Publisher's Synopsis:
This evocative Northwest Noir thriller, set in the misty islands of British Columbia, will keep you on edge until its astonishing conclusion. Based on a real-life, unsolved mystery.

Seattle homicide detective Jack Harris - a depressed alcoholic, prone to violence, was kicked off the force for killing a killer. He retired to the Gulf Islands and a quiet life of fly-fishing, sea kayaking and heavy drinking, to escape his demons. Until he finds the 13th severed human foot to wash ashore since 2007. RCMP claims there are no signs of foul play, but as Jack says, “Two feet is an anomaly, three to four statistically curious, six to ten, you have to think dirty. But thirteen feet? Seriously?”

Blond female runners have been disappearing lately in the lower mainland. RCMP corporal Liz MacDonald - an obsessive, ambitious, rookie detective was kicked off a case for beating a suspect. She fits the victim profile perfectly. Young, good-looking, blond long distance runner. She also happens to be convinced that these disappearances are linked to the severed feet. Liz and Jack team up to catch a sadistic serial killer before he catches them.

Fraser C. Heston, has written, produced and directed numerous feature motion pictures including Treasure Island, Steven King’s Needful Things, Alaska, and the award-winning documentary The Search For Michael Rockefeller. Fraser lived for many years in British Columbia and currently resides in Los Angeles.

Heather J. McAdams is a writer and filmmaker. Most recently she was a co-producer on The Search For Michael Rockefeller and has written three screenplays with Fraser C. Heston. Heather lives in Venice, CA with her family and two dogs.

My Thoughts
This is a short read, but has plenty going on.  I couldn't put it down as soon as I read the first page.  The characters are interesting as well as the story line, which is based upon an actual unsolved case.  Set in Canada, Liz gets the help from a retired U.S. investigator, while her coworkers think she is crazy for listening to him.  They think he is involved, but she believes him.  A few twists and turns until the ending.  I Rated This Book:  4/5 Stars ****
