Amanda Doucette searches desperately for the connection between bones discovered in a remote Alberta coulee and an uncle who went missing thirty years ago.

Photographer Todd Ellison is engrossed in a photo shoot deep in Alberta's dinosaur country when he stumbles upon human bones buried in the sand of a remote coulee. Not far away, while driving through the Alberta prairie, Amanda Doucette glimpses an abandoned farmhouse that reminds her of an old photograph hanging on her aunt's wall.

Who is the cocky young cowboy in the photo? Could it be connected to Amanda's uncle, who went missing in Alberta thirty years ago? As Amanda starts to make connections between his disappearance and the body in the coulee, she discovers more questions than answers. To make matters worse, a mysterious person will stop at nothing to get her to abandon the investigation.

Les vurderinger

«The eloquently described landscape is a visceral part of the plot. Fans of regional mysteries will find much to like.»

Publishers Weekly

«An informed and satisfying read that marks yet another milestone in Amanda Doucette's compelling cross-country odyssey.»

Ottawa Review of Books

«The author, a retired psychologist, does a fine job of building her characters; unlike some amateur-sleuth mysteries, whose protagonists seem either too clever or too cute by half, Fradkin populates her series with real people whose lives encompass more than solving the odd crime. Keep ’em coming.»

Booklist, for Prisoners of Hope

«Fradkin's forte is the emotional cost of crime.»

Ottawa Citizen

«Barbara Fradkin knows how to write a strong, compelling mystery, and her settings create vivid mental pictures as you read.»

Kittling

«This crime novel is a good fit for both mystery readers and anyone trying to navigate the tricky questions of love and relationships in our highly mobile modern society.»

Bookish

«? A high-adrenaline plunge»

Publishers Weekly, starred review for The Trickster's Lullaby

«? Fradkin, a retired psychologist, creates well-drawn, complex characters, and she knows how to build tension and drama that hold readers to the end.»
