Dead Men Don’t Retire (Spirit of the Law Mysteries) by Lolli Powell Available April 5

Author: Lolli Powell

Shelby Wolfe’s life has gotten complicated—two eccentric aunts, too many attractive men, and too many roommates—both living and dead.

It’s winter in Goose Lick, and Shelby Wolfe is settling into her new home. Chief Jebediah Carpenter doesn’t seem to be in any hurry to move on, but when Lillian Harris, a local lawsuit-crazy woman, is stabbed to death with one of the café’s knives, Shelby is kind of glad Jeb is still around. Just hours before, the woman, Lil Harris, had stormed into the café and accused Shelby’s cousin, Red, of trying to poison her. During the ensuing argument, Red had a knife in his hand, the same knife that ended up being the murder weapon.

Since the murdered woman had sued nearly everyone in town and claimed to know things about people they would want kept secret, almost everyone in Goose Lick had a motive for wanting to see Lillian dead. But thanks to the argument and the knife, the police zero in on Red. Shelby knows her cousin wouldn’t have killed anyone, but she’s convinced someone is trying to set him up. She vows to prove his innocence by finding the real killer, and she has Chief Jeb Carpenter to help her.

After all, dead men don’t retire.

There is no exact count of the women missing from the infamous highway in British Columbia, Canada. Official reports state that nineteen girls have vanished since the first young victim disappeared in 1969 from a motel bar at Williams Lake. Jack Malchenko, a detective with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in Prince Rupert, believes the total could be well over one hundred. He sees their faces every day on the wall in his office. The victims haunt his dreams. It drives Jack to keep searching the secluded logging trails for any evidence that might help give closure to the families who have lost their loved ones. During an investigation at the farm owned by serial killer Willie Pickton, health issues derailed his career. As the years pass, Jack continues working the highway cases as a private sleuth for hire until loving pressure from his wife, Angela, reaches a breaking point. She wants to spend their golden years together without the detective work getting in the way, so Jack finally agrees to hand over all the old case files to his former partner, Sam.

Everything changes when Rayne McRae, a beautiful high school girl from the Moricetown Reserve, goes missing and her life is put up for auction. The public cannot turn away from this sensational crime. They fixate on Rayne’s coral-green eyes, along with the tantalizing live video feed of her naked body tied in ropes. Rayne’s struggle for dignity compels sympathisers to vote for her salvation. As Jack gets pulled into this new mystery, a Cease and Desist order arrives from his former Mountie station, warning him of investigating anything else highway-related.

With his future and marriage on the line, Jack knows that if he wants to solve this newest abduction, he will have to trust Taima White Elk of the Kyuquot band for help. Taima was the best tracker available, but also Jack’s estranged father, who abandoned him as a child. Jack struggles with a decision until realizing there are hidden clues in the disturbing video of Rayne’s murder auction. They all connect back to the place where Jack barely survived; the farm of the most notorious killer in Canada’s history. Jack’s past nightmares were coming for him again.

Sometimes water is thicker than blood.

Andre Robinson had never received a normal childhood. Being given a male name at birth and being taken away from her father at age one, she was forced into her mother’s overprotective care where she was rarely allowed to leave the house and endured a sugar-coated homeschooling experience. For ten years, she had questions about who her father was and periodically dreamt about him living with her and her mother in a secluded cabin in the woods. Yet whenever she brought up the topic of her father for discussion, her mother would evade it and send her away.

On the night of her eleventh birthday, an unfathomable accident led to the sudden death of her mother, and she was taken away from Ivanestible and put into her father’s custody. At first, her father seemed kind and loving, but lurking within his warm-colored human aura rested a color that was dark and sinister, almost black. For two years, she struggled to decipher what the dark part of his aura meant, which led to a truth that was more horrible than she imagined.

This is the first installment of Andre’s story before she got involved with Roseway.
