With the traumatic events of Foxed behind him, Detective Lane has been promoted to the head of the Calgary Major Crimes Unit, a position that brings new responsibilities, as well as a new partner in the form of headstrong rookie Nigel Li.

Lane and Li's first case, an investigation into the death of a migrant worker, points them in the direction of Douglas Jones, the leader of a radical religious compound in northern Alberta, who has been suspected of bombing oil and gas pipelines. With the Calgary Stampede just days away, and anti-Muslim tension mounting in town in the wake of the "honour killing" of a young girl, Lane and Li must foil a potential terror attack.

Praise for Glycerine:

"Glycerine is a thoughtful book that leads the reader through a very familiar Calgary, both urban and suburban. It's an enjoyable, quick read."
--Mari Sadano, Alberta Views
"A dynamite book!"
--Shannan Spitz, ForeWord Reviews
