Canadian author J.E. Barnard’s novel ‘When the Flood Falls’ features ex-RCMP Corporal Lacey McCrae. She moves to the foothills of Calgary and takes up carpentry. When an old university roommate is being haunted by someone skulking about in the night, Lacey steps in to help. This is a fast-paced and well-written mystery.

Linden MacIntyre’s book ‘Punishment’ is another terrific read from this award-winning author. The story is about a suspicious death and the struggle between those directly connected to it. This book has plenty of twists and turns, deceptions and treachery.
