I don't read a lot in this genre, but I found Chalk Valley a tightly plotted page-turner of a procedural thriller. The writing could have been trimmed here and there, and the characters went a little cliche at times, but they were still compelling. Even though you know the killer from Page One, you're still happy to follow the story of his capture through to the end.
I could see this as a short TV series (like Durham County, which was also Canadian), or a David Fincher movie.
