Some Things About Me by Ken Ogilvie

I began my fiction writing as a novice, but I had extensive writing experience in technical and policy areas, and I was a ferocious editor of staff reports at Pollution Probe. Novel writing would come naturally to me, or so I thought (incorrectly). I wrote half of a really crappy science-fiction book, and then struggled over whether to continue.  Read more here

Book Rationale

I wrote Her Dark Path because a couple of decades ago I was reading a mystery novel that I suddenly snapped shut and declared, rather too vehemently, “This book is crap! I could write a better one.”  Read more here

Sean’s Book Reviews

‘The plot of this book was very good and I couldn’t help but love where the story took place.  Being from Toronto this is close to my neck of the woods which is a unique read for me and I loved how they used the past and small town life to make this story really hit home.’  Read more here

Linda Strong Book Reviews

‘Overall, this new crime writer did a good job. Suspense at times is palpable. At one point in time, the good guys are chasing the bad guys, the bad guys are trying to erase all witnesses, the cops are chasing everyone, even the bad cops. I found during all this that I needed to breathe more.’

 The Quiet Geordie

‘Rebecca is a likeable character, and you immediately feel sympathy for her because she is made to feel so unwelcome. She is a determined person and has a plan to eventually solve her own mother’s murder by getting into the Homicide Squad, hence the decision to try to solve the mystery.’

The other character I immediately took to was Hound, the local gentle giant, who is one of the first people to speak to Rebecca. He’s sensitive and kind, as well as a reliable friend.

Her Dark Path by Ken Ogilvie

wooden boardwalk in dark forest

16 years ago Rebecca Bradley’s mother was murdered. Rebecca was only eight years old. The killer has never been caught. Growing up, Rebecca vowed that one day she would track him down and make him pay.

Now Rebecca is a young police woman in Ontario. She wants to become a homicide detective. Her first investigation is the cold case of a woman who vanished for 16 days and then was found dead in her own home. The brutal crime shocks the small Canadian town of Conroy.

The puzzling case has uncanny similarities to the murder of Rebecca’s mother. Both victims were found strangled in their own kitchens.

Can Rebecca keep her emotions together as she closes in on a killer with connections to her family and tragic past? And will she finally get justice for her mother?

Discover a new crime writer who will have you gripped till the pulsating end.
