A Fiona Silk Mystery

As if it weren't bad enough being a failed romance writer with no sex life, poor Fiona Silk has to cope with the spectacularly embarrassing demise of her old lover, the poet, Benedict Kelly. It's exactly the sort of thing people notice in St. Aubaine, Quebec, a picturesque bilingual tourist town of two thousand. Now the police start getting nasty, the media vans stay parked on her lawn and the neighbours' tongues keep wagging in both of Canada's official languages. Worse, someone's bumping off the other suspects. Can Fiona outwit a murderer in the mood for some serious mischief?

stylish and amusing

as adept at comedy as she is at laying out a tangled crime trail…Maffini surrounds Fiona with memorable
but often annoying—friends…Surviving their needs and obsessions is almost as daunting as solving the murder
