Overview

“A tale of sex, murder, and political intrigue on Prince Edward Island . . . an absorbing tale that has excitement and soul in equal measure.” —Publishers Weekly
 
In 2001, a Canadian police constable murders his girlfriend in a fit of jealous rage. When he realizes what he’s done, he manages to construct an elaborate cover-up. Only one person knows the truth.
 
Now, more than a decade later, Anne Brown is running her late uncle’s detective agency after spending several years as his assistant. One day, the postman delivers a long-lost letter addressed to her uncle from a woman named Carolyn Jollimore. She says she has evidence about a murder and begs for help. With her uncle dead, Anne looks up the letter’s author—but finds that Jollimore, too, is now dead, and that a old case once thought solved may not be as simple as it seemed . . .
 
This twisting novel of mystery and suspense from a new star in Canadian crime fiction features the private investigator first introduced in The Reluctant Detective.
