Plot Summary
Do or Die is the first novel in the Inspector Green series by author Barbara Fradkin.  A university student is murdered in the library of Ottawa University.  Inspector Green is called in to investigate but his initial investigation seems to find no suspects or motives for the attack.  However, as he investigates he uncovers jilted lovers and fraud and corruption and must sift through the clues to solve the murder.

My Review
This book was actually quite an enjoyable read.  In many respects the book reads as a standard British police procedural but without the heavy description.  The language and style is cut back much more like an American crime novel.  A cross of the two cultures really shows through.

The plot is well written and well thought out.  The characters, particularly Inspector Green, are certainly very interesting.  Green seems to be in self destruct mode with his personal life, complicating his investigation.  The book is very police procedural top heavy so lots of witness statements and interviewing suspects in the book.  Overall I quite enjoyed this one.
