Intrepid coroner Bern Fortin faces murder and secrets in small town British Columbia in a debut novel already recognized by the Crime Writers of Canada (CWC).

When respected ex--Canadian Forces commander Bern Fortin cuts short his military career to take a job as the coroner for a small mountain town in the heart of BC, he's hoping to leave the past behind. Bern's looking forward to a quiet life, but the memories of what he witnessed during his stints in Afghanistan and other war-torn countries haunt him still.

When the body of one of the workers is found floating in the huge bottle-washing tank at the local brewery, Bern is called in for a routine investigation. What first appears to be a tragic accident takes a menacing turn when the body of the worker's girlfriend is discovered in a nearby field. Bern needs the help of brewery safety investigator Evie Chapelle, who, burdened by tragedies she might have prevented, is more determined than ever to keep her workers, and their tight-knit community, safe. Soon, Bern and Evie find themselves risking their jobs--and their lives--to uncover a killer hiding in a place where it is awfully hard to keep a secret.

Deryn Collier's debut novel is a taut mystery full of suspense. Confined Space was shortlisted for the Arthur Ellis Award for best unpublished first crime novel by the Crime Writers of Canada.

I had real hopes for this book because she's a good writer and the story sounded interesting but... within 140-150 pages you learn that a person has accidentally died in a small brewery in a small town and nobodies organizing a funeral rather they are having a pot luck to get beyond the accident? Not very credible. I think the mystery genre can reveal lots about human beings and history and provide entertainment but this book didn't do much of that. Darn!
