A Dark Chill

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

Newfoundland. As the new police chief in the remote coastal town of St. Anthony, Detective Calista Gates expects to see whales and icebergs—not the blood-curdling scene she discovers at an abandoned campground. Flames in the dark. A trembling twelve-year-old boy, naked and bound, a tight noose around his neck. With one false move, the child could strangle himself to death. When Calista frees the boy, he is too frightened to betray his tormentor.
Far from her hometown of Vancouver, Calista learns that other twelve-year-olds have been exposed to mortal danger in this rugged, isolated place. It doesn’t stop there: A schoolboy goes missing. Can Calista find him before time runs out? Do the college students who come to town intent on scaling an iceberg off the coast—a daredevil move if ever there was one—have anything to do with the horrid events?

Calista risks the villagers’ rage as she tries to hunt down the perpetrator in their midst. In her race to uncover St. Anthony’s darkest secrets, she is haunted by the aftermath of an attack in Vancouver that nearly killed her. Now she realizes that new enemies are emerging from the shadows.

Bernadette Calonego, a Swiss-Canadian author whose crime novels have been translated into English, has lived in Canada for over twenty years. She splits her time between Vancouver, British Columbia, and Newfoundland. Her stories are inspired by the wilderness and expeditions to the North.
