Volume two of the Herring Cove Road series.
** "More than just another mystery. This one grabs you by the heart" -Review by Karen Laird of Under the Shade Tree Blog.**
The first murder of a child raised eyebrows, the second raised alarms.
Ten-year old Dewey is moving, and he couldn't be more excited; though, he's alone in his enthusiasm. Lisa, his mother, and recently retired Avriel, his next door neighbour and best buddy, don't share his excitement regarding the move from the bungalow in a middle class neighbourhood to a dirty basement level apartment in the lower-class neighbourhood at the edge of Halifax’s city limits where two murders have recently occurred.
This sometimes lighthearted and at other times intense, character driven novel follows Dewey Dixon as he befriends Blue, a streetwise boy, and Stevie, a boy who only talks through whispers, and the three find themselves confronted by a killer preying on children.

From his first night ever at the hospital under the care of a nurse from Hell, the language tension lingering between a semi-monolingual Anglophone within a primarily Francophone hospital, waking up during his surgery, being hit on by an attractive female patient who just so happens to be..., and much more, the story will entertain, educate and perhaps even frighten.
Mr. Rosen is broken, and the only thing keeping him together is his progressively sickening wife. To make matters worse, his wife had insisted and then moved them to a smaller house in lower-middle class neighbourhood directly next door to racist whose nine-year old son addresses him as Mr.Jew. The future looks pretty bleak for Mr. Rosen, but all is not as it may seem.
