Bay of Evil

(The third book in the Detective Calista Gates series)
A novel by

A terrifying secret, buried in Canada’s wilderness. People who touch it die. One by one. In northern Newfoundland, where Viking ships landed a thousand years earlier, Detective Sergeant Calista Gates awaits the arrival of a cruise ship bearing hundreds of tourists. Camouflaged among them may be someone hell-bent on Calista’ s destruction. The young police chief in this wind-swept territory has received an anonymous warning: one of the ship’s passengers has it out for her. But then events take a sudden turn. A prominent passenger vanishes without a trace. The next day, Calista Gates stumbles across the battered body of an unknown man in an isolated bay.
The murder investigation leads her to an archeological dig in the barren vastness of Labrador, where two students disappeared six years ago. Can she uncover the truth before more people wind up dead? And before she becomes a victim herself?
This is the third case in the Calista Gates series, which can be read as a stand-alone novel, independently of the two previous volumes.
The author Bernadette Calonego whose books have appeared with Piper, Ullstein, and Edition M and have been translated into English, has lived for more than twenty years in Canada, where she has been inspired by the country’s wilderness and her expeditions to the north. The German version of her mystery novel
Stormy Cove became a bestseller, and Oh, wie schön ist Kanada!, a nonfiction book about her experiences as a foreign newspaper correspondent, landed on the renowned bestseller list of the German magazine Der Spiegel.
