Blackflies Are Murder

(The second book in the Belle Palmer Mystery series)
A novel by

In the sequel to Lou Allin's acclaimed novel Northern Winters Are Murder, it's now high summer in the Canadian Far North, where everyone is bear bait, even the bears. Gunshots chase realtor Belle Palmer from her quiet forest paths. Then, on her remote lakeside road, the savage and unexplainable murder of an elderly neighbor puts her on guard against two-footed killers. Does the answer lie in the woods? In the alleys of the Nickel Capital of the North? Or in the black rock moonscape of an ecological disaster area?

Belle's investigations gradually uncover the sordid details of a sexual abuse scandal in a residential school years before that has left scars on its victim that can never heal. The horrifying truth and its deadly fallout may destroy many more lives before this tragedy reaches its last act.

The distinctive culture and climate of Canada's north create an unusual and distinctive atmosphere in this literate second offering.
