The working title is 'IVY', but I'm currently dithering around about that, so who knows.

Here's some back cover copy:

Recently forced into early retirement, investigative journalist Jamie Lapointe has settled into a quiet life which mostly involves smoking weed and playing poker with an old college buddy. Then he runs into Deena McCallum. He hasn’t seen her in forty-six years, not since she dumped him and married his nemesis. Now she’s asking for his help to find the man who murdered her daughter. He loved her then; despite everything, he loves her still. Against his better judgement, he is drawn into the homicide investigation.

Within days, things go terribly wrong. Deena is portrayed as a murderer and a slut on national television, and she is arrested and charged with the death of her daughter. Now it is up to Jamie to find a way to clear her name and bring the real killer to justice. At the same time, he must deal with the ghosts of the past, and the events which brought them together and tore them apart in the days which followed the Summer of Love.

IVY is a fast-paced mystery and a love story. It is also a look back at the Sixties and the passions of a generation searching for truth and justice amid the turmoil of racism and war.

It’s now available as an e-book and in paperback on Amazon (exclusively, for now).

Flash Drive is a mystery. Like my first book, the story takes place in Montreal, and involves a grou... Read more of this blog post »
