Death at the Point
by Andrew Dutfield

Some see outsized beauty where others only see bleakness, like the sweeping landscape of Hecla Island, situated two hours north of Winnipeg, Canada. Death at the Point is largely set in this real-life area with Icelandic roots that originally lured Henry Trevellyn and his wife Julia to its rocky shores as a weekend respite. Originally an emigre from London and now a retired member of the Winnipeg Police Service’s Major Crimes Unit, he alternates his time between, volunteering in Winnipeg and relaxing in the unspoilt tranquility of island life. He finds himself longing to spend more time at the couple’s cottage on Hecla, kayaking its lonely shores and wandering its lush forest trails with his Labrador retriever, Skip. When a tall red-headed stranger appears on the island and soon after a body is found, Henry’s unyielding curiosity and investigative skills kick back into gear. Both the close-knit community and the solitude Henry has come to enjoy has been shattered. The Trevellyn’s once care-free days become mired in mystery and danger as Henry becomes consumed by a series of unsolved crimes that lead him to discover the island’s dark past.

A retired engineer, Andrew Dutfield lived in the UK and Southern Africa before immigrating to Canada, which has been home for 26 years. His interest in history, immigrant history in particular and fascination with the relative isolation of Hecla Island and its original Icelandic settlement, sparked the inspiration for Death at the Point. For the last five years, he has been chair and president of the Manitoba Writers’ Guild. He also enjoys composing music in his basement studio and cross-country skiing. Dutfield lives in Winnipeg and on Hecla Island with Jackie, his wife of 40 years. They have three children and five grandchildren.
