In a small mountain town, newspaper reporter Stella Mosconi never speaks of her crippling fear of deep water. Spring runoff sends local creeks on the rampage, and Stella watches as the lake rises outside her door. When a new friend is found dead in her rowboat, Stella is drawn into the investigation despite a complicated history with the officer in charge. The death of a second woman—a suspect—brings more trouble Stella’s way as she struggles to find the killer. To learn more about this publisher, click here: http://bit. ly/2lVGQwI

"This entertaining read, which was shortlisted for the 2016 Arthur Ellis Award for Best Unpublished Crime Novel, takes readers on an enjoyable journey to discover the truth behind two untimely deaths. " —Aleesha Harris, Vancouver Sun

"Toews builds interest in Stella and other characters as she mingles their personal conflicts with a mystery that will force Stella to face her deepest fear and keep readers guessing to the end. It all bodes well for what looks to be a promising series. " —Publishers Weekly

"Toews has a nice eye for details that give charm to the B. C. outback. .. this one shows promise to come. " —Margaret Cannon, Globe and Mail

"The reader is kept in the dark until the moment, not quite at the denouement, when the murderer is exposed in an unintentional alcohol-lubricated soliloquy. I owe J. G. Toews a tremendous vote of thanks for reigniting my interest in B. C.-authored crime fiction—and I look forward to the next book in the series.
