The Walker on the Cape is the first book in the Sgt. Windflower Mystery series. The story begins when a man’s body is found on the Cape in a small fishing community. It looks to be a heart attack or a stroke, but the investigation leads to the news that the man was actually poisoned. To find out why, the RCMP assigns Sergeant Winston Windflower and his sidekick Eddie Tizzard are assigned the case. The two soon find that this small community has a lot of secrets and there are powerful people who want to keep them hidden. Despite that, Windflower also discovers something else he wasn’t expecting: he loves it here on the East Coast.

Another popular title in this series is called Fire, Fog and Water. This book sees the Grand Bank detachment of the RCMP being especially busy with a a homicide, a near-homicide and a fire all taking place in short order. Windflower feels that all of these cases are somehow connected, but is finding it difficult proving it. As he works to put the pieces together and solve the case, Windflower must deal with the devastating winter as well as his new power-hungry boss.
