Northern Ontario realtor Belle Palmer is showing the lakefront mansion of a prominent businesswoman when she discovers the lady strangled in her bathtub. Could this third break-and-enter death reveal a serial killer at large in the Nickel Capital? The woman’s only child, a precocious 12-year-old named Micro, comes to stay with Belle's neighbors and wins her heart. Then after an argument, the boy disappears, riding off into the cold September night on his bicycle. His computer shows a cryptic correspondence that sends the police checking pedophile registers as an Amber Alert is issued. Racing against time as fall temperatures plummet, Belle hooks up with a bumbling PI and joins the search. Belle must flee into the bush, where she has every chance of becoming lost and disoriented, chased by murderers who will stop at nothing to protect a multi-million-dollar criminal empire.

About the author (2006)

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.
