TENSION RUNS HIGH AS AN INNOCENT TRIP TURNS DEADLY.

Lady Judith Montcalm calls on Dorothy and Alan to help solve a series of petty crimes perplexing the local Mounties in the picturesque city of Victoria on Vancouver Island.

Poisonous plants are stolen from the stunning Butchart Gardens and hawks are wreaking havoc with the locals’ chickens.

Dorothy and Alan immediately jump on a plane to British Columbia and settle themselves into the heart of the community.

But before Dorothy can piece it all together, the petty crimes turn deadly.

A young woman is found dead, her body covered in deep cuts. Are they claw marks, knife wounds or what?

Dorothy intends to find out. But the deeper she digs, the more she suspects that she’s dealing with a deadlier breed of killer.

Perfect for fans of Stella Cameron, Faith Martin, Agatha Christie, Frances Evesham, Betty Rowlands, or M.C. Beaton.
