Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "With her career in tatters and her marriage receding in the rear-view mirror, ex-RCMP corporal Lacey McCrae trades her uniform for a tool belt and the Lower Mainland for the foothills west of Calgary. Amid the oil barons, hockey stars, and other high rollers living in the wilderness playground is her old university roommate, Dee Phillips. Dee's glossy life was shattered by a reckless driver. Now she's haunted by a nighttime prowler only she can hear. As snowmelt swells the Elbow River, threatening to close the only bridge back to civilization, Lacey must control her fears and find out who has reason to want Dee silenced. A missing hockey player and the strange behaviour of the neighbours throws shadows of doubt on several locals. But just when Lacey starts to put the pieces together, it seems that she may be putting a target on her own back. Someone has a secret, and they'll go to great lengths to ensure it is never revealed."-- Provided by publisher.

    Barnard's debut novel won the 2016 Arthur Ellis Award for best unpublished crime novel, and it's easy to see why it's no longer unpublished. It has a gripping story: former RCMP officer Lacey McCrae is visiting with her friend Dee, who is still recovering from a hit-and-run that nearly killed her, and who says she hears a stranger moving around the house. Lacey must decide whether to get Dee to safety while she can, or hole up and deal with whatever happens. The novel also boasts vividly drawn characters and a strikingly evoked sense of place, rural Calgary. A fine debut, one hopes the first of many Lacey McCrae novels to come.
