Editorial Reviews

Review

"This fast-paced thriller was a quick, enjoyable read. Set in ...a small Canadian city 2 hours from Montreal, I found myself having some things in common with the novel's protagonist... The plot twists and turns were enough to keep me finding it difficult to put the book down. The book's final surprise snuck up on me (although in hindsight, I feel I should have suspected it....kudos to Kate Burns for one last little zinger there!)"  - Kim H., Goodreads Review

"Small towns can switch between warm and comforting to claustrophobicwithin seconds and the author captures this feeling completely ...reminded me of the movie Fargo."  - J. Hunt

"Ijust now had the chance to sit down and read it and was up until 2 a.m., since I couldn't put it down. I LOVED it! The main character waslikeable, the plot was very interesting and the end twists and turnswere quite surprising ...I can't wait to read the newest book."  - Brenda Smith

"This little gem of a novel... set in Canada's Capital region... features a mystery that unravels even more mysteries. The flow oflanguage, memorable characters and story twists make it a swift andunforgettable read."   - Madapples Book Review

"With great economy and assurance the author conveys Julia's horror...it appears simple, but such writing is difficult to produce."   - Lynn Clayton, Author of Deadly Nevergreen

"Clean, crisp and snappy paragraphs with to-the-point dialogue."  - Robert Young, Author of Auctoratus

"The vivid details that the author paints makes you feel that youare at the places and they feel familiar. The characters are likeableand believable. A highly recommended read. I can't wait for her nextnovel."  - TonyInMontreal, review on Apple's iBookstore

From the Author

An excerpt from No Colour for the Dead:

There was a crowd, of course.

A voice floated over.

"Dammit, I don't know who to call, find out. And get this thing turned off! We've got to remove him now."

The officer blocking her hesitated, and Julia pushed her way through. The cane helped, and Father Geoff cleared the rest of the way by calling over to her.

Father Geoff was standing by the fountain, out of which sprouted a leg in a wet navy pant leg with a shredded hem. As she walked over, the rest of the man came into view.

Saul of Tarsus.

This Saul lay face up in the fountain. Water splashed all around his floating form, continuing to baptize him over and over. Julia could barely take in the sight. His unblinking eyes. His face turned to the heavens. He had experienced a revelation all his own. The expression on his face told her -- he had seen a light, a terrible light. And had gone to it.

She looked up at the priest. Father Geoff's eyes had gone beyond sorrow. She didn't know what else to do, so she threw her arms around him and kissed his forehead, and he buried his face into her shoulder and began to cry.
