"A Killer in King's Cove" by Iona Whishaw is set in 1946, and is the story of war-weary young ex-intelligence officer Lane Winslow who leaves London looking for a fresh start. When she finds herself happily settled in King's Cove, a sleepy hamlet nestled in the idyllic interior of British Columbia surrounded by a suitably eclectic cast of small-town characters Lane feels like she may finally be able to put her past to rest. But then a body is discovered, the victim of murder, and although Lane works alongside the town's inspectors Darling and Ames to discover who might possibly have motivation to kill, she casts doubt on herself. As the investigation reveals facts that she has desperately tried to keep a secret, it threatens to pull her into a vortex of even greater losses than the ones she has already endured. A simply riveting read by a master of the genre, "A Killer in King's Cove" is especially recommended the personal reading lists of dedicated mystery buffs, as well as an enduringly popular acquisition choice for community library Mystery/Suspense collections.
