In a small village on British Columbia's Sunshine Coast, Zoe Strachan has carefully tucked away a secret past and is living a secluded, private, and happy life. But when her brother arrives on the scene with incriminating childhood diaries--and a blackmail demand--Zoe's fate falls into the hands of Royal Mounted Police Staff Sergeant Karl Allberg, who must use all his wits to unravel the mystery.

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.

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."
