A Murder for Max

Orca Book Publishers | Maxine Benson Mystery


Escaping the pressures of big-city policing, Maxine Benson is happy to be appointed police chief in the resort town of Port Ainslie. Max's biggest challenge is to overcome skepticism at her ability to deal with major crimes—like the murder of Billy Ray Edwards.

Few people mourn Billy Ray's passing. He was a bully and was also intent on derailing the biggest development project in the town's history. But murder's murder, and Max is ready to solve it on her own and prove her worth to the townspeople. And maybe even to herself.

Murder Below Zero

Orca Book Publishers | Maxine Benson Mystery


It's almost summer in small town Port Ainslie. Or is it? Temperatures are so far below normal that Police Chief Maxine Benson and her team are wearing sweaters. But is it cold enough to freeze the body of the man found in a ditch on the outskirts of town one morning? Maxine starts to investigate, but she is elbowed aside by the mostly-male provincial police force so she takes charge on her own. Soon she's visiting the victim's cold-hearted widow, tracking the widow's mysterious brother, and confronting the killer alone in a tract of forest. Will Maxine's skills solve this twisting tale of a case?

"Reynolds' murder mystery is a well-crafted, fun jaunt through a fictional Muskoka (Port Carling) backdrop. The narrative combines the traditional murder mystery with more current creative twists… On the whole, Murder Below Zero would be a great choice for any reader looking for an interesting, suspenseful story that has a neat and tidy ending. Highly Recommended."

---

"This second Maxine Benson mystery takes a few interesting turns and…Max satisfyingly puts the provincial police in their place through her competence and spirited determination…Hand to readers interested in female detectives or small-town mysteries."

Murder Among the Pines

Orca Book Publishers | Maxine Benson Mystery


Small-town police chief Maxine "Max" Benson is just settling into her new life when her ex appears on the scene. Apparently, he and his new young lover just happen to be visiting her area on holiday. Max left her marriage and the Toronto police to become chief in Port Ainslie, where she runs a three-person department with few problems and enjoys a different pace of life. That's all about to change when Max's ex-husband is accused of killing his young lover right in Max's own backyard. It seems that only Max's superior detection abilities can save him from an almost certain conviction.

This is the third book in the Maxine Benson mystery series.
