Have you ever wanted to be alone to lick your wounds from a broken marriage? Have you ever hidden out in a cabin waiting for the pieces of your life to fit together again? That's what Meg Harris did. She fled to the isolation of a cabin inherited from an aunt in the wilds of Canada where her only neighbors were Algonquins. But life intruded here in the form of gold hunters on Whisper Island and they were a threat to more than Meg's peace of mind. Echo Lake was threatened with contamination from mine run off, Meg's ex-husband, Gareth, was brought back into her life by the mining company, a double murder is committed, and a mystery from her dead aunt's past involves inself in the murders. The aunt is very much a character in the story. Can Meg and her friend from the Fishing Camp, Eric, save the lake. Who owns Whisper Island? How did her aunt's hidden secret come to involve Meg in murder? These are a few of the many questions that need answers while the search for a murderer goes on. Talented R. J. Harlick invites us into the beautiful wilderness of Canada to take part in a hunt for a murderer and in unraveling an intriguing secret from the past that affects the present. Bring your hiking boots and life preserver as you'll be venturing onto the surface of Echo Lake while low flying airplanes threaten you. Highly recommended as a read to hold your attention with characters you will either love or hate and want to know more about their lives. You'll be looking for other books by this creative author. Lots of action and mystery.
