Barbara Fradkin

Barbara Fradkin is a psychologist with a fascination for how we turn bad. Her short stories haunt numerous publications and have received four Arthur Ellis Best Short Story nominations. However, she is best known for her gritty novels featuring the impetuous Ottawa Police Inspector Michael Green, whose passion for justice often conflicts with family, friends and police protocol. The series debuted with Do or Die in 2000 and has won back-to-back Arthur Ellis Best Novel Awards for Fifth Son and Honour Among Men. The seventh book in the series, This Thing of Darkness, was released in the autumn of 2009. It begins when a retired psychiatrist with a controversial treatment approach is mugged on the streets of Ottawa. More information is available at
