AN ADDICTIVE MUST-READ WHODUNNIT FROM THE NEWEST TALENT IN CRIME FICTION.
Andrea “Andi” Silvers is starting to feel like this tiny fishing village of Coffin Cove, on the Vancouver coast, just might be home. She’s living with Hephzibah and sort of dating Harry. Her job at the Gazette is going well. Things are looking up.
Then the body of a young woman is found on nearby Hope Island, where Hephzibah and Harry’s mother moved to when they were children.
Andi sets out to get the scoop on the story. She wants to be the one to identify the body and to find out what happened.
Meanwhile, Inspector Vega is on holiday in the Yukon, and finds himself caught up in a murder investigation there. A woman has been killed and her husband clinging to life in hospital.
It soon becomes clear that there’s a link to Coffin Cove. The man grew up there and left after his first wife disappeared.
Could the body found at Hope Island be his missing wife?
The stakes ramp up when Harry and Hephzibah’s dad is discovered murdered on his boat.
Did he know something he shouldn’t? The deeper Andi digs, the more dirt she uncovers. But are any of them ready for the truth?
Discover a web of murder and mystery laced with humour and a thread of romance in this fast-paced whodunnit set on the gorgeous coast of Western Canada.
Fans of Joy Ellis, L.J. Ross, Peter Robinson, Thomas King, Louise Penny and Shari Lapena will devour this mesmerizing crime thriller.

⭐⭐⭐⭐ “This one seems to have it all . . . murder, intrigue, mystery, a little humor, a little romance. It's a fast-paced mystery with more than one body falling. The clever plot is filled with skillfully drawn characters, but beware . . . there are a lot of twists and turns that lead to an explosive conclusion.” Booklover
MEET ANDI SILVERS
Andrea “Andi” Silvers is an investigative journalist in her late thirties. She is driven to uncover mysteries and expose truths. She’s attracted to local fisherman Harry Brown, and he’s interested in her, but he won’t engage in a casual relationship. It’s all or nothing for him.
Coffin Cove is a town of contradictions. It was once a thriving community on Canada’s beautiful Pacific coast, surrounded by spectacular nature. But the town’s stunning ocean front is marred by an ugly pulp mill and abandoned fish plant. Fiercely close-knit, kindness and community spirit are hindered by suspicion and mistrust of outsiders.
