The Canary List by Sigmund Brouwer finds Crockett Grey or Mr. G as Jamie calls him mourning the anniversary of his daughter Ashley’s death. This being the one-day every year that Crockett allows himself to drink himself into oblivion. However, he had the feeling he was not by himself and looking up at the window he thought he saw her looking back at him, but of course he knew it could not be. It was Jaime Piper a foster kid from his school.Jaime was different than a lot of the other kids, she could sense Evil really sense Evil, as in Demons and it scared her to death. Dr. McKenzie was helping her deal with these issues, or was she? She told Jaime they were going to hunt Evil and find it. Jaime finds herself testing the Cardinals in the Vatican – seeing if they were demon possessed. Crockett Grey finds himself in the middle of all the problems, only because he knows too much and he has to clear his name. He was framed. There are a lot of characters in this book and a lot going on, and a lot of mystery.
This was a very good fast-paced book, but could be very confusing at times. It was one of those books that found you sitting on the edge of your seat, one that you wanted the lights on while you were reading it. I highly recommend it if you like a good mystery.
