Levesque books and the Mike and Riel series. In the third book, Robyn and her friends start out helping injured birds in the streets of downtown Toronto and end up embroiled in the world of people-smuggling and “snakeheads.”
