Finley Martin has launched his new book, Killings at Little Rose.
It takes place in a coastal village where what’s been buried doesn’t stay buried, what’s lost at sea doesn’t stay lost. Sleuth Anne Brown finds herself in an eastern PEI fishing community, working undercover for the new owner of a seafood-processing plant plagued by vandalism, loss, and ill luck. The community around Little Rose Harbour has been shocked by the discovery of old, secret remains of a baby, and all their entangled secrets are coming to the surface.
On the cusp of a clandestine love affair and herself keeping secrets, Anne must sort through gossip, rumours, and lies—and dodge the menace of violence—to uncover the canker at the core of little rose. But will she learn in time to prevent the mystery from becoming motive for murder?
