Though Karl Alberg is effectively the police chief in the town of Sechelt, the most pressing thing on his desk right now is the spunky old lady who has apparently absconded from her retirement home, most likely, it?s widely believed, in search of a good martini. But a storm is brewing for Alberg, just a few miles down the peninsula. Zoe Strachan was an angry child, and she?s grown into an angry, if eerily seductive woman. Over the years, she has built up elaborate structures to contain her anger, but now those structures have been shattered. A refugee from big-city policing, Alberg thinks he?s seen it all. But he?s not even going to know what hit him.

From Library Journal:

A small town on the Pacific coast of British Columbia provides the evocative backdrop for this work of striking clarity and forcefulness. After Zoe Strachan's ne'er-do-well, blackmailing brother "tumbles" down her basement steps to his death, she searches his house unsuccessfully for incriminating notebooks, and shelters his previously unknown adopted son. Zoe--aloof, beautiful, and truly bizarre--challenges all the resources of Mountie Karl Alberg, who only half-believes her story. Apparently effortless but finely crafted prose supports the narrowly focused plot, wonderful characters, and gorgeous descriptions.

From Publishers Weekly:

RCMP Sgt. Karl Alberg and other residents of Sechelt, British Columbia, introduced in The Suspect encounter Zoe Strahan, a beautiful, aloof killer who has most recently dispatched her blackmail-minded brother and is planning an attack on both her nephew and an elderly woman. PW called this "rich in humorous and poignant aspects as well as fierce suspense."

It's sunny days for Staff Sergeant Karl Alberg, even as everyone else in Canada is shivering. The magnificent Cassandra Mitchell, who has a disconcerting habit of disappearing from both the town of Sechelt and Alberg's bed, has appeared once again. And though Alberg is effectively the police chief, the most press ing thing on his desk right now is the spunky old lady who has apparently absconded from her retirement home most likely, it's widely believed, in search of a good martini. But a storm is brewing for Alberg, just a few miles down the peninsula. Zoe Strachan was an angry child, and she's grown into an angry, if eerily seductive woman. Over the years, she has built up elaborate structures to contain her anger, but now those structures have been shattered. Arefugee from big-city policing, Alberg thinks he's seen it all.
