Now Available: My New Mystery Novel – Spiked
For Ottawa Citizen crime columnist Kris Redner, the corruption trial of a disgraced former Conservative cabinet minister opens the door to a secret world of espionage and ruthless political double-dealing. Who is the Chinese embassy employee who falls to her death from the roof of Kris’ apartment building? How is the dead woman connected to what is being billed as the political trial of the century? Is turncoat cabinet minister Luc Champagne the man who connects all the pieces of the puzzle?
Political pressure and national security concerns have tied the police’s hands. It’s up to Kris to get to the bottom of an apparent homicide and uncover evidence that could prevent an innocent man from going to jail.
