Sex, politics and family secrets lure the local RCMP officers into an intriguing murder case involving gunrunners and separatists from Newfoundland and Quebec working together for a common cause. This book is an enjoyable murder mystery, but it is more than that. The underlying currents and intrigues reflect the unique histories and cultures of this province, Quebec and Canada. The issues surrounding Newfoundland and Labradorís confederation with Canada, Quebec separatism, and the traditions and culture of the RCMP make this a truly Canadian book, combined with the universal ingredients of the classic murder mystery. There is a murder in an isolated marsh, an intelligent but often misunderstood lead investigator and a brilliant cast of local and come-from-away suspects. What more could you want?"
