Description

In the bucolic mountain town of Trafalgar, British Columbia, a young woman is found dead of a heroin overdose, her baby lying at her side. While this should be an open-and-shut drug case, restraint marks on the victim suggest that the death might not have been completely accidental.As the investigation into the young woman's death—and life—grows, the case becomes increasingly personal for Probationary Constable Molly Smith and Sergeant John Winters. Only two things are known about the dead woman, that her first name is Ashley and that she has a three-month-old baby boy. Who was she? Was this just a drug deal gone wrong, or is there something more sinister at play? Smith's mother, Lucky, has taken in the orphaned baby. Does he hold the key to solving his mother's murder?

Meanwhile, Winters' wife, Eliza, is considering accepting a modeling contract with the same resort development that seems to be ripping apart their close-knit community.Has the disagreement pushed a member of this quiet community to murder?

        December 22, 2008
        At the start of Delany's engaging second mystery to feature Constable Molly Smith (after 2007's In the Shadow of the Glacier
        ), Molly's mother is leaving work one evening at the Trafalgar Women's Support Center in British Columbia when a baby's cry draws her to the nearby woods, where she finds a baby boy, wrapped in a blanket—and the body of a young woman. The victim, presumably the boy's mother, appears to have died from a heroin overdose, but restraint marks on her wrists point to foul play. Molly and her mentor, Sgt. John Winters, comb Trafalgar in an effort to identify the woman. After discovering that her first name was Ashley, the police officers learn that the developer of a controversial new resort being built outside of town had a heated argument with Ashley shortly before she died. Delaney explores the social dynamics of a small mountain community as well as deftly handling the plot's twists and turns as it builds to a pulse-pounding conclusion.

      • content: A sleepy town snuggled in the Kootenay Mountains of British Columbia, Trafalgar is an open-minded place, home to former hippies, young transients, and a fancy new resort. It's also the home of young Constable Molly Smith, who is delicately portrayed by narrator Carrington MacDuffie as reeling from the recent death of her fiancĂ© and trying to build a new life in law enforcement. When Molly's mom discovers a crying baby next to the body of a young woman apparently dead from a heroin overdose, Molly becomes involved in the investigation. MacDuffie portrays Molly's newly growing confidence in her career, as well as her arm's-length relationship with her former-hippie parents, who are humorously caught between their loyalty to their daughter and their instinct to fight the Establishment.
