The tranquillity of a tight-knit neighbourhood in Victorian Toronto is shattered when a young girl becomes the next victim in a string of robberies, missing persons and murder. Why is her father acting so strangely? Could he somehow be involved? Are the two murders and the disappearance of a neighbour connected? Detective Albert Hodgins travels east to Kingston and north to the tiny hamlet of Pine Grove looking for answers. The trail eventually leads to New York and a rather rough NY Captain whose methods are almost deadly. Hodgins frantically tries to piece everything together so the person responsible can pay for his, or her, crime.

About the Author

Nanci M. Pattenden is a professional genealogist, and an author of historical crime fiction. After digging into her own genealogy, Nanci uncovered a story about a young ancestor, sent to Canada from an English workhouse, who ended up on trial for murder. This sparked her interest in writing fiction, and launched the beginning of her first novel.

Nanci has published two novellas, Body in the Harbour and Death on Duchess Street. She also has several non-fiction articles in The Attic (Aurora Historical Society), Ancestors (York Region Branch OGS), and Site Lines (National Historic Sites Alliance for Ontario). Her interest in genealogy, local history and love of Victorian murder mysteries have merged to create a new Canadian Victorian murder mystery writer. She is a member of Crime Writers of Canada, The Writers Community of York Region, and the Ontario Genealogical Society (OGS). She has completed the Creative Writing program at the University of Calgary, and has completed two programs with The Institute of Genealogical Studies (Canadian and English studies).

Nanci currently resides in Newmarket, Ontario with her diabetic cat, and can be contacted through her website at
