This episode celebrates the thrill of a good mystery. Our three guest authors have all spent a lot of time thinking about where to hide the bodies and how best to through us off the scent. It’s a good thing they are using those powers to delight and entertain!

 

Dark August is the internationally bestselling debut of Ottawa’s own Katie Tallo. It’s a page-turning mystery about a young woman haunted by her tragic past, who returns to her hometown and discovers that there might be more to her police detective mother’s death—and last case—than she ever could have imagined.

 

Hamilton’s Scott Thornley returns with Vantage Point, the fourth suspense-filled instalment of his critically acclaimed MacNeice Mysteries. This time, MacNeice and his team on the hunt for a sophisticated serial killer who draws his inspiration from classic works of art.

 

Amy Stuart, the bestselling author of Still Mine and Still Water, returns with Still Here. PI Clare O’Dey is on the hunt for two missing persons. Little does she know she’s the one being hunted. Malcolm is gone. And no one knows where or why. As she searches for the man who helped her build her career as a private eye, Clare discovers that many women are in grave danger. And she is among them.
