Foul Deeds

  Author:   Linda Moore    
  Publisher:  Nimbus Publishing

A professional criminologist, Rosalind works with a cranky Private Investigator named McBride–a long-time association that has led her from one sordid foray to another in the world of crime. Her passionate escape is theatre and her latest venture is with an ad hoc company of out-of-work actors putting on a production of Hamlet. Ros finds her work on Shakespeare’s language to be a fabulous distraction until the uncanny parallels between life and art bring her face to face with murder.

Peter King, a respected environmental lawyer, dies suddenly- supposedly of heart failure- but his son Daniel, haunted by bad dreams, believes otherwise. Before McBride can get to the bottom of the case, Ros’s friend Sophie- the actress playing Ophelia- and her advisor Harvie Greenblatt, the prosecutor, are both drawn deep into danger. Ros and McBride discover that the case involves more than either of them bargained for: kidnapping, a city hall cover-up, a late-night chase and family secrets. Set in Halifax, Foul Deeds is an intriguing, fast-paced story with theatrical flare and plenty of humour. Linda Moore is the crime writer Maritime readers have been waiting for.
