When Val Cameron, a Senior Editor with a New York publishing company, is sent to the Canadian Northwoods to sign a reclusive bestselling author or risk losing her job, she is definitely out of her element. Val is certain she can convince Charles Cable, but first she has to find him.Aided by a float plane pilot whose wife was killed two years ago in a case gone cold, Val's hunt for the recluse becomes even more muddled. When all signs point to Cable as the killer, she must work to clear his name before the scandal sinks her career.Trapped in a wilderness lake community where livelihoods collide and a killer lurks, the prospect of running into a bear could be the least of Val's problems.
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "In this edgy first in a new cozy series from Costa (You Cannoli Die Once), Val Cameron, a senior editor at a New York publishing company, travels to the tiny town of Wendaban, Ontario, at the behest of her boss to sign Charles Cable, a reclusive author, to a contract. Local pilot Wade Decker takes Val, who feels very much out of her Manhattan element, to meet Charles and shows her the area, telling her a little about the community. Her instincts tell her there's something suspicious about the death two years earlier of Wade's wife, Leslie, and she begins to look into the connections with a summer camp and the man she came to see. A strong plot and engaging characters make for a well-crafted mystery, and Val's humorous attempts to cope with the wilderness do much to lighten the tension. The core of the story is Val's discovery of her own self-worth. Agent: John Talbot, Talbot Fortune Agency. (Jan.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
