From the Inside Flap:

When a body is found in the garden of a fabulous mansion during a house party, it's time to bring in the law, in the form of Paul Manziuk and Jacquie Ryan.

Manziukis a born cop who started as a lowly cop on the beat and worked his way up to Inspector, which is as much responsiblility as he wants. He cares, not only about people but about stopping evil, and since a caring cop is an easy mark, he uses gruffness as a wall of protection. Manziuk has a long-suffering wife and three grown children.

Jacquie Ryan is Manziuk's counter-point. A vivacious 28-year-old who knows she has been promoted primarily because she is a black woman and , therefore, a double minority, she nevertheless grasps the opportunity with both hands. Ryan has a university degree in psychology and an advanced degree in criminology, with marks at the top of her class. She is determined to prove not only that she deserved the promotion but also that she can be as good as any cop in the department - including Manziuk.

Shaded Light is a modern cozy with all the ingredients for a delightful mystery - intriguing characters, dry humor, a little romance, and lots of twist and turns.

About the Author:

N. J. Lindquist is an award-winning author and journalist and an encouraging speaker whose desire is to see each person freed from the hurts of the past and empowered to serve God joyfully and effectively.

N. J.’s published books include the Manziuk and Ryan classic mystery series (Shaded Light and Glitter of Diamonds), the Circle of Friends coming-of-age series about a very “ordinary” 17-year-old boy, and In Time of Trouble, a poignant stand-alone novel about a troubled teen. She is also the author of three 1:1 discipleship manuals for teens, one of which was co-authored by one of her sons.

As a writer, N. J. is known for having characters readers quickly learn to care about; intricate, dynamic plots; the ability to have the reader laughing one minute and shedding tears the next; and her reflection of the multi-cultural patchwork quilt of her homeland.

N. J currently serves as Executive Director of The Word Guild, an association of Canadian writers and editors who are Christian. (www.thewordguild.com).

In March of 2006, N. J. received the 2006 Canadian Leading Women Award for Communications and Media for her work in co-founding The Word Guild.

N. J. has received numerous awards for her writing (including The Word Guild 2005 Awards for Best Mystery/Suspense Book, Best Young Adult Book, and Best Independently Published Book), but her most memorable award to date was a plaque, along with a "Deeds Speak" certificate, presented in 2006 by the York Regional Police Chief Armand P. La Barge for her "contribution to facilitating positive change within the community" and "assisting youth in dealing with issues like anger, fear, and peer pressure" through her book, In Time of Trouble.

N. J., her husband of 35 years, and their four adult sons are based in Markham, Ontario, Canada.
