Pequena biografia
On January 1, 1981, Mark Zuehlke walked away from a journalism career to pursue magazine and book writing fulltime. He has never looked back. In 1992, Mark published his first book—Magazine Writing From the Boonies (co-authored with Louise Donnelly)—and now concentrates almost exclusively on writing of books.

Fascinated by Canada’s military heritage, Mark first set to writing about the role Canadians played in World War II after discussing the Battle of Ortona with several veterans in a Royal Canadian Legion following a Remembrance Day Ceremony in Kelowna, B.C. Discovering no book had been written on this pivotal battle, Mark decided to fill that gap. Ortona: Canada’s Epic World War II Battle was the result. The book’s success encouraged him to develop The Canadian Battle Series, which documents the Canadian World War II experience and has resulted in his being declared by Jack Granatstein as the nation’s leading popular military historian.

Mark is also an award winning mystery writer, whose popular Elias McCann series has garnered much critical praise. Set in storm-swept west coast Vancouver Island village of Tofino, the series follows the investigations of reluctant community coroner Elias McCann. Hands Like Clouds, the debut title in this series, won the Crime Writers of Canada’s Arthur Ellis Award for the 2000 Best First Novel and the third instalment, Sweep Lotus, was nominated for the 2004 Arthur Ellis Best Novel.

When not writing, this Victoria, British Columbia resident can often be found tinkering around the Fernwood heritage house he shares with partner and fellow writer Frances Backhouse. He enjoys hiking, backpacking, cycling, kayaking, travelling, and cooking.

Excellent except that he refers to artillery as .75 millimeter or .88 millimeter when they should be 75-millimeter and 88-millimeter.

As coroner in Tofino on Vancouver Island, Elias McCann is called out to the body of an anti-logging activist found hanging from a tree. Although the police are eager to rule it a suicide, Elias is not convinced.

This book caught my eye because it is set near where a friend lives. The location descriptions are good, and the backstories of Elias and his girlfriend Vhanna are intriguing and well done, but the actual story is just plain dull. It wasn't so bad that I felt a DNF was justified, but by the time I got to the climactic drive through difficult terrain to foil the bad guy's plans, I just didn't care.… (mais)
