In the third Belle Palmer mystery, Belle takes her friend and employee on a snowshoe trek. Miriam MacDonald brings her spoiled mini-poodle, a gift from investment broker boyfriend, who promises huge returns on her life savings. Later that week, Miriam discovers Elphinstone bludgeoned to death in his condo. Although Miriam's fingerprints alone are found on the Inuit sculpture murder weapon, the collapse of Elphinstone's empire has ruined hundreds of people and made him many dangerous enemies. Miriam is eventually charged with second-degree murder and then, as Belle struggles to pull the pieces of a very complicated puzzle together, Miriam rushes off to North Bay to be with her ailing daughter, and Belle inherits the obnoxious poodle.. Meanwhile, a stalker now has Belle watching her back in the Northern Ontario bush she calls home. Will she find the killer before a bullet finds her?

About the author (2003)

Lou Allin sings two national anthems, having born in Toronto but raised in Ohio when her father followed the film business to Cleveland in 1948. His profession explains her passion for celluloid classics, which shows up frequently in her writing. A Ph.D. in English Renaissance literatrure coincided with the end of the boomer hirings and, discovering that she retained Canadian citizenship, Lou headed north, ending up at Cambrian College in Sudbury, Ontario, where she taught literature, writing and public speaking for more than twenty-five years. That area is the setting for the Belle Palmer mysteries. Lou is now a resident of British Columbia. Her Belle Palmer mystery series includes: Northern Winters Are Murder (2000), Blackflies Are Murder (2002), Bush Poodles Are Murder (2004), Murder, Eh? (2006), and Memories Are Murder (Fall 2007). Her new series, the Holly Martin Mysteries, debuted with And on the Surface Die in the fall of 2008.
