A Murder Mystery

An edge-of-your seat murder mystery set in a forgotten, ocean-facing town on Vancouver Island!

A body washes up on the shores of Lake Templeton, a small town on the coast of Vancouver Island. Sharon Reese, the victim, was a dedicated government employee. Everyone liked her, but no one knew much about her. Was she hiding something?

While the police suspect it was an accident or suicide, Private Investigator, Fati Rizvi, is not convinced. As she sets out to unravel the mystery, another body is found on the shore. Is it the same killer? And can Fati stop them before they strike again?
